GVG Rhein-Erft and Rheinische NETZGesellschaft are setting the course for a climate-neutral future with the "H2-MiX" project and are relying fully on measurement technology from Mems AG.
In Niederberg and Borr, hydrogen (H2) is being used for the first time to supply heat to private households. As part of the "H2-MiX" project, up to 20 percent hydrogen will be fed into the gas grid of the two Erftstadt districts at the beginning of 2022. The cooperation partners GVG Rhein-Erft GmbH (GVG) and Rheinische NETZGesellschaft mbH (RNG) as regional distribution network operators, as well as TÜV Rheinland Energy GmbH (TÜV) are in charge of "H2-MiX". The innovative project is intended to be a first step for the use of hydrogen in gas distribution networks and to support Erftstadt on its way to becoming a showcase region for future-oriented energy solutions.
As shown in our article in May 2021, our measurement technology is ideally suited for measuring the hydrogen content in the network and for process monitoring of the blending system. The gasQS™ flonic determines the calorific value and density in the plant, while the very fast and sensitive gasQS™ static measures the hydrogen content at the end customer. The project partners also use our gasQS™ cloud solution to record, process and display the measurement data.
