In December, Technical Director of ES Group Oleksandr Mazurok spoke about the work on the NPHyCo project in an interview with the Ukrainian industry resource Uatom.org. The interview covered topics related to hydrogen energy, including prospects for hydrogen production at Ukrainian nuclear power plants (NPPs), and the introduction of hydrogen plants in Ukraine and the world. He provided an overview of the project’s goals and objectives, as well as the work performed and interim results achieved to date.
He highlighed that three types of electrolyzers have been selected for the project: two of them use hydrogen electrolysis and one uses steam electrolysis. At European plants, steam electrolysis may be the optimal solution, but the current results show that this option is not possible for Ukrainian NPPs.
