Hydros Power completes successful testing of its prototype for renewable hydrogen generation

Hydros Power successfully carried out the first proof of concept of its prototype for on-board renewable hydrogen generation in an aquatic drone (USV) to obtain a great autonomy on 11 and 12 February. The tests took place over two days in the Port of Alicante and in the city of Almansa and are the result of the startup’s participation in the PORTS 4.0 ideas programme, promoted by the State Ports Compensation Fund. During the development of the programme, the team has collaborated with different agents of the Science Park of the University of Alicante, Miguel Hernández University and the Port Authority of Alicante.

The test served to corroborate the theoretical design of the system initially proposed, being capable of storing the surplus energy from the solar production of photovoltaic panels in green hydrogen. In this way, an alternative storage method to lithium batteries is achieved, which allows greater autonomy to be obtained, with zero associated emissions and zero environmental risk.
