This document has discussed the main possibilities and R&D gaps for the storage of H2 in gaseous, liquid, and solid form. A summary of the main findings with respect to technology status, best options, and the main R&D issues that need to be addressed is provided.

Gaseous H2 Storage: The C-fiber composite vessel is individuated as the possible option for this system. The main R&D issues that need to be addressed include fracture mechanics, safety, compression energy and volumetric reduction. A market solution is the piping storage of the Coselle® system.

Liquid H2 Storage: Solutions are already on the market also for the liquid hydrogen storage, but they also are more expensive. The Cryogenic insulated dewar is considered up to now the most performing.

Solid H2 Storage: It is too early to determine the best option, but some many potential solutions could be individuated. Different characteristics have to be focused, such as weight, lower desorption temperatures, higher desorption kinetics, recharge time and pressure, heat management, cost, pyrophoricity, cyclic life, container compatibility and optimization.

Other issues regarding hydrogen transportation and loading/unloading have been presented and a Single Point mooring seems to be the preferred solution.

NATURE: REPORT

DISSEMINATION: PUBLIC

SCHEDULED: JUN/2014

ACHIEVED: SEP/2014

This is a report identifying risk analysis requirements for integration of packages into service module. The present document reports the findings of the two HAZard and OPerability Review (HAZOP) Review Sessions and of the further follow-up, showing current status of actions implementation in the Design to date. The analysis of the 12 nodes identified is resulted overall (across the two workshops in 2013 and 2014) in 66 recommendations for Project improvement, agreed by the HAZOP Team. Out of these, 36 Actions were identified during the October 2013 main workshop and other 30 Actions were added during the May 2014 update. Overall, out of the 66 actions, 9 of them were already closed and 4 other actions were superseded. The remaining 53 Actions have been addressed afterwards.

NATURE: REPORT

DISSEMINATION: PUBLIC

SCHEDULED: JUL/2013

ACHIEVED: OCT/2014

The present delivery outlines general principles and results for the safety assessment, which has been produced to ensure safe operation of the energy system during the offshore platform operations. It is mainly based on generally accepted procedures for HAZOP, codes and standards applicable to offshore operations in combination with existing codes and standards for hydrogen production, storage and transport. The present assessment can only be seen as a first step outlining a general approach, a conceptual design. It is foreseen that the major effort in establishing a safely operating platform will be to make these components working and communicating on a common platform. Precise task descriptions and clear distribution of responsibilities on‐site are among other important measures to be used for making the platform safe. at this point most components and sections except for the electrolyser units are not advanced to the point to where actual products or suppliers are specified in detail
