Easy. When You Know How.
We are delighted to announce Valcon International as a member of the Scottish Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA). Membership of SHFCA helps us to be recognised as part of growing hydrogen economy and to establish connections across the wide SHFCA membership platform.
Valcon commence works on process simulations and control optimisation for Engie Cycofos Combined Cycle project
Best wishes for 2024 to all
November 2023 - We are proud to announce that Valcon International s.r.o. have become Enapter Certified Partner. Valcon incorporate Enapter equipment in their complex hydrogen solutions that include water treatment, hydrogen production, compression and storage.
Valcon International can now provide hydrogen solutions ranging from 0.5 up to 210 Nm3/h of hydrogen with prospects of increased production in near future.
AEM electrolyzer technology that we are using has great advantages - namely higher current density, thus efficiency and lower requirements on inlet water purity.
November 2023 - Valcon is successfully closing H2 Projects Grant of Country for the Future program, which has been granted to our company to support developing of hydrogen projects for 2023
November 2023 - We are specifying 3 variants of the gas booster for our modular electrolyser installed in Research Laboratory at Czech Technical University.
The parameters of hydrogen booster:
Maximum pressure - 450 bar
Normal operating pressure - 280 bar / 7 bar (air drive pressure)
Minimal pressure of input hydrogen - less than 20 bar
Operating pressure of control air - 1 to 7 bar
Operating flow - 10 Nm3/h (input pressure 20 - 170 bar)
November 2023 - Valcon's mini mission to Ukraine has been successfully completed.
Our meetings included Business forum at the Ukrainian Hydrogen Council; very fruitful technical sessions with Ukrhydroenergo - Ukraine's owner and operator of major hydroelectric power stations, including the misfortunate Khakhovskaya; informal meetings with the Czech diplomatic misison in Ukraine; discussions of thermal power plant reconstructions with UDP Renewables and meeting with the UA's deputy Minister for European Integration of Energy of Ukraine and his team Mr. Yaroslav Demchenkov.
We have presented our hydrogen technologies, hydrogen projects as well as our activities in power industry in general.
Many contacts were established and re-established and we hope in our mutual cooperation in the future.
September 2023 - Our modular electrolyser performance data results - time x outlet flow characteristics - our 10 kW electrolyser unit is on full flow production within 18 minutes, we are storing the produced hydrogen in industrial type bottle and production switches automatically off when limit pressure is reached. Below are - production time trend, pressure time trend and voltage-current characteristics. Total production is 2 Nm3/h.
August 2023 - Valcon International s.r.o. electrolyser up
and producing - see the construction progress video sequence
July 2023 - Valcon International s.r.o installs extension of hydrogen fuel cell and electrolyser at the Czech Technical University. The capacity is increased from 0.5 Nm3/h to 2 Nm3/h. The unit is additionally fitted with a new control and data acquisition system, safety system with independent SIL 3 ready safety chain, 2 hydrogen leak detection sensors and power consumption and production (on the fuel cell side) electric power meters. We are using our design data and previous test results, some of them were posted here earlier. An intensive test schedule is ahead of us and we are expecting results in early autumn. We will report on the progress.
