Fichtner Hydrogen Solutions – the entire value chain from one source

We believe that hydrogen can play a key role in the decarbonization of the world. Therefore, we are actively contributing to the development of the hydrogen economy. Fichtner has more than three decades of experience in the hydrogen sector. With this know-how, our team of engineers and consultants can support clients in every aspect of the hydrogen value chain:

  • Business Models and Policy ConsultingBusiness Models and Policy Consulting

    Business Models and Policy Consulting

    Our clients from many industries are looking for ways to develop successful business models in the fast-growing hydrogen sector. With their market know-how and strong technical background, our team of consultants and engineers develops strategies for clients looking to successfully master the transformation of their sector. Furthermore, we advise decisionmakers on national strategies for the decarbonization of their economies.

    Current project examples are:

    • Hydrogen business model development for a company in the natural gas secto
    • Advisory service for a country regarding a national hydrogen strategys

  • System PlanningSystem Planning

    System Planning

    System analysis is a key element in finding the right solutions for the challenges of transforming a country’s energy supply or designing a plant. Using advanced modelling tools, our teams identify the least cost approaches for the decarbonization of entire energy systems. Our modelling know-how is also applied to sizing of plants, e.g. the dimensioning of power-to-gas plants depending on the operating strategy.

    Current project examples are:

    • Storage concept for a power-to-gas plant
    • Development of a concept for 100% renewable energy supply of a state using sector couplin

  • Hydrogen Plant DesignHydrogen Plant Design

    Hydrogen Plant Design

    Fichtner has carried out a large number of engineering projects in the implementation of hydrogen installations. We have covered all phases from pre-feasibility to detail engineering and construction supervision. Our engineering teams are capable to cover all disciplines. Thus, we can offer clients the planning and implementation of their project from a single source.

    Current projects are:

    • Engineering of an electrolysis plant (including process, control system, electrical and civil lots)
    • Engineering and project implementation support of a test bench for the Ariane 6 hydrogen / oxygen upper stage

  • Hydrogen InfrastructureHydrogen Infrastructure

    Hydrogen Infrastructure

    The use of the natural gas grid for the transport of hydrogen is being discussed in many countries. National strategies and plans are being developed to ensure that the existing gas grids can be used for the transition of energy systems to low carbon footprints. This presents grid operators with the challenge to upgrade their existing assets for the use of hydrogen / natural gas mixtures or pure hydrogen transport. Our team of experienced natural gas pipeline engineers and our hydrogen experts support clients in the process of making their installations hydrogen ready.

    Current project examples are:

    • Design of a hydrogen pipeline system
    • Grid extension planning considering hydrogen requirements for a distribution grid operator
