Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions (ESS) has commenced relocating its hydrogen energy production site from Yokohama complex, Yokohama City to Hamakawasaki operations in the Ukishima area, Kawasaki City in Japan.

With the relocation of the facility, the firm expects the possibilities of further increase in the production capacity of its hydrogen energy business.

Toshiba ESS’s Hydrogen energy products that include fuel cell stack, H2One and H2Rex are produced at new facility.

Fuel cell stack is an integrated core technology based on many years of its experiences, H2One, is a CO2 free hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system and H2Rex, is a hydrogen fuel cell power generation system.

Hydrogen supplied from nearby pipeline can be used for inspections and experiments

The facility utilises the firm’s advanced production technology, and a streamlined production line to reduce the production cost.

The hydrogen that will be supplied from the pipeline installed nearby area is expected to be used for inspections and experiments to reduce the production cost.

Toshiba ESS Hydrogen Energy Business Division general manager Yoshihisa Sanagi said: “with the development and deployment of Hydrogen Energy technology, Toshiba ESS will further contribute to the growth and maturation of renewable energy all around the world.”

The firm said that it has already delivered more than 120 units of pure hydrogen fuel cell system, H2Rex to wholesale markets, hotels, convenience stores, and sports facilities.

In October last year, it has also signed a partnership agreement with More Hydrogen Energy Technology for the development of fuel cell systems.

In April this year, Toshiba ESS has secured a contract from Toyota Tsusho to deliver power generation equipment for the Sedawgyi hydropower plant rehabilitation project in Myanmar.
