Case Study: Charging Electric Plant

Curious to know what hydrogen deployment metrics look like?

We have created a hypothetical scenario to demonstrate the requirements and benefits of replacing a diesel generator with hydrogen.

Job Details

Characteristics: Versatile, can power multiple types of electric plant over construction phase.

Typical Generator Size: 200kVA

Job Length: 180 Days

What Will Be Powered: Electric wheel loader (40kW), electric pile driver (396kW) and electric compact excavator (16kW)

Running Hours (Weekly): 36

Job Scenario

Recharging electric plant machinery, on-site, after a full days of operations (5 - 8 hours) with a hydrogen generator compared to using a diesel generator.

Job Requirements (Weekly)

4.8 Recharges (Wheel Loader): 180kWh

4.8 Recharges (Excavator): 104kWh

4.8 Recharges (Pile Driver): 9,648kWh

Diesel Comparison (Weekly)
