TransHyDE at the Hannover Messe 2024

This year's HANNOVER MESSE proved to be a centre of innovative technologies and pioneering developments in the field of energy transition. Yesterday our colleague, Barbara Mai, had the pleasure of meeting the team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) at the TransHyDE stand in Hall 13, Stand C03.

LOHC Tanks and TransHyDE "Helgoland"

The atmosphere was characterised by a lively exchange and many interesting discussions about the future of hydrogen technologies. It was particularly inspiring to talk to Dr Andrea Deissenberger and Amelie Knape, who are significantly involved in the research and development of adhesives, sealants and barrier coatings for hydrogen and LOHC tanks.

The TransHyDE project "Helgoland", which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, was at the centre of many discussions. The challenges and opportunities associated with the safe and efficient use of hydrogen were discussed in depth.

Innovative solutions were presented at the stand, including adhesive bonding processes for integrating sensors to monitor the pressure of hydrogen tanks. Alternative materials such as fibre composites are also being researched in order to reduce weight and increase efficiency.

Hydrogen barrier coatings at H2Giga

Another focus is on the development of hydrogen barrier coatings that reduce the permeability of hydrogen and thus increase safety. Anastasia Molchanova from H2Giga was also on site and presented exciting insights into other hydrogen lead projects such as H2Mare. Visitors had the opportunity to find out all about the latest developments and innovations in the field of hydrogen technologies.

We would like to thank everyone involved for the inspiring dialogue and are delighted with the innovative approaches to the energy transition that we were able to see. See you next year!
