Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, accounting for about three quarters of the mass. Hydrogen exists in water which covering 70% of the earth's surface, and also exists in organic matter. The energy generated by hydrogen is 2-3 times higher than most other common fuels. It is also easy to react with oxygen, releasing a large amount of energy in the form of heat. Therefore, hydrogen energy has also become one of the core energy sources for carbon reduction in the future. The use of hydrogen is mainly in industry, namely: oil refining, ammonia production, methanol production and steel production. Almost all hydrogen is provided by fossil fuels, so clean hydrogen has great potential for emission reduction.
At the same time in the North Sea and other large offshore wind farms, the potential for green hydrogen production is huge. Some pioneers have begun to try to build offshore hydrogen platforms the platforms including hydrogen production equipment, the electrolysis device and transformer required for the transformation of offshore wind power, and a set of seawater desalination device to produce ultra-pure water required for electrolysis.
Therefore, Newey has invested a lot of basic research in hydrogen technology valves, and has successfully become became one of the first manufacturers to have breakthrough in liquid hydrogen ultra-low cryogenic temperature -253°C valves, and has deeply participated in the formulation of national standards, also provided technical selection guidance for overseas market customers many times. At present，although the production cost and the storage risk is high, but with the development of technology, it is bound to become an important development trend in the future.
