Decarbonised hydrogen

Hydrogen is an important tool in the decarbonisation of industry... provided that this hydrogen is produced in a sustainable manner.


ERAS ensures the engineering of all trades and the project management of your hydrogen projects:
•    Feasibility study
•    Design studies
•    Industrial risk analysis
•    Permitting and administrative files (ICPE: installation classified for the environment, ATEX: explosive atmosphere)
•    Consultation of companies
•    Detail study
•    Site scheduling, planning and coordination
•    Acceptance and performance improvement


Equans France's teams will carry out your projects, managing the industrial risk and integration into your processes:
•    Electricity Instrumentation Automation
•    Piping, purification, compression and storage
•    Distribution, regulation and process integration
•    Industrial computing and digital tools


With its local teams, Equans France maintains the reliability and security of your installations with service commitments on level 1 to 4 maintenance.

Principe de la production d'hydrogène par électrolyse de l'eau

Principle of hydrogen production by water electrolysis

Hydrogen: a vector for industrial decarbonisation

Most hydrogen is produced by steam methane cracking. But this process emits a lot of greenhouse gases (GHGs): approximately 10 t of CO2 for every 1 t of H2 produced.

New technologies that emit few GHGs have matured. Electrolysis of water, in particular, can be used to produce low-carbon or renewable hydrogen and oxygen from water molecules and electricity.
