In June 2019, BDR Thermea Group started field testing the world’s first hydrogen-powered domestic boiler in Rozenburg, in the Dutch province of South Holland. This groundbreaking boiler burns pure green hydrogen to heat water and homes without releasing CO2. In this pilot, a converted natural gas pipeline carries the green hydrogen produced on site to the boiler room in the apartment building.
A recent scheduled maintenance visit found that the 100% hydrogen boiler is still in excellent condition, having operated continuously and without any issues or loss of capacity since installation.
“We’re immensely proud that our hydrogen boiler is in such good condition, working exactly like it did when we installed it. This is the perfect result for us,” says Andrea Manini, Head of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program at BDR Thermea Group.
