中国石化新闻网讯 据烃加工网9月15日报道，西门子智能基础设施公司（Siemens Smart Infrastructure）与壳牌全球解决方案国际公司签署谅解备忘录，以合作开发低碳和高效的能源解决方案，支持能源转型。该协议将重点关注为壳牌及其客户的工业应用生产绿色氢的项目，以及加强在生物燃料和循环化学领域的合作。根据该谅解备忘录，西门子和壳牌将创建提高能源效率和产生可持续电力的解决方案，包括但不限于数字化、高效网络以及绿色氢的生产、分销和应用。与西门子电气化和自动化业务部门签署的合作伙伴关系有可能加强双方的协同效应。西门子打算与壳牌合作，加速壳牌向净零运营的过渡，而壳牌则寻求向西门子及其附属公司提供低碳产品，在整个供应链、西门子的运营和西门子产品的使用阶段减少排放，包括但不限于生物燃料的供应。
该谅解备忘录源于这种关系以及两者自2010年以来在多个项目上的合作。推进绿色氢能的关键里程碑之一是最近宣布在鹿特丹Maasvlakte建设壳牌的荷兰氢 1 (HH1) 项目。日产能为200兆瓦和60吨氢气的HH1项目，计划成为世界上最大的绿色氢气生产工厂之一，也是欧洲最大的。作为配电和变电站自动化供应商，西门子的电气化和自动化业务在项目的规划、建设和执行中发挥着重要作用。其还将通过一份服务合同参与该工厂的运营，该工厂计划于2025年投产。该工厂将利用北海风力涡轮机产生的电力生产氢气。

Siemens and Shell sign MoU to advance low-carbon, highly efficient energy solutions
Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Shell Global Solutions International BV have signed an MoU to collaborate on developing low-carbon and highly efficient energy solutions that support the energy transition. The agreement will focus on projects that produce green hydrogen for industrial applications at Shell and its customers, as well as enhancing collaboration in the areas of biofuels and circular chemistry. Under the MoU, Siemens and Shell will create solutions that increase energy efficiency and generate sustainable power, consisting of, but not limited to, digitalization, efficient networks, and the production, distribution, and application of green hydrogen. The partnership, inked with Siemens’ Electrification and Automation business unit, has the potential to strengthen synergies for both parties. While Siemens intends to work with Shell to accelerate the latter’s transition towards net-zero operations, Shell seeks to supply Siemens and its affiliates with low carbon products that reduce emissions across the supply chain, in Siemens’ operations, and in the use phase of Siemens products, consisting of but not limited to supply of biofuels.
“Siemens is committed to decoupling electrification from fossil fuel resources. Partnerships are key to driving this effort and transitioning towards sustainable energy supplies,” said Stephan May, CEO of Electrification and Automation at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “The partnership with Shell fits perfectly with Siemens’ vision of electrifying the world, while helping industry and infrastructure customers reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their sustainability goals.”
Siemens has been an electrical equipment – switchgears, pumps, transformers, electrical Scada - supplier to Shell for more than a decade. Over the past years, it has evolved into a collaborative solutions supplier, spanning the full range of its electrification and automation portfolio and further enhanced by Joint Industry Program 33 (JIP33) equipment standardization, a set of standardized industry procurement specifications for the oil and gas industry. Shell attaches great importance to the relationship with Siemens, which is paving the way to accelerating the energy transition.
“Deep collaboration with partners is essential for the delivery of low-carbon energy solutions for the future. Building on our existing relation with Siemens, I expect this MoU to enable our teams to work even closer together,” said Graham Henley, Senior Vice President Engineering & Project Capability at Shell. “Siemens’ broad range of expertise in electrification and automation, together with Shell’s engineering and project delivery capability and ambition in the energy transition will prove to be a powerful combination.”
The MoU stems from this relationship and from working together on several projects since 2010. One of the key milestones advancing green hydrogen is the recently announced construction of Shell’s Holland Hydrogen 1 (HH1) project on the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam. With a capacity of 200 megawatts and 60 tons of hydrogen per day, HH1 is planned to be one of the largest green hydrogen production plants in the world and the biggest in Europe. Siemens’ Electrification and Automation business plays an important role in the project’s planning, construction, and execution, as the power distribution and substation automation supplier. It will also be involved in the operation of the plant, which is scheduled to go on-line in 2025, through a servicing contract. The plant will produce hydrogen using electricity generated by wind turbines in the North Sea.
Siemens and Shell have adopted a collaborative and agile way of working on this large project. Close consultation and decision-making on a daily basis have helped reduce development time – of the design of the power distribution system - by close to half, from 18 months to 9 months.
