Hydra600

Scalable bulk rectifier for green hydrogen production

Working together with trusted partners, we developed the Hydra600 rectifier cabinet, featuring our own unique power converter technology. This provides an efficient and scalable solution for electrolyzer manufacturers that is easily integrated and can be scaled up as a repeatable unit up to GW-scale capacity.

Uniquely, the rectifier cabinet design has been optimized in entirety for the electrolysis of water using proven Prodrive Technologies power modules.

Silicon Carbide-based converters improve efficiency, as well as AC and DC current quality, without the need for external filters. The input can be connected to any medium-voltage AC grid. The output supplies the DC voltage and current that the OEM or stack builder requires for their specific stack design. The Hydra600 is designed to inherently comply with grid codes, so external filters and compensation banks for incoming current are not needed.

The Hydra600 rectifier cabinets can be integrated into a containerized solution or on a skid, depending on customer requirements. The solution includes its own standalone liquid cooling system. The integrated solution is designed to maximize uptime by minimizing maintenance. This allows green power to be utilized 24/7,whenever it is available and reducing ongoing costs compared to air-cooled solutions.
