Zaragoza has been the city chosen by Enagás to carry out the Hyloop+ project in order to advance research into the transport of green hydrogen through gas pipelines.

The Zaragoza Metrology and Innovation Center is developing this research project with the aim of “enabling a traceability chain in the measurement of renewable hydrogen“says Pedro Rubio, director of Technical Services and Technology at Enagás.

The project, in collaboration with the German National Petrological Institute, promotes research in this field, in addition to comprising a platform for testing of equipment and the construction of a calibration bench for hydrogen flowmeters, with the capacity to operate with mixtures of hydrogen and natural gas in any proportion.

In this way, with Hyloop+, a project that is pioneer in Europe and will be launched in 2025, the aim is to obtain knowledge related to the use of hydrogen in gas installations. It is also intended to have a calibration service for flow meters of this element.

All this will be carried out with the development of a reference system for inclusion in the agreement through which the Spanish Metrology Center recognizes the Zaragoza Metrology and Innovation Center as a collaborating laboratory. This step will enable participation in the network of international intercomparisons of measurement equipment.

The phases of Hyloop+

It all started in 2019 with the help of Enagás due to the need to have more knowledge about the uses of hydrogen in current gas systems.

In a first stage, with the collaboration of the National Hydrogen Center As a technological partner, Hyloop was promoted to develop the engineering for the construction of the test bench.

In mid-2022, the need to incorporate a calibration bench for hydrogen flowmeters was raised. This gave rise to the Hyloop+ project in order to promote the development of a primary reference system supported by the Spanish Metrology Center.

On December 7, 2023, the application for a construction and activity license was submitted to the Zaragoza City Council and its granting is currently in progress. processing phase.

The progress in the project has been announced during the visit of the general director of Energy and Mines of the Government of Aragon, Yolanda Vallés, who has positively valued this initiative to be at the forefront of hydrogen research.
