Orlen's HySparK Project Earns Prestigious Certifications

Poland's energy giant, Orlen, has received significant recognition for its HySparK project, securing two prestigious certifications. The project, focusing on hydrogen production and storage, has been awarded the TÜV SÜD certificate for its compliance with international safety and quality standards. Additionally, it has received the CertifHy label, marking it as a producer of green hydrogen, a crucial step in the transition towards sustainable energy solutions.

The HySparK project is a cornerstone of Orlen's strategy to enhance Poland's energy security and reduce carbon emissions. The initiative aligns with the European Union's hydrogen strategy, which aims to make the EU climate-neutral by 2050. Orlen's investment in hydrogen technology underscores its commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility.

TÜV SÜD's certification highlights the project's adherence to rigorous safety protocols, ensuring the safe production and storage of hydrogen. This certification is essential for gaining the trust of stakeholders and the public, given the potential risks associated with hydrogen technology.

The CertifHy label is particularly noteworthy as it designates the hydrogen produced by HySparK as green, meaning it is generated from renewable energy sources. This aligns with global efforts to promote clean energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Orlen's achievement with HySparK positions it as a leader in the hydrogen sector within Central and Eastern Europe.

Orlen's CEO, Daniel Obajtek, expressed pride in the HySparK project's achievements, emphasizing the importance of hydrogen in the company's long-term strategy. He noted that these certifications validate Orlen's efforts to lead in sustainable energy and contribute to global climate goals.
