As one of the largest users of fossil fuel generators, the construction industry must source off-grid, sustainable power solutions to help meet the low-emissions requirements expected of them, while still having access to the huge amounts of power needed to complete their projects.Get in touch See in action
The construction industry is a big user of natural resources and a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. As the climate crisis deepens and the finite nature of these resources is more clearly understood; there is an increasing pressure on the industry to reduce its environmental impact. Anyone operating within this sector will understand the numerous challenges that this presents.
During the early phases of any construction project, access to a grid connection is either unavailable or extremely limited; but the requirement for power is as high as at any other stage.
Increasingly, developers are finding themselves operating within zero and low-emissions zones or tendering for work that requires them to meet environmental targets and standards.
Powering construction sites with diesel generators is a major contributor to highly damaging CO2, NOx, particulate, and watercourse pollution. The use of traditional generators is often restricted and sometimes prohibited entirely.
A number of renewable energy and zero-emission power solutions for the construction industry are being offered including the use of biodiesel and portable renewable solutions with differing levels of effectiveness and reliability.
Our offer provides a truly viable alternative. We deliver reliable, zero-emissions, grid-independent power; ensuring that construction sites have all the power they need, can meet the increasing regulatory requirements, and operate successfully and safely.
The GeoPura Hydrogen Power Unit (HPU) provides 250kVA of standard three-phase, 400V critical electrical power backed up by an integral 216kWh battery system and can effectively replace on-site diesel generators with an emissions-free alternative.
The HPU can be configured to deliver combined heat and power (CHP) at no extra costs, providing hot water and heating for on-site welfare units, sanitary facilities, or other requirements. We can also integrate highspeed EV charging to support zero-emissions travel to and from site or enable electric site vehicles to be charged and used on site.
Any available power provision on-site, such as existing renewables or limited grid availability, can be easily incorporated within the final system and battery backup provides further resilience. Should the hydrogen fuel supply be interrupted at any stage whilst construction is ongoing, the output of the system will be unaffected and can supply power autonomously for several hours.
HPUs convert hydrogen fuel directly into electrical energy. Unlike traditional combustion engines that convert fuel into heat and then mechanical work.
HPUs emit just water and a little heat. Internal combustion engines emit CO2 and pollutants such as NOx and particles.
HPUs have no moving parts and require less maintenance. Integrated 216kWh battery storage provides hours of back-up should a hydrogen supply be interrupted at any stage
