Magnum’s domal salt caverns provide the ideal environment for bulk storage of Hydrogen gas safely and economically for a range of utility, industrial and commercial purposes. The caverns are purpose built, provide a sturdy impermeable container that will not leak and will operate for decades .
Green Hydrogen, for example, can be produced using wind and solar power that would otherwise be curtailed, stored underground, and then drawn upon to help meet power needs during times of peak demand. Salt caverns can store enough Green Hydrogen to shift spring surplus to summer peaks and/or fail surplus to winter loads. Alternatively, It can be stored for later distribution to hydrogen markets for manufacturing or transportation.
Salt caverns such as Magnum’s are a proven technology for hydrogen storage and have been used safely for this purpose in the U.S. since the 1980s. They provide the opportunity for storage of significantly greater volumes than would be practical in above ground tanks and at significantly lower cost.
