The agreement outlines terms for hydrogen supply from the first stage of Everfuel’s HySynergy Phase II Power-to-X (PtX) facility in Frederica, Denmark, with the intention of cleaning up Crossbridge Energy’s refinery operations, making an important step towards scaling electrolyser capacity to 300MW,

Planned to be operational in 2025, the second phase of HySynergy is hoped to reduce 500,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from the mobility sector and industry, accounting for approximately 11% of the Denmark’s annual land-based transport sector’s emissions, H2 View understands.

Under the agreement, the partners have set out the commercial terms for the initial stage of the facility, which is set to be developed in three stages, A, B and C, each offering 100MW of electrolysis capacity.

Developments of stage A are anticipated to have a production capacity of up to 40 tonnes of green hydrogen per day, which the company says will be used at Crossbridge Energy’s refinery for ‘more sustainable’ fuel production, as well as a zero-emission fuel for mobility and industry.

Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, said, ”The long-term agreement on commercial terms with Crossbridge Energy is an important enabler for the HySynergy Phase II development project.

“We share a strong partnership and are eager to continue our collaboration on building a large-scale PtX facility as a game changer for the energy transition in Denmark.

“Before that, we of course look forward to starting operations of the Phase I electrolyser facility later this year and deliver the first green hydrogen to our partners and our stations.”

Phase I of the development, announced in February 2021, saw plans for Everfuel to develop 20MW of electrolyser capacity at the Frederica site, and is expected to be operational in the summer of 2022.

Finn Shcousboe, CEO of Crossbridge Energy, commented, “Hydrogen is the key to unlocking the full potential of green fuels. With Crossbridge Energy’s refinery and the Everfuel’s HySynergy project, we are taking a great leap forward towards more sustainable fuels.

“Initially, we will replace hydrogen based on fossil fuels with green hydrogen at our refinery, but we are also starting the next step of the Danish PtX journey.”
