Formalised with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Green Hydrogen International and Hydrogen Optimized, the project will incorporate water electrolysis that will support the planned Hydrogen City project.

This significant project is expected to incorporate 60GW’s of green hydrogen production capacity and salt cavern storage in South Texas supporting the growing hydrogen community in the US.

The proposed RuggedCell™ manufacturing facility will be built out in stages, with an ultimate target of 5GW a year of electrolyser production. GHI intends to purchase the facility’s entire output for the first 10 years of operation to supply its Hydrogen City project.

Locations being considered for the factory include the Austin, Houston, Dallas, and Corpus Christi areas.

Brian Maxwell, founder and CEO of Green Hydrogen international, said, “The RuggedCell™ design is the ideal solution for large-scale hydrogen projects like Hydrogen City.

“Andrew Stuart and his team at Hydrogen Optimized have unmatched experience and technology expertise in green hydrogen production, and we’re proud to be working with them to develop the world’s largest green hydrogen production and storage hub in Texas.”

Andrew T. B. Stuart, President and CEO of Hydrogen Optimized, said, “We look forward to working with Brian and his team at GHI in supplying Hydrogen City with RuggedCell™ electrolysers.

“We’re particularly excited to explore GHI’s plan to store green hydrogen in salt caverns, an approach that inherently recognises the need to produce and store green hydrogen on a massive scale to unlock a region’s renewable energy potential and drive the transition to clean energy.”
