Formalised with the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI), the company will deploy the RuggedCell water electrolyser technology to create low costing hydrogen that also can be scaled to meet rising demands for hydrogen.

The LOI provides for high current unipolar RuggedCell(TM) systems to be deployed at one or more sites by the company, which plans to roll out hundreds of megawatts of electrolyser capacity over time.

Andrew Stuart, President and CEO of Hydrogen Optimized, said, “The signing of this LOI is a significant step forward in our commercialisation process.

“A key factor underlying the agreement is our system’s unique capability to double or more in capacity without requiring the installation of costly additional electrical and other equipment.”

“More and more potential clients tell us they are looking for a water electrolysis system that can be economically deployed in the tens of megawatts and can be expanded at a relatively low incremental cost as the MW rating of the project grows.

“The RuggedCell system makes this possible as it requires fewer power conditioning units to accommodate expansion. This contrasts with small module systems that must be fully replicated to increase output, and therefore cannot gain economies of scale.”

Thanks for giving H2 View your time. Tell us a little about Hydrogen Optimized…

Hydrogen Optimized was founded three years ago to advance large-scale green hydrogen production. We address the large end of the marketplace through our high current RUGGEDCELL™ water electrolysis technology. We recognized that there appeared to be a void in the market for a truly large-scale technology which can meet the need for 100s of MW production modules versus 10s of MWs.

Our approach is highly reliable industrial hydrogen generators which can obtain the economies of scale which the replication of smaller modules cannot. Every aspect of our design and approach is to ensure that we have an inherent low capital cost design and the $/MW of a project continuously reduces as the MW of the project scope increases. In addition, the RuggedCell™ design enables the use of low cost, scalable manufacturing technologies. Our focus is both a highly efficient and cost-effective water electrolysis solution as well as a solution that can be mass manufactured.
