Announced today (May 12), the China based company will provide its water electrolysis equipment with a four to one electrolyser, gas-liquid separation system, which LONGi claims can achieve 4000Nm3/h of hydrogen production.  

LONGi says its system is designed to achieve high density, low power consumption and small footprint. The company hopes that its alkaline electrolyser will reach 1.5GW capacity by the end of 2022, and 5GW before 2026. 

The Sinopec Green Hydrogen Demonstration Project is part of Sinopec’s pledge to support China’s carbon goals and pursue green, low-carbon development, to promote a green hydrogen industry chain in the region.  

The project will see a new photovoltaic power station with a capacity of 300MW and annual power generation of 618 million kilowatt-hours, to power an electrolysed water hydrogen plant with capacity of 20,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year. 

The project is hoped to be completed and put into operation in June 2023, with goals of reducing 485,000 tonnes of CO2 emission per year to help China’s oil and gas industry achieve emissions and decarbonisation targets.
