The electrolyser system, totaling 1GW, will be utilised within a green hydrogen production complex, with a capacity of 100,00 metric tonnes per year, for use in northern Europe’s transportation sector.
This is a major development for not only Plug Power but the wider hydrogen economy with vast quantities of hydrogen set to be generated for vehicles.
The ripple effect could see a wider adoption of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, a quicker rollout of infrastructure, and more.
Through its joint venture with Hyundai, H2 Energy will supply fleets of heavy-duty fuel cell trucks.
In addition, earlier this year, H2 Energy entered a joint venture with Phillips 66 to build more than 250 hydrogen refuelling stations in Denmark, Germany and Austria supplied with green hydrogen from H2 Energy.
Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, said, “We see green hydrogen as the future and have made significant investments in green hydrogen including in the construction of a gigafactory for electrolyser production.
“Our operational readiness and manufacturing capacity were key determinants in our selection for the world’s largest order to date, and we are pleased to be a part of this project with H2 Energy.”
Rolf Huber, founder and CEO of H2 Energy, commented, “Plug Power’s unique knowledge and market position within the green hydrogen ecosystem made our choice of collaboration very easy.
“We have the same ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions and create a world where hydrogen is the future of energy.”
