Scheduled for delivery in the second to third quarter of 2024, the liquefiers will serve TC Energy’s facilities in North America which are yet to be built.

In 2021, TC Energy partnered with Nikola Corporation to help develop a number of large-scale hydrogen production facilities in the US and Canada.

“TC Energy is advancing decarbonisation solutions across Canada and the US,” said Corey Hessen Executive Vice-President and President, Power & Energy Solutions. “Securing long-lead equipment and systems gives us a head start as we move to finalise sites for hydrogen production and distribution hubs.”

Using a hydrogen refrigeration cycle, the Plug liquefiers will put hydrogen into its liquid state, offering higher energy density compared to gaseous hydrogen, making it easier to transport, and use in some cases.

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, commented, “As a leader in manufacturing reliable hydrogen liquefiers, Plug is focused on optimising both capital and operational efficiency for our customers at every stage of the hydrogen value chain.”

Plug Power gained its core competency in liquefaction systems through the acquisition of Joule Processing LLC last year (2022).

“This deal validates our investment in Plug’s liquefaction capabilities as part of our vision to build an end-to-end green hydrogen solution. We share TC Energy’s commitment to providing sustainable and secure energy, and together we look forward to accelerating the growth of the hydrogen market,” Marsh added.
