Clear100+ includes a 100MW green hydrogen plant that integrates John Cockerill Hydrogen’s pressurised alkaline electrolyser stacks with process treatment units, pre-assembled for installation.

H2 View understands Clear100+ will guarantee hydrogen flow at 1,800kg/hr; hydrogen purity after purification of 99.97%; a start-up time of 15 minutes; plant efficiency (at peak load) of 51.7kWhr/kg; 96% plant availability; a design life of 25 years; pre-FID lead time within five months; and an EPC lead time of 29 to 31 months.

“With this 100MW green hydrogen product, we provide the market with a solution that is quick to implement, reliable, safe, configurable and, overall, that will contribute to making green hydrogen affordable,” explained Damien Eyriès, CEO of Rely.

He added that by combining both Technip and JC’s expertise in engineering and alkaline technologies, Rely will be a unique player offering its customers “an integrated solution, guaranteeing simultaneously high performance and permanent access to the most innovative technologies.”

Speaking to H2 View last year, Raphael Tilot, CEO John Cockerill Hydrogen, claimed that Rely will continue to work with the Belgian-based player.

“We will be linked in certain areas,” he said, “such as electrolyser agreements, as there is a shared concern that there will be a bottleneck in the market, and securing enough volume of electrolysers is critical – and also with innovation, with some shared resources to work together on specific innovations.”
