The plant, which is set to be constructed in Herning, Denmark, will be operational by 2024, with its capacity scalable to 5GW per year, contributing to the European wide push towards renewable hydrogen use.
H2 View understands the proposed 23,000m2 plant will produce solid oxide electrolyser cells (SOEC) electrolysers with construction is planned to commence in the second half of this year.
Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe, said, “We are willing and able to support society’s green ambitions and the need to accelerate the energy transition, and we have the technology to do it.
“With our new electrolyser production plant, we lead the way in speeding up commercial-size Power-to-X solutions, and we do it with our highly innovative technology that outmatches technologies currently in the market.”
Topsoe’s announcement comes at the same time as an agreement between President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen and state leaders from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium, which will see the parties invest in a ten-fold capacity increase of offshore wind power by 2050.
“The agreement between the EU Commission and the four North Sea countries is an important step in the transition to renewable energy,” said Baan
In January this year, the company revealed it has inked a €45m ($47.4m) loan agreement to research hydrogen technologies.
