Plug cryogenic trailers leave Tennessee plant for customer deliveries

Global Hydrogen Review,

Plug Power Inc. announces that Plug cryogenic trailers filled with liquid hydrogen are being deployed from its recently commissioned Tennessee hydrogen production plant for customer deliveries. The achievement comes two days following the official commencement of operations at the Charleston, US, production plant and is already servicing east coast pedestal customers, including Walmart, Home Depot and others.

The Tennessee plant adds about 10 tpd of liquid hydrogen supply back onto the US market, servicing Plug customers in material handling operations, fuel cell electric vehicle fleets, and stationary power applications. Plug also implemented design improvements in Tennessee to enhance overall plant efficiency and bring down the average cost of delivered hydrogen, impacting Plug’s fuel cost margins. With this, Plug can now provide about 50% of our customers’ requirements from these two facilities alone.

Plug has been active in commissioning its network of hydrogen plants in 2024. In addition to the 10 tpd plant in Tennessee, Plug began production of liquid green hydrogen at its Georgia plant on 23 January 2024. At 15 tpd, this is the largest liquid green hydrogen plant in the US market, and largest PEM electrolyser deployment operating in the US. Between Georgia and Tennessee, Plug now has about 25 tpd of liquid hydrogen production capacity, further enhancing the overall generation network in the US.

“Plug is deploying hydrogen production plants at a pace and scale unmatched by others in our sector,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power. “Unlike anyone else in the industry, Plug’s energy business spans cryogenic equipment, liquefaction, hydrogen and electrolysers. Proving the viability of these solutions, a goal previously only within the reach of traditional industrial gas companies, signals a new era for the hydrogen industry, led by Plug.”

The company’s advanced cryogenic and liquefaction capabilities are integral to its operations, allowing the green hydrogen to be safely and efficiently transported to customers. Plug’s liquid hydrogen tankers can transport up to 80 000 lbs per maximum gross vehicle weight. It takes approximately eight gas tube trailers to deliver the same amount of gaseous hydrogen as one liquid hydrogen tanker.
