Global Hydrogen Review,


Electric Hydrogen, a manufacturer of advanced, industrial-scale hydrogen electrolyser technology, and New Fortress Energy (NFE) have announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement for supply of Electric Hydrogen's 100 MW electrolyser system to NFE’s green hydrogen project in Texas, US.

Expected to be one of the largest in North America, the facility will be enabled by Electric Hydrogen's advanced electrolysis technology, capable of producing nearly 50 tpd of green hydrogen. First hydrogen production is expected in the Q424 with full commercial operation in 2025. The site and facility is scalable to 200 MW in the future.

Electric Hydorgen manufactures turnkey 100 MW electrolysis systems, including innovative electrolysis stacks with efficiency that can match the variability of renewable energy production with precision. The modular plant architecture significantly reduces on-site construction costs and complexity.

The electrolyser stacks are being manufactured at the company's facility in Devens, Massachusetts, US, while balance-of-plant modules are being fabricated in Texas. Announced in May 2023, the high-rate production facility in Massachusetts is on schedule to produce up to 1.2 GW of electrolyser stacks annually.

Wes Edens, Chairman and CEO of NFE, said: “We are excited to enter into this agreement with Electric Hydrogen, a pioneer in electrolysis technology that shares our vision of enabling clean, abundant, and low-cost hydrogen to accelerate the energy transition around the world. We are focused on developing scalable solutions that have a real impact on decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors of the global economy."

Raffi Garabedian, Electric Hydrogen's CEO and Co-founder, said: "We are thrilled to partner with NFE on this large-scale green hydrogen project. Together, we believe in our ability to accelerate green hydrogen towards fossil-parity, enabling industrial sectors to meaningfully reduce their emissions by the end of this decade. Our shared vision can only be realised by building green hydrogen plants at large scale and low cost, which is enabled by our technology and which this project will demonstrate."
