Biga Hydrogen selects Stargate Hydrogen's stack technology

Biga Hydrogen GmbH and STARGATE Hydrogen Solutions OÜ have signed a collaboration agreement for the supply of electrolyser stacks.

The first purchase order dedicated to an upcoming green hydrogen project in Turkey was also placed.

The first part of the project marks the beginning of the strategic collaboration between the two companies. Stargate Hydrogen's Stellar100 stack will be integrated into Biga's innovative system, which will be operational in a turn-key electrolysis plant with 100 m3/h capacity to be built in the industrial zone of Manisa, Turkey.

The second phase aims for scaling up the project to a 1000 Nm3/h hydrogen production system where Biga Hydrogen will integrate several Generation 2 stacks for an industrial decarbonisation project. The Generation 2 stacks, developed and patented by Stargate Hydrogen, are based on novel ceramic catalyst materials with leading efficiency and performance.

Biga Hydrogen plans to build modular 1000 m3/h units to be deployed on a large scale: the first units are to be installed in Turkey’s Aegean Hydrogen Corridor, spanning the cities of Manisa and Izmir. It will demonstrate the financial viability of industrial decarbonisation by integrating hydrogen into industrial heating, waste heat recovery, back-up power generation, freight transport mobility, ammonia and methanol synthesis in industrial areas, and increasing the efficiency of energy generation, utilisation, storage and transmission. The first unit is scheduled to go into operation in 3Q25, followed by rapid deployment from 2026.

Commenting on the hydrogen project collaboration, Dr. Christian Postberg, CEO from Biga Hydrogen, said: “We are delighted to have found an innovative supplier for our pilot project in Stargate Hydrogen and cannot wait to integrate the stack in our system. We are convinced that this will mark the beginning of a long lasting collaboration.”

Marko Virkebau, Stargate Hydrogen CEO, added: “It's a privilege to see Stargate Hydrogen's technology chosen by Biga Hydrogen for their ambitious green hydrogen projects. We have already commissioned activities for the first project and in parallel working on future solutions for larger projects. At Stargate, we enjoy working with partners who are focused on getting hardware on the ground and can scale up quickly, Biga Hydrogen is clearly one of such partners.”
