Two leaders in the global green transition, technology pioneer, Topsoe, and green ammonia early-mover, First Ammonia, have announced that they have entered into a capacity reservation agreement to kickstart the global market for green ammonia.
Topsoe’s ground-breaking, energy-efficient solid oxide electrolyser cells (SOEC) will be installed in First Ammonia’s green ammonia plants around the world in the coming years. The agreement provides for an initial purchase of 500 MW of SOEC units and is expandable to up to 5 GW over the life time of the agreement. Topsoe’s SOEC manufacturing plant is to be built in Herning, Denmark, and has recently received final investment decision (FID) from the board.
At 5 GW, this would be the largest ever electrolyser reservation of any type. The production of 5 million tpy of green ammonia produced would eliminate 13 million tpy of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the equivalent of taking 9 million petrol-fuelled cars off the road.
First Ammonia has been developing sites around the globe with the first installation of 500 MW of capacity to be installed at locations in Northern Germany and Southwestern US. These projects will be the world’s first commercial-scale, green ammonia production facilities with operation planned for 2025. First Ammonia will operate all its plants dynamically to support existing renewable power markets.
