Green Hydrogen Systems electrolysers chosen for a pioneering green hydrogen production project in Germany
Green Hydrogen Systems, a leading provider of efficient pressurised alkaline electrolysers used in onsite hydrogen production based on renewable electricity, has today signed a supply agreement with Wenger Engineering for delivering electrolyser units for green hydrogen production project in Germany. Following this supply agreement, the parties will enter into a mandatory service agreement.
The order includes the supply of three GHS HyProvide™ A90 electrolysers with a combined capacity of ~1,3 MW for the production of green hydrogen from renewable electricity. Powered onsite by wind turbines, the HyProvide™ units will be deployed in a 20, and 40 ft container at an electrolyser test field in Bremerhaven, Germany.
The project is led by Wenger Engineering, an independent R&D company for thermodynamics, renewable energy and hydrogen technology. Green Hydrogen Systems will be responsible for delivering the electrolyser units and will support the project with on-site maintenance and remote monitoring and support as part of a three-year service agreement.
The complete test field led by Wenger Engineering will consist of pressurised alkaline electrolysis equipment from Green Hydrogen Systems, PEM electrolyser, compression unit, storage system and fuel cells. The test fields’ purpose is to systematically compare the effectiveness of those two different technologies. The electrolysers will also be connected to a virtual electricity network to determine what stabilising effects the connection of multiple decentralised generation units has on the grid.
Another part of the project will test applications in the logistics and transport sector as well as the food industry. The test results from the test field and operational experience should pave the way for larger-scale hydrogen applications in the future.
“With Germany announcing its ambitious National Hydrogen Strategy, the country has a potential to become a global leader in the associated green hydrogen technologies. And we at Green Hydrogen Systems are thrilled to be selected by a partner like Wenger Engineering who possess the crucial market knowledge and share our vision to pioneer the field of green hydrogen and drive a sustainable global energy transition,” says Søren Rydbirk, CCO of Green Hydrogen Systems.
“We have scoured the electrolysis market, and concluded that Green Hydrogen Systems was the clear leader in the pressurised alkaline electrolysis. The test field is a major opportunity for Green Hydrogen Systems to demonstrate their technology and showcase its effectiveness. The insights from this project will not only have a significant scaling effect on the hydrogen economy in Germany, but the results can potentially be valuable for all of Europe’s green energy transition,” says David Wenger, CEO of Wenger Engineering.
Green Hydrogen Systems is delivering electrolysers to numerous projects in Europe and most recently also in Australia. In June 2021, Green Hydrogen Systems raised DKK 1,100 million in the company’s initial public offering on Nasdaq Copenhagen. The net proceeds from the offering are planned to be used for expanding the company’s production facilities, technological advancement of the electrolysis equipment and expanding the organisation.
