Electric Hydrogen (EH2) is contracted to provide a 100 MW electrolyzer system for New Fortress Energy’s Texas-based green hydrogen project.
Electric Hydrogen (EH2) and New Fortress Energy (NFE) have signed a supply agreement in which EH2 will supply its 100 MW electrolyzer system to NFE’s green hydrogen project in Texas. The electrolysis technology will enable NFE’s facility to produce approximately 50 tons of green hydrogen per day.
Hydrogen production is expected to begin in Q4 2024, with full operational capacity following in 2025. NFE’s green hydrogen site and facility is capable of scaling upwards from 100 MW to 200 MW for future operation.
“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,” said Wes Edens, Chairman and CEO of New Fortress Energy. “We are focused on developing scalable solutions that have a real impact on decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors of the global economy and given our background, believe we are uniquely positioned to be an early mover in the market.”
EH2 is a manufacturer of pre-integrated 100 MW electrolysis systems, featuring electrolysis stacks to adhere to flexible renewable energy production. The hydrogen plant is based on a modular architecture. EH2 is manufacturing the electrolyzer stacks at a 187,000-square-foot facility in Devens, MA, while NFE is installing balance-of-plant modules for the Texas site. The electrolyzer production facility in Devens is on track to manufacture up to 1.2 GW of electrolyzer stacks per year.
“We are thrilled to partner with Zero Parks, NFE’s hydrogen business, on this groundbreaking 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 realized by building green hydrogen plants at large scale and low cost, which is uniquely enabled by our technology and which this project will indisputably demonstrate,” said Raffi Garabedian, EH2’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder.
