thyssenkrupp nucera's high-efficiency electrolyzers to be used in North American project

Another company has signed a reservation agreement with thyssenkrupp nucera for production capacities for its high-efficiency water electrolyzers to produce green H2. For a North American project, a company has contractually secured the supply of the standardized 20-MW "scalum" electrolysis modules with a total installed capacity in the high multi-hundred-MW range.

Green H2 can be produced on an industrial scale with the "scalum" modules for highly efficient electrolysis plants. The company needs alkaline water electrolyzers to implement its growth strategy in the market for green H2. The two companies have agreed not to disclose further details of the contract.

For the second time in just a few months, a company has thus decided to take advantage of the offer of a reservation agreement from thyssenkrupp nucera to secure its supply chain at an early stage. Due to the dynamically growing market for green H2, demand for the climate-neutral energy carrier and thus thyssenkrupp nucera's solution to produce green H2 on an industrial scale is very high.

"With our reservation agreement to reserve our production capacities, we enable companies to plan with greater certainty for projects in the megawatt and gigawatt range. With this instrument, we can support our customers in realizing their expansion plans in the fast-growing green H2 market," said Dr. Christoph Noeres, Head of Green H2 at thyssenkrupp nucera AG & Co. KGaA. "In North America, the H2 economy is picking up speed and will certainly set the global pace in the coming years. With this agreement, thyssenkrupp nucera has achieved an important milestone for its third project in this important key market."

H2 Green Steel was the first company to secure manufacturing capacity by signing a reservation agreement and later a supply agreement with thyssenkrupp nucera. The industrial start-up from Sweden is using thyssenkrupp nucera's large-scale electrolyzers to produce green H2 for the first commercial-scale green steel plant in Europe. With a total installed capacity of more than 700 MW, one of Europe's largest water electrolysis plants is also being built.

thyssenkrupp nucera already has contracted more than 3 gigawatts (GW) of the capacity of alkaline water electrolysis. These include a more than 2-GW electrolysis plant for Air Products in Saudi Arabia, making it one of the world's largest green H2 projects, the delivery of Shell's new 200-MW H2 plant in the port of Rotterdam, and H2 Green Steel's green steel plant. These reference projects prove that thyssenkrupp nucera is a world leading technology provider for the industry, ranging from multi-100 MW up to the gigawatt power range.
