The PEM electrolyser will be used to produce hydrogen for a refuelling station in Bremerhaven, Germany, being powered by a nearby wind farm. H2 View understands it will be operational by mid-2023.
Set to be built on the Grauwallring Industrial Estate, the hydrogen production plan is part of the HY.City.Bremerhaven hydrogen project, which GP-JOULE initiated.
GP-JOULE’s order builds on its collaboration with H-TEC Systems after the two companies worked on the eFarm project in North Friesland.
André Steinau, Managing Director of GP JOULE, commented, “The electrolyser order is a big step for the HY.City.Bremerhaven project.
“Our well-coordinated coordination and the reliable technology will help us to get the project on the home straight on time and to be able to offer regional green hydrogen in Bremerhaven in 2023. The fuel cell vehicles will help make the city quieter and cleaner.”
In March, the project already received funding approval from the German Federal Ministry of Transport as part of the ‘HyLand’ funding programme.
HY.City.Bremerhaven is part of the hydrogen network project ‘Hyways’ for Future”, which covers the North-West metropolitan region of Germany from Oldenburg to Cuxhaven.
Frank Zimmermann, Chief Financial Officer at H-TEC SYSTEMS, “We are delighted to be working with our long-standing partner GP JOULE.
“Together we are making the infrastructure in Bremerhaven greener and thus contributing actively to the energy turnaround.”
