The Dutch Government has said it will provide Air Liquide with funding support under the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) programme for two electrolyser projects, each boasting 200MW of capacity.
Expected to produce approximately 30,000 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year, both electrolyser projects are set to run on renewable electricity. Air Liquide says the sites will avoid up to five million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
The projects, dubbed ELYgator and CurtHyl, located in Terneuzen and Maasvlakte 2 respectively, will integrate the company’s existing portfolio of assets and enable the supply of low-carbon hydrogen to multiple customers in industry and mobility markets.
