Chart to outfit Lancaster green hydrogen plant with liquefaction technology

Chart Industries has secured an order to supply its liquid hydrogen technology to a 20,000 tonne-per-year (tpy) green hydrogen project in California, US.

Placed by Element Resources, the order will see a Chart hydrogen liquefaction plant supplied to its Lancaster Clean Energy Center (LCEC) in the City of Lancaster.

Expected to begin commercial operations in 2026, the LCEC will utilise dedicated solar generation capacity to power electrolysers which will produce around 20,000 tpy of green hydrogen to serve mobility and manufacturing use cases.

Hydrogen will then be liquefied by the Chart-supplied plant, made up of the Georgia-headquartered company’s refrigeration technology, cold box design and associated rotating equipment.

The order includes the supply of liquid hydrogen storage tanks, trailer load-out bays as well as liquid hydrogen transports and iso containers. Chart added, compression technology is also included.

With the LCEC planned to be build less than 100 miles from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Element Resources CEO, Steve Meheen, previously said the City of Lancaster had the potential of serving the Western US and reaching into Asian markets.

Named as the US’ first “Hydrogen City” in 2020, Lancaster has been engaging in numerous hydrogen activities and partnerships to capitalise on the potential of hydrogen by supporting production and applications.
