Green Hydrogen Systems (GHS) will supply electrolysers for a large-scale Power-to-X pilot project in the Netherlands.
Now under construction at the Ecomunitypark in Oosterwolde, the project is being run in collaboration with solar-farm developer GroenLeven and involves using electrolysers to convert excess solar or wind energy into hydrogen.
The converted green hydrogen will then be stored and sold for use in transportation, industry, heating and other areas.
1.4 MW and scalable
Initially, the contract covers the supply of three standardised GHS HyProvide™ A90 electrolysers with a combined capacity of 1.4MW.
The hydrogen produced will be compressed and stored at 300 bar in a tube trailer for later use.
As GHS electrolysers are standardised units that can be combined for multi-MW production, Dutch energy company Alliander will be able to meet any subsequent need to scale by adding additional HyProvide units to the initial cluster of three.
“With a view to preventing congestion in our electricity grid, this project will enable us to explore the entire green hydrogen value chain, from equipment suppliers to end-customer service and including the whole regulatory and taxation setup,” said Ben Tubben, who is managing the project for Alliander.
“GHS electrolysers offer a unique combination of efficiency and scalability, and we are very happy to be partnering with them on this landmark pilot project.”
“Large-scale projects like this one are critical for ramping up green hydrogen adoption and for driving costs down,” said Green Hydrogen Systems CEO Niels-Arne Baden.
“Alliander is showing serious leadership in this area, not least by deploying a hydrogen plant at a solar farm.”
