It’s been another transformational year for ITM Power, CEO Graham Cooley said today (Sep 13) as the UK firm released its full year 2021 results.
Whilst ITM Power reported a loss from operations of £26.7m, its sales revenue jumped 30% to £4.3m, compared to 2020’s £3.3m total.
ITM Power says its contacts backlog sits at £171m, constituting 310MW of electrolysers, up 44% year-on-year.
Highlights from the time period include ITM Power’s strategic partnership with Linde Engineering, sale of what ITM Power says is the world’s largest PEM electrolyser to Linde and commercial partnership agreement with Snam.

“We attracted a strategic investor in Snam, and through our fund raise in October 2020 developed a platform to deliver to market our next generation product, the 5MW Gigastack, two years earlier than previously planned,” Cooley said.
“We also moved into Bessemer Park, the world’s largest PEM electrolyser factory, and commenced manufacturing there in January 2021.
“We have seen national commitments to net zero accelerate, and I believe we are very well placed, with our partner Linde, to address the rapidly growing demand in the market.”
ITM Power said its near-term outlook is “positive” as the “record backlog reflects the demand for larger systems, as well as the strength of partnerships with major blue-chip companies”.
