RWE to supply thyssenkrupp with green hydrogen

German energy group RWE will supply steelmaker thyssenkrupp with green hydrogen as part of a new long-term hydrogen partnership.

RWE plans to build a 100MW electrolyser in the state of Lower Saxony to supply thyssenkrupp’s steel operations in Duisburg by the middle of the decade.

The 100MW electrolyser could produce 1.7 tonnes of gaseous hydrogen per hour, corresponding to around 70% of the quantity required by thyssenkrupp’s blast furnace earmarked for hydrogen use.

According to thyssenkrupp, this would translate theoretically into around 50,000 tonnes of climate-neutral steel.
