Sunfire achieves major milestone with second generation SOEC

Sunfire, a leader in solid oxide electrolysis technology (SOEC), has successfully operated and tested a 250kW electrolysis module, which is setting the base for the planned distribution of a 3MW electrolyser to Neste’s refinery in Rotterdam for the EU-funded MultiPLHY project.

The SOEC module consists of 60 stacks with 1,800 solid oxide electrolysis cells and it produces 63Nm2/h of hydrogen from renewable electricity and water steam – this is equivalent to a hydrogen production volume of 5.7kg per hour.

Due to the utilisation of steam, high-temperature electrolysis is particularly efficient compared to other electrolysis technologies.
