Enertrag and Sunfire have signed a new agreement that will see a 15MW electrolysis test field site developed in Prenzlau, Germany.
The partners will supply a number of electrolyser systems with a total capacity of up to 15MW – the largest of which will be Sunfire’s 10MW pressurised alkaline electrolyser.

Hydrogen produced at this site will be supplied to a hydrogen refuelling station on site of the Prenzlau facility with a major emphasis on the green hydrogen supplying the local mobility sector.
An innovative high-temperature electrolysis system, based on solid oxide electrolysis cell technology (SOEC), will also be implemented at the facility.
Nils Aldag, CEO of Sunfire, said, “The hydrogen centre offers optimal conditions to validate our technological advancements due to the sufficient green electricity available.
“We have been able to prove our pressurised alkaline technology in numerous industrial projects worldwide over the past decades. Our new S+ generation will set entirely new standards.”
Manuela Blaicher, Head of Power-to-X at Enertrag, said, “The cooperation agreement with Sunfire marks another milestone for our hydrogen centre in Prenzlau.
“It is important for us to produce green hydrogen from regionally generated, renewable electricity, reducing the power grid load and storing surplus electricity in a smart way.
“We are particularly excited about the opportunity to gain more insights about new technologies that will be important for the continuing energy transition.”
