Take 5: An interview with… Andrew T.B. Stuart, President and CEO of Hydrogen Optimized

Thanks for giving H2 View your time. Tell us a little about Hydrogen Optimized…

Hydrogen Optimized was founded three years ago to advance large-scale green hydrogen production. We address the large end of the marketplace through our high current RUGGEDCELL™ water electrolysis technology. We recognized that there appeared to be a void in the market for a truly large-scale technology which can meet the need for 100s of MW production modules versus 10s of MWs.

Our approach is highly reliable industrial hydrogen generators which can obtain the economies of scale which the replication of smaller modules cannot. Every aspect of our design and approach is to ensure that we have an inherent low capital cost design and the $/MW of a project continuously reduces as the MW of the project scope increases. In addition, the RuggedCell™ design enables the use of low cost, scalable manufacturing technologies. Our focus is both a highly efficient and cost-effective water electrolysis solution as well as a solution that can be mass manufactured.

We heard in early September that Hydrogen Optimized had signed an MoU with ABB to explore the development of large-scale green hydrogen production. Tell us a bit about that…
We were most pleased ABB was able to announce this special programme we are advancing together. The key aspect of this is the focus on High Current RuggedCell™ water electrolysis technology with high current ABB rectification equipment to produce a high power electrolysis plant module.
