“World’s largest” green hydrogen pilot facility commences operation

The “world’s largest” pilot plant for CO2-neutral production of hydrogen has commenced operation at the voestalpine site in Linz, Austria.

The new plant has a capacity of over six megawatts and is currently regarded as the most effective and state-of-the-art facility of its type. The facility will test whether the technology deployed to produce green hydrogen is suitable for use on an industrial scale.

The project, which received €18m in EU funding, will also investigate the potential to provide network services and potentially compensate for fluctuations in the power grid.
