Electric Hydrogen Co. (EH2) and New Fortress Energy Inc. have announced a definitive agreement to supply EH2’s 100-megawatt electrolysis system for NFE’s green hydrogen project in Texas. This facility is expected to be one of the largest in North America and will be powered by EH2’s advanced electrolysis technology.
EH2 manufactures 100 MW turnkey electrolysis systems capable of producing nearly 50 tons of green hydrogen per day. The electrolytic cells, which have record efficiency and can adapt to the fluctuations of renewable energy production, are manufactured at EH2’s factory in Devens, Massachusetts. The facility’s modular architecture reduces the cost and complexity of on-site construction.
Initial hydrogen production at the Texas facility is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2024 and full commercial operations will occur in 2025. The site and facility have the potential to scale to 200 MW in the future.
Wes Edens, President and CEO of New Fortress Energy, expressed excitement about the partnership with EH2, stating that the collaboration aims to accelerate the global energy transition by providing clean, abundant and cost-effective hydrogen. He stressed that scalable solutions are needed to decarbonize difficult sectors of the economy.
Raffi Garabedian, CEO and co-founder of EH2, expressed excitement about partnering with Zero Parks, NFE’s hydrogen company, on this large-scale green hydrogen project. He believes this collaboration will accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen and help industrial sectors reduce their emissions by the end of the decade.
