  • ABB partners with Green Hydrogen International for groundbreaking 2.2-GW Power-to-X project in Texas, set to revolutionize green hydrogen production for global export.

Swiss industrial group ABB Ltd has partnered with Green Hydrogen International to work on a 2.2-GW Power-to-X project in Texas to produce green hydrogen for global export. The collaboration will assess the deployment of ABB's automation, electrification, and digital technology for the project, including measurement and analytics solutions, and power and process optimization solutions.

The project, part of GHI's Hydrogen City initiative, will start with the installation of an electrolyser to produce 280,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually. The hydrogen will be transported to the Corpus Christi energy port for conversion into green ammonia and export to Europe and Asia. The production process will be powered by solar PV and onshore wind energy, with storage in underground salt caverns. Construction is set to begin in 2026, with the first hydrogen production expected in 2030 and plans for further capacity expansion as the market grows.

How will ABB's technology support the 2.2-GW Power-to-X project in Texas?

  • ABB's automation technology will help optimize the production process of green hydrogen, ensuring efficient and reliable operations.
  • ABB's electrification solutions will support the integration of solar PV and onshore wind energy into the project, providing a sustainable power source for electrolysis.
  • ABB's digital technology, including measurement and analytics solutions, will enable real-time monitoring and control of the production process, maximizing productivity and minimizing downtime.
  • ABB's power and process optimization solutions will help enhance the overall efficiency of the Power-to-X project, reducing energy consumption and operational costs.
  • The collaboration between ABB and Green Hydrogen International will contribute to the development of a large-scale green hydrogen production facility in Texas, supporting the transition towards a more sustainable energy system.
