H2 Green Steel strikes 700MW hydrogen offer

H2 Green Steel is to partner with Germany-based electrolysis specialist Thyssenkrupp Nucera to produce a 700MW electrolysis plant in Boden, Sweden.

The agreement will cover alkaline water electrolysis modern technology (AWE) as well as large-scale electrolysis plant engineering.

Thyssenkrupp Nucera has a tested track record with greater than 600 set up projects as well as over 10GW capacity in the chlor-alkali technology, which is the DNA for 'scalum', its large-scale 20MW conventional AWE module.

Via this partnership, Thyssenkrupp Nucera will provide capacity of greater than 700MW to the electrolysis plant, most likely making the H2 Green Steel plant one of the world's biggest AWE setup by the time its commissioned.

The giga-scale electrolysis plant, the very first worldwide, is based on an idea where H2 Green Steel uniquely will use several matching modern technologies for green hydrogen production, allowing harmonizing of the system for cost-optimization as well as functional flow as each technology's core benefits can be gathered.

To build it, H2 Green steel is joining different world-leading companions and also experience in layout, construction, equipment, operations and also funding.

H2 Green Steel primary innovation policeman Maria Persson Gulda claimed: "The electrolysis plant in Boden will certainly be sometimes larger than many electrolyzer installments that exist today.

" Integrating our very own strong technological know-how with that of an experienced electrolysis distributor like Thyssenkrupp Nucera provides us a solid edge in the expanding green hydrogen economy, which we will certainly take advantage of to change difficult to mellow out markets.

" We begin with steel in Boden, Sweden, however it's only the start."

Hydrogen produced in the electrolysis plant in Boden will be consumed on-site in a straight reduction process, reducing iron ore to sponge iron, making it possible for manufacturing of green steel.

The electrolyzer units will certainly be important to make best use of the operational and economic benefits of the hydrogen in the steel mill, which additionally creates the structure for new patented intellectual property assets.

The job leading up to the signing of the contract was enabled with support from Sweden's Industrial Jump program, led by the Swedish Energy Agency.
