HyCC has picked the engineering contractor and also technology provider for its green hydrogen project H2eron in Delfzijl, the Netherlands.

The 40MW plant is to create the very first hydrogen in 2026 to support the production of sustainable air travel fuels.

HyCC contracted Kraftanlagen Energies & Services for the basic style as well as engineering (FEED) of the plant and placed an order with Nel for the supply of the electrolysis stacks.

The plant will certainly be operated by HyCC and also make use of Nel's atmospheric alkaline electrolyzers to produce green hydrogen from renewable power and also water.

It will certainly be among the very first plants to apply this modern technology at this scale, HyCC stated.

The hydrogen will be made use of by SkyNRG to produce lasting aviation fuel (SAF), made from commercial byproducts and deposit streams, such as made use of cooking oil.

In its pure form, the use of SAF causes 85% lower carbon exhausts compared to fossil jet fuel, across its lifecycle.

HyCC recently obtained the ecological permit for the project as well as the company is functioning towards the final investment decision (FID) in 2024, in close alignment with SkyNRG as well as its partners.

HyCC managing director Marcel Galjee claimed: "Reliable materials of green hydrogen are key to decarbonize fields such as the aviation sector.

" We improve years of experience in large-scale electrolysis and also are thrilled to move to the following stage of the project with these strong companions to lay the structure for the new hydrogen economy."

Alfons Weber, president of Kraftanlagen Energies & Services, included: "We are proud to bring our tested EPC expertise to this lighthouse project.

" This project will dramatically support the decarbonization of the air travel industry.

" It is essential that large-scale green hydrogen production plants now become fact and also H2eron will certainly offer more lasting aeronautics.

" At Kraftanlagen, we are devoted to bring these projects to execution and also make green hydrogen available."
