RWE as well as badenova have offered plans to jointly create a center for the manufacturing, transport as well as distribution of green hydrogen on the High Rhine region of Germany.

The proposal would see RWE build an electrolysis plant with a capacity of 50MW in Albbruck alongside the RADAG run-of-river power plant. This would have the capacity to generate approximately 8000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually.

At the same time, badenova framework subsidiary badenovaNETZE would certainly construct a hydrogen pipeline from Waldshut to Albbruck in order to reach industrial as well as transportation clients on both sides of the High Rhine.

Sopna Sury, COO Hydrogen RWE Generation, stated: "With the prepared electrolysis system at the RADAG run-of-river power plant in Albbruck, we can supply green hydrogen in significant quantities from the end of 2026.

" The green electrical energy for this will originate from renewable sources in the region. With the project, RWE supports industrial and transport clients on the Upper Rhine in converting their processes to green hydrogen and therefore achieving their environment goals.

" With the teamwork with the project partners, we are contributing to the growth of a hydrogen facilities that connects the area to emerging hydrogen networks in Germany and also Switzerland."

Heinz-Werner Holscher, badenova board member, added: "In order to secure the commercial area in the border triangle, we are actively promoting the gas network transformation to H2 connect with commercial companions as part of the 3H2 campaign."
