Siemens Energy has secured an order from European Energy for the distribution of an electrolyzer plant.

The Danish programmer and also driver of green energy projects creating the "globes initially" large-scale commercial e-Methanol production facility with the hydrogen being offered by a 50MW electrolyzer plant by Siemens Energy.

The strategy is that the plant will certainly be constructed in Kassø, situated west of Aabenraa in the South of Denmark, near the German border.

With the neighboring 300MW solar park of Kassø, established by European Energy, the project will certainly have accessibility to the low-priced eco-friendly electrical energy required to create cost-efficient e-Fuel.

End users of the e-Methanol will certainly be the shipping business Maersk and the fuel retailer Circle K to name a few.

The project safeguards the e-Methanol supply for Maersk' s first e-Methanol driven container vessel, as well as therefore demarks the beginning factor right into CO2-neutral delivery in large-scale.

Beginning of commercial methanol production is planned for second fifty percent of 2023.

Siemens Energy will design, provide and also commission the electrolysis system consisting of three full arrays of its most recent and also most effective line of PEM (proton exchange membrane) electrolysis products.

This will consist of transformers, rectifiers, distributed control system (DCS) plus the tools to generate demineralized water.

European Energy is the proprietor of the project and will certainly be in charge of the design, procurement and construction, in addition to for the operation of the facility.

Siemens Energy elderly vice president of the new energy organization Stefano Innocenzi stated: "Climate adjustment requires urgent action.

" Along with our partner European Energy we are taking over a first mover's role in decarbonizing the aquatic sector.

" With this project we will bring e-Methanol to market at range.

" E-Methanol or obtained e-Fuels are moiraied for long-distance ship as well as road transport in addition to for air travel.

" The project will certainly be proof of the effective commercialization as well as scaling of our PEM technology."

European Energy president Knud Erik Andersen said: "We are pleased to put this important order of what is thought to be the initial large-scale commercial Power-to-X-project of its kind worldwide.

" This is a turning point in the green transition as we move forward with the decarbonization of hard-to-abate industries such as the shipping sector, and we rely on that Siemens Energy impressive knowledge of electrolyzers will certainly end up being a solid structure to increase our business of providing sustainable fuels to the globe."
