  • The first 1GW PEM electrolyser will show up in 2023.
  • The production line will certainly be improved a 2000 meters location at a price of EUR30 million.

Siemens Energy has said that it will certainly develop a multi-gigawatt (GW) proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser factory in Germany for green hydrogen. It stated that the first 1GW segment will certainly be made functional in 2023.

The PEM electrolyser factory will certainly be an extremely automated center that will certainly be built in an existing manufacturing structure which is already used by Siemens Energy. The firm is making gas wind turbines that are capable of burning hydrogen blends.

The brand-new production lines are being intended on 2,000 square meters at Huttenstrasse in Moabit locality of Berlin, at an expense of EUR30 million.

The business has actually introduced that it will produce individual electrolysis cells and combine them to develop 'heaps' in the Berlin plant. The electrical energy supplied will certainly be sourced from renewable resources.

The cells as well as stacks will be transported by Siemens on trucks to a center 540km away in Mulheim where they will be assembled into 'larger process-based units.'

Christian Bruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), "For us, hydrogen is a crucial part of the future energy world. For this to be economically viable, the manufacturing expenses for electrolyzers need to be substantially reduced. With our new production center, we are assisting to make hydrogen affordable faster."

"We are pooling our knowledge in the field of numerous energy modern technologies in Berlin. For us, hydrogen is a crucial element of the future energy world," he stated. Siemens Energy is a spin off from Siemens Group's Gas as well as Power division. The company is currently in business of PEM electrolysers production. It has actually intended to relocate its existing manufacturing capacity to Berlin.

As for the key facets of PEM Electrolysis are worried, there is a high degree of effectiveness, high item gas top quality as well as trustworthy operation without chemicals or contaminations.
