Plug Power Inc. and Certarus (USA) Ltd have signed a long-term supply and logistics agreement to expand the required infrastructure to accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen fuel.
The companies will leverage their collective expertise in hydrogen production, mobile energy distribution and related technologies to enhance the North American supply chain.
Plug Power will provide Certarus with up to 10 tonnes/day of green hydrogen from its North American hydrogen production network, with initial deliveries expected in Q1 2022.
Certarus’ integrated logistics platform and an industry-leading fleet of compressed gas delivery trailers will transport hydrogen directly from production locations to Plug Power’s and Certarus’ end users. The end-users will include mining, power generation, natural gas midstream and industrial energy companies that would also partner on the supply of equipment from Plug Power to serve their customers’ needs cost-effectively.
Certarus will offer hydrogen to its customers as either a pure or methane-blended fuel. Certarus’ safety record, logistics network and expertise will help service Plug Power as it continues to grow.
Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, said, “The partnership with Certarus is a meaningful step in building out the green hydrogen ecosystem to serve large energy sectors and in providing Plug Power the ability to flex and scale our overall delivery capabilities.”
Curtis Philippon, CEO of Certarus, commented, “Certarus’ access to Plug Power’s green hydrogen production will allow us to sell cost-effective green hydrogen to our own unique customers.”
