Elogen and Sarralle to provide hydrogen solution to the steel industry
The solutions encompass hydrogen generation and its integration in the steel plants to hydrogen combustion equipment.
Elogen and Sarralle agreed on collaboration for the engineering, manufacturing, supply and commissioning of green hydrogen generation equipment for the steel industry.
Elogen (specialised in designing and assembling PEM electrolysers) and Sarralle (an engineering manufacturing company) signed a collaboration agreement for the steel industry’s engineering, manufacturing, supply and commissioning of green hydrogen generation equipment.
Both companies will work together to design and manufacture green hydrogen generation equipment and integrate both containerised and electrolysis plant solutions into the industry.
The collaboration includes developing pilot projects of green hydrogen as a primary fuel source for the steel industry and the construction of electrolysis plants on steel industrial sites.
The steel sector, which generates around 9% of the world’s total CO2 emissions, is carrying out decarbonisation actions per the EU’s objectives to achieve a carbon-free economy by 2050.
Decreasing renewable energy costs and improved electrolyser technologies are expected to improve green hydrogen-based steel cost competitiveness.
Jean-Baptiste Choimet, MD of Elogen, said, “With this collaboration agreement, Elogen takes its technological solutions a step further towards their integration in energy-intensive industries.”
Roberto Arroniz, MD of Sarralle E&E, commented, “We consider Elogen to be the ideal strategic partner to extend our hydrogen technology solutions and provide the steel industry with a complete solution for green hydrogen to achieve their decarbonisation goals.”
