Everfuel set to build Europe’s largest electrolyser under HySynergy project
The project will see a large-scale production and storage of green hydrogen and contribute to reducing CO2 emissions in Europe.
Everfuel A/S has been granted the building permit for the 20 MW HySynergy Phase I electrolyser in Fredericia, Denmark.
The facility will have around 8 tonnes/day of green hydrogen production capacity, made from renewable power, and 10 tonnes of storage capacity. The first phase is scheduled to be completed by mid-2022. Upon completion of phase-1, the electrolyser will be the largest in Europe.
Everfuel is responsible for the EPC-work (engineering, procurement and construction), including hydrogen storage and distribution facilities.
Everfuel has also selected CJ A/S as a contractor who has expertise in large-scale construction of both fuelling facilities, industrial facilities, and refineries.
Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy, the partner owning the adjacent Fredericia refinery, will officially start constructing the HySynergy Phase I electrolyser next week through a sod-turning ceremony.
The company will present Q2 2021 results on 19 August.
Jacob Krogsgaard, the CEO of Everfuel, said, “Starting construction of the largest electrolyser in Europe is a significant step for Everfuel, but our ambitions are much beyond the 20 MW electrolyser in Phase I, as we are already now advanced in the planning of 300 MW in Phase II.”
Jonathan Smetana, the CEO of CJ A/S, said, “We look forward to the cooperation and project launch with both respect for the task at hand and the confidence to execute it by putting all our professional skills to good use.”
