GenH2, an industry leader in hydrogen infrastructure solutions, and Chart Industries (“Chart”), a leading global engineering design and manufacturer of highly engineered equipment servicing multiple applications in the clean energy and industrial gas markets, have formed a strategic partnership to jointly market and distribute small-scale hydrogen liquefaction technologies globally.
Included in the agreement are collaboration on global sales and marketing opportunities, equipment manufacturing and supply, and the deployment of GenH2’s 1,000 kg/day hydrogen liquefier.
Demand for distributed hydrogen infrastructure has grown significantly and the supply of liquid hydrogen remains low or non-existent in some geographies. GenH2’s 1000 Kg/day solution will allow for the deployment of a scalable, modular distributed infrastructure that breaks geographic constraints.
According to the details of the MOU, GenH2 will incorporate Chart equipment into their liquefaction systems, inclusive of storage, heat exchangers, and other key components. In addition to its global footprint, Chart also has 60 years of experience manufacturing hydrogen equipment that leads the industry in performance and quality. “In a market where supply chain concerns are rampant, this strategic partnership will allow us to meet our growing order list,” said Greg Gosnell.
The GenH2 flagship 1 TPD liquefaction system offers 1,000 kg/day of pure para hydrogen using technology that is optimized for performance and efficiency. The small footprint of the system was intended to be deployed at the point of demand, providing the user with flexibility and control over their energy source. This partners well as a complement to Chart’s larger H2 liquefaction capabilities, and allows Chart to focus on expanding larger-scale solutions and GenH2 to focus on small distributed liquefaction systems.
Additionally, the two companies will collaborate to continue to develop industry relationships across the full hydrogen value chain as well as pursue new customers where opportunities exist.
“Partnering with GenH2 on technology and equipment is a positive for the industry in furthering hydrogen liquefaction options of all scales and for a variety of applications,” stated Jill Evanko. “We are excited to collaborate with GenH2 to bring these innovative solutions to market in a safe and efficient manner.”
The agreement follows GenH2’s recent introduction of its GenH2 LS20 Mobile Liquid Hydrogen System, an end-to-end liquefication system that functions both as a stationary unit, and on a trailer for mobile use. As a complete system, the LS20 can liquefy, store, and dispense liquid hydrogen.
