Hexagon Purus, through its wholly owned subsidiary Wystrach GmbH (a leading hydrogen systems supplier), has received an order for hydrogen distribution systems from a long-standing customer, a German industrial gas company.
Wystrach’s hydrogen transport systems with Hexagon Purus’ type 4 cylinders will be used to deliver hydrogen for industrial applications in Germany. The value of the order is approximately EUR 5.2 million (approximately NOK 52 million).
The industrial sector is accountable for nearly 30% of annual carbon emissions globally, and hydrogen has a significant role in reducing these emissions, particularly in “hard to abate” sectors. Making green hydrogen available for use in industrial processes is critical to reducing carbon emissions.
As hydrogen, a key contributor to the energy transition, continues to build momentum globally, more than 30 countries have released hydrogen roadmaps, over USD 70 billion in government funding is committed to hydrogen investments, and more than 500 large-scale hydrogen projects have been announced by the industry to date, and green hydrogen is projected to supply up to 25% of the world’s energy needs by 2050.
Matthias Kötter, Head of Sales Wystrach, Hexagon Purus, said, “Our hydrogen distribution concept has become a standard across the industry through close cooperation with our customers. We are proud to continue supporting the development of the hydrogen infrastructure in Germany.”
