Linde announced today (8th September) that it will build a 35-megawatt PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen in Niagara Falls, New York.
The new plant will be the largest electrolyzer installed by Linde globally and will more than double Linde’s green liquid hydrogen production capacity in the United States.
Linde will build, own and operate the industrial-scale electrolyzer and use hydroelectric power to produce green liquid hydrogen. The plant is expected to start up by 2025. Linde will leverage its existing liquefier and distribution infrastructure to supply existing and new customers. This project is the first of several electrolyzers Linde expects to build in the US to address green liquid hydrogen demand.
Linde operates the world’s first high-purity hydrogen storage cavern plus pipeline networks totalling approximately 1,000 km globally to reliably supply its customers.
Linde is at the forefront of the transition to clean hydrogen and has installed over 200 hydrogen fueling stations and 80 hydrogen electrolysis plants worldwide.
Linde is the largest liquid hydrogen producer in the US, and this new capacity will increase product availability during a growing demand from customers across several end markets, including aerospace, electronics and manufacturing.
Todd Lawson, Vice President East Region, Linde, said, “We will continue investing in green hydrogen projects to help meet growing demand as well as contribute to a more sustainable energy economy.”
