McPhy to supply 100 MW electrolyser to GreenH2Atlantic
GreenH2Atlantic project will transform a former coal-fired power plant into a renewable hydrogen production hub.
McPhy has been selected as the preferred supplier to equip the GreenH2Atlantic project with a 100 MW electrolysis plant, in Sines, Portugal.
McPhy has been selected as the preferred partner, with its innovative electrolysis technology, ‘Augmented McLyzer’, which will convert green electricity by electrolysis into over 41 tonnes/year of clean hydrogen. The 100 MW electrolyser will be composed of innovative, scalable and fast-cycling 8 MW modules designed, manufactured and integrated by McPhy.
The electrolysis platform is to supply green hydrogen for industrial (refinery) and energy (injection in the gas grid) uses, upscaling the link between renewables and industry, mobility and energy applications.
The project aims to demonstrate the viability of green hydrogen on a scale of unprecedented production and technological application. The supply agreement is expected to be finalised in Q1 2022.
The construction should start in 2023, and the operation is expected to begin in 2025, subject to securing the necessary authorisations by the authorities. GreenH2Atlantic has been selected by Horizon 2020 for $30 million grant.
With creating a ‘hydrogen valley’ centred in Sines, GreenH2Atlantic will significantly contribute to the region’s sustainability goals.
GreenH2Atlantic is the renewable hydrogen production project in Sines and will be developed by a consortium consisted of 13 organisations:
- Vestas Wind Systems A/S
