Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has signed a contract for 40 MW of alkaline electrolyser equipment for about EUR 12 million with HyCC for its H2eron project in Delfzijl, Netherlands.
Kraftanlagen Energies & Services has been contracted for the FEED study related to the project.
SkyNRG will use the hydrogen to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), made from industrial byproducts and residue streams, such as used cooking oil. HyCC recently received the environmental permit for the project, and the company is working towards a final investment decision (FID) in 2024, in close alignment with SkyNRG and its partners.
“H2eron will have a great positive impact on emission reductions from the aviation sector, and we are proud to be selected as the supplier of our well-proven electrolyser technology to this exciting and important project,” says Hans Hide, Nel’s Chief Project Officer. “We are also excited to work with Kraftanlagen on this project, a professional EPC company. This allows Nel to focus on its core scope while still bringing a competitive solution for the hydrogen production system to the customer.”
“Reliable supplies of green hydrogen are key to decarbonizing sectors such as the aviation industry. We build on decades of experience in large-scale electrolysis and are excited to move to the next phase of the project with these strong partners to lay the foundation for the new hydrogen economy,” says Marcel Galjee, Managing Director of HyCC.
“We are proud to bring our proven EPC expertise to this lighthouse project. This project will significantly support the decarbonization of the aviation industry. It is important that large-scale green hydrogen production plants now become reality and H2eron will provide for more sustainable aviation. At Kraftanlagen, we are committed to bring these projects to execution and make green hydrogen available,” says Alfons Weber, CEO of Kraftanlagen Energies & Services.
This is a firm purchase order for alkaline electrolyser equipment. Electrode production is estimated to commence in Q4 2025.
