Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has been awarded a contract for an alkaline electrolyser system to Glencore Nikkelverk in Kristansand, Norway.
The green hydrogen from the electrolyser system will be used for the production of hydrochloric acid.
Glencore Nikkelverk is already familiar with alkaline electrolyser technology as they currently operate a similar electrolyser system at the site in Kristiansand, also delivered by Nel.
The purchase order has a value exceeding € 3 million, and delivery off the equipment is expected to be mid-2023.
Henning Langås, Senior Tender Manager, said, “We are honoured to be re-elected as electrolyser supplier to Glencore Nikkelverk through their competitive tender -process when they now shall expand their production of hydrochloric acid. Given their high competence on electrolyser technology, with primary focus on safety and reliability, we look forward to strengthening our relationship with Glencore through the project execution and beyond.”
Nils G. Gjelsten, Managing director of Glencore Nikkelverk AS, said, “Hydrogen is an important input factor in our processes and very high reliability is required. Nikkelverk has produced Hydrogen for internal use for more than 60 years. We are pleased to continue a long relationship with Nel and their well-proven and reliable alkaline electrolysers.”
