NovoHydrogen and TigerGenCo, LLC (TGC) announced today their intent to advance development of green hydrogen capacity to reduce reliance on natural gas at the Bayonne Energy Center located in New Jersey and serving power to New York City via a sub-Hudson cable.
NovoHydrogen, a leader in deploying and commercializing successful innovative energy transition technologies, will develop and operate the hydrogen production facility to reduce Bayonne’s carbon emissions while continuing to provide reliable electricity supply to the New York Metro area. Ohmium International, Inc., a green hydrogen company that designs, manufactures, and deploys PEM Electrolyzers, plans to provide the electrolyzers for the project. New technology allows for the combustion of zero-carbon fuels to provide the same controllable power without the associated emissions from fossil natural gas.
“Green hydrogen offers a tremendous opportunity to utilize current gas-powered energy generating assets to provide 100% 24/7 dispatchable clean power for the New York Metro region. We are tremendously excited to work with the TigerGenCo team on this innovative project to show what can be done,” said Matt McMonagle, NovoHydrogen’s CEO. “Ohmium’s PEM electrolyzers provide us with the perfect scalable and flexible solution for this application. We can expand capacity over time as the project progresses.”
“The New York Metro region, and the world, are moving towards clean energy solutions. We continue to explore ways to reduce emissions and make our portfolio of assets more environmentally friendly while at the same time providing residents and businesses with reliable, dispatchable power,” said TigerGenCo CEO Tom Miller. “We look forward to continuing to work with the team at NovoHydrogen to create the first operating green hydrogen fueled peaker plants in the region.”
NovoHydrogen develops both on and off-site renewable hydrogen solutions for its customers. The company works closely with renewable electricity providers and top hydrogen equipment providers to deliver green hydrogen where and when it is needed. This innovative approach provides large power plant operators, such as TGC, with the ability to provide the same controllable power as that from the combustion of fossil natural gas, without the associated greenhouse gas emissions.
