Mitsubishi Power, HydrogenPro inks pact for initial supply of 40 electrolyzers
Mitsubishi Power Americas, Inc. has announced that it has signed a purchase agreement with HydrogenPro AS for the initial supply of 40 electrolyzers.
HydrogenPro's electrolyzer system will use wind and solar energy to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis to produce green hydrogen. Green hydrogen will be stored and used for power generation, transportation, and industrial use.
This contract strengthens the partnership between Mitsubishi Power and HydrogenPro and builds on their project in Herøya, Norway, to build the first electrolyser system of its kind. Collaboration between the companies, based on rapidly developing hydrogen technology with a common interest in implementing green hydrogen as part of public services in the US, will make it easier to achieve decarbonization goals.
"For HydrogenPro, this is a breakthrough. It shows that our technology is well suited to large-scale projects, making a large amount of affordable, reliable, and clean hydrogen available to customers. We are proud to partner with Mitsubishi Power to deliver technological advances and enable society to use carbon-free hydrogen," said Elling Nygaard, CEO of HydrogenPro.
"Today's announcement confirms the great potential that the US market offers us".
Bill Newsom, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Power Americas, said: "The purchase of electrolyzers from Mitsubishi Power supports our mission to provide energy generation and storage solutions to our customers that empower them to combat climate change affordably and reliably. and promote human prosperity. The electrolyzer system will be included in our Hydaptive™ packages, the world's first standard packages for green hydrogen integration, to help accelerate the path to decarbonization. This purchase affirms our confidence in HydrogenPro's electrolyser system due to work started last year with HydrogenPro to build and validate one of the world's largest single stack high-pressure alkaline electrolyser systems in Norway. Together with our customers and suppliers, we are creating a Gamechanger in energy."
