Ohmium to supply 120 MW PEM Electrolyzers to NovoHydrogen for US power plant
Green hydrogen startup Ohmium International Inc. has recently finalized an agreement with Colorado-based renewable hydrogen projects developer NovoHydrogen to supply PEM electrolyzers for 120MW of green hydrogen capacity project, which is to be used as a zero-carbon replacement fuel for a portion of the gas usage at a power plant in New Jersey.
"We're thrilled to work with NovoHydrogen on this groundbreaking project that demonstrates the power and potential of green hydrogen. The world is moving away from fossil fuels and there is significant infrastructure that can be transitioned to green hydrogen use—from pipelines to power generation," said Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium International. "The team at NovoHydrogen is great in the sector and is the perfect collaborator to bring this project to completion."
"Green hydrogen offers a tremendous opportunity to utilize current gas-powered energy generating assets to provide 100 percent 24/7 dispatchable clean power. We are tremendously excited to work on this innovative project to show what can be done," said Matt McMonagle, NovoHydrogen's CEO. "Ohmium's leading edge, modular, cost-effective PEM electrolyzers provide us with the perfect scalable solution for green hydrogen applications. We can expand capacity over time as the projects progress."
Ohmium's unique interlocking modular PEM electrolyzers provide a safer, modular, flexible, easy to install and produce pressurized high-purity hydrogen, the company claims. Individual electrolyzers can be stacked to significantly reduce installation and maintenance costs while enabling unlimited configurations of deployment sizes.
The company's proprietary electrolyzer stack technology can sustain a differential pressure across the membrane without compromise, which enhances cost-effective operation, it add
