Nel Hydrogen US, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has received a contract for a containerised PEM electrolyser and light duty hydrogen fuelling station package from a leading power and gas utility in the United States.

Nel Hydrogen US has received a contract for a containerised PEM electrolyser to be integrated with its 700 bar H2Station® hydrogen fuelling equipment package at a power generating site in the US. The project will demonstrate several use cases for green hydrogen, including cooling of the turbine generators, direct injection of hydrogen into the natural gas fuel stream at the plant, and for fuelling a fleet of light duty fuel cell vehicles to be operated by the utility. Power for the electrolyser will come from various sources, including an on-site solar PV array, making it a near carbon free source of hydrogen for all three use cases.

“This project represents an important opportunity to demonstrate the flexibility and multiple value streams offered by green hydrogen. We are thrilled to be working with a progressive and visionary utility on this project,” says Stephen Szymanski, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Nel Hydrogen US.

The purchase order has a value of approximately USD 5 million, and the equipment will be delivered in late 2022 and early 2023.
