With support from the Important Project of Common European Interest (Ipcei) Hy2Tech program, Cummins will expand its existing PEM electrolyzer manufacturing capacity at its Oevel, Belgium factory to 1 GW, thus accelerating the green hydrogen initiative.
Columbus/USA – Cummins will expand PEM electrolyzer manufacturing capacity at its Oevel, Belgium, factory to 1 gigawatt (GW) with the support from the Important Project of Common European Interest (Ipcei) Hy2Tech program. Ipcei – recently approved by the European Commission, with funding granted by Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship Agency (Vlaio) – will help Cummins develop a new generation of PEM electrolyzer cell stacks to power large-scale hydrogen production systems.
By scaling manufacturing capacity, Cummins will continue to drive the green hydrogen economy in Europe and globally, able to support new infrastructure projects and advance government decarbonization goals.
“Innovation is key in this fast-growing market, and Europe has the unique opportunity to become the technology, design and production hub for hydrogen generation equipment,” said Alexey Ustinov, Vice President of Electrolyzers at Cummins. “This funding from Ipcei is important for the entire hydrogen value chain and proves that Cummins is on the right track to drive the hydrogen economy forward. Continuously accelerating R&D capabilities and increasing our manufacturing capacity will help us respond to growing market demand in Europe and globally.”
