Green Hydrogen Linde to Develop 35 MW PEM Electrolyzer in USA
With an aim to increase green hydrogen production in the USA, Linde has plans to build its largest electrolyzer in New York, USA. The project is expected to double the company’s green hydrogen production capacity in the country.
Woking/UK – Linde has recently announced that it will build a 35-megawatt PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen in Niagara Falls, New York. The new plant will be the largest electrolyzer installed by Linde globally and will more than double Linde’s green liquid hydrogen production capacity in the United States.
Linde will build, own and operate the industrial-scale electrolyzer and use hydroelectric power to produce green liquid hydrogen. The plant is expected to start up by 2025. Linde will leverage its existing liquefier and distribution infrastructure to supply existing and new customers. This project is the first of several electrolyzers Linde expects to build in the U.S. to address green liquid hydrogen demand.
“Linde is the largest liquid hydrogen producer in the U.S. and this new capacity will increase product availability at a time of growing demand from customers across several end markets, including aerospace, electronics and manufacturing,” said Todd Lawson, Vice President East Region, Linde. “We will continue investing in green hydrogen projects to help meet growing demand as well as contribute to a more sustainable energy economy.”
