Houston/USA – Mc Dermott's storage business, CB&I, will design and build two 500,000-gallon double-wall liquid hydrogen spheres for Plug Power's new green hydrogen production facility in Genesee County, New York, USA. The production facility, leveraging Plug Power's proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer technology, is expected to produce 45 metric tons of green liquid hydrogen per day—making it the largest green hydrogen facility in North America.

The turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract for both spheres also includes insulation, testing and painting with field erection taking place at Plug Power's 30-acre site at the Western New York Science, Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Park, also known as WNY Stamp.

The stainless-steel inner sphere, which holds the liquid hydrogen, will measure nearly 52 feet in diameter with an internal design pressure of 30 pounds per square inch and a design temperature of negative 423 degrees Fahrenheit. The outer sphere, which acts as an insulation container, will be fabricated using carbon steel with a diameter of nearly 60 feet.

The project has passed final investment decision and is currently under construction.
