Plug Power will be delivering a 1 GW electrolyzer to H2 Energy Europe for a green hydrogen production complex in Denmark which is expected to produce up to 100,000 metric tons of green hydrogen annually to power the region’s transportation sector.

Pairing Plug’s leading electrolyzer technology with H2 Energy Europe’s engineering capabilities, this project is a major step towards reducing carbon emissions in the transportation sector for key countries in northern Europe.

New York/USA – Plug Power has been awarded an order to deliver a one-gigawatt (GW) electrolyzer to hydrogen company H2 Energy Europe. Planned for a green hydrogen production complex in Denmark, this is the largest capacity electrolyzer installation in the world to date.

Harnessing offshore wind power, Plug’s electrolyzer technology will enable the production of up to 100,000 metric tons per year of green hydrogen for use in the energy and transportation sector in northern Europe, supplying the fuel needed for the equivalent of approximately 15,000 heavy duty vehicles per day. Through its joint venture with Hyundai, H2 Energy will supply fleets of heavy-duty fuel cell trucks.

Pairing Plug’s leading electrolyzer technology with H2 Energy Europe’s engineering capabilities and strong partnerships, this project is a major step towards reducing carbon emissions in the transportation sector for key countries in northern Europe while building energy security.

“We see green hydrogen as the future and have made significant investments in green hydrogen including in the construction of a gigafactory for electrolyzer production,” noted Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “Our operational readiness and manufacturing capacity were key determinants in our selection for the world’s largest order to date, and we are pleased to be a part of this project with H2 Energy.”

Plug’s electrolyzer products destined for H2 Energy’s Danish complex will be manufactured at Plug’s gigafactory in Rochester, New York, the world's first and largest fuel cell and electrolyzer manufacturing gigafactory. Deployment of the technology at H2 Energy’s complex is expected in 2024, with production of green hydrogen in 2025. The hydrogen production complex, announced in September 2021 by the Danish Government, will be located near Esbjerg and owned and operated by H2 Energy Europe.
