Danish company Everfuel announced that Europe largest electrolyzer located in Fredericia, Denmark, started producing hydrogen. The hydrogen was produced from the first set of electrolyser stacks as part of the planned start-up and testing of production equipment at the 20 MW HySynergy facility. The small amount of hydrogen produced was safely vented into the atmosphere with no environmental impact.
According to Everfuel, The initial production is the first step towards ramping up the electrolyser facility to supply green hydrogen to customers seeking to decarbonise industrial processes, such as the adjacent Crossbridge Refinery, and to customers seeking clean fuels for zero-emission mobility. Commercial production is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2023, subject to relevant approvals by Danish authorities, as HySynergy is currently the first large-scale PtX facility in Denmark and is considered a learning case for the authorities’ work related to coming Danish PtX projects.
Everfuel: plans to reach green hydrogen production
By end of 2025, when the 300 MW electrolyser facility is established, HySynergy will have the capacity to produce green hydrogen that may facilitate an up to 500,000 tonnes reduction of carbon emissions per year from the industry and the mobility sectors, corresponding to 11% of the total carbon emissions from the Danish land-based transport sector in 2020. Accumulated facility capacity planned for 1GW in 2030.
“First hydrogen is a major milestone both for Everfuel and for a greener society. We are executing on our promise to soon bring commercial green hydrogen to the market, and I am grateful to the project team and partners who have worked tirelessly to make this happen on schedule amid a challenging supply chain market,” commented Jacob Krogsgaard, founder and CEO of Everfuel.
