Clean Power Hydrogen, the Doncaster-based producer of the world’s first Membrane-Free Electrolyser, has announced that it has been awarded a contract by Octopus Hydrogen to supply a 1MW electrolyser.
The order is a significant milestone for Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2), as it is the company’s first 1MW electrolyser delivery to a UK-based hydrogen production and supply company, demonstrating the continued high level of interest in the company’s proprietary Membrane-Free ElectrolyserTM.
William Rowe, CEO and Founder of Octopus Hydrogen, said: “Our focus is on delivering green hydrogen to the sectors which cannot be decarbonised by batteries alone, mainly aviation and heavy-duty road vehicles. We are establishing a decentralised production of green hydrogen via electrolysis, co-located with renewable energy generation, with localised distribution. CPH2’s simple design and unique approach to fuel cell grade hydrogen production, it’s UK based manufacturing and fantastic culture and team are a great partner for us on this journey.”
Jon Duffy, CEO of CPH2, said: “We are excited to be working with such an innovative and environmentally aware energy supplier, as Octopus Hydrogen. This order marries perfectly with our sustainability ethos to manufacture carbon-friendly technology.”
Octopus Hydrogen expects to receive the 1MW Membrane-Free ElectrolyserTM in late 2021. The system, which can produce up to 451kg/H2 per day, utilizes cryogenic separation technology to generate hydrogen with a purity of up to 99.999 percent and oxygen with a purity of up to 99.5 percent acceptable for medical usage.
