Hy2B to build a 5MW electrolysis plant in Bavaria

Hy2B Wasserstoff GmbH plans to construct a 5-MW electrolyzer in Bavaria, with production expected to begin in the second half of 2023 for the local mobility industry.

The facility, which will contain an alkaline electrolyzer from Norwegian manufacturer NEL ASA, will be built by Munich-based technical firm Kraftanlagen Energies & Services GmbH.

The electrolyzer will be powered by a neighboring 10-MW solar park run by BuergerEnergie Niederbayern eG in the municipality of Pfeffenhausen.

The facility will create an average of 1,200 kg of green hydrogen per day, which will be supplied to two filling stations in the Munich and Ebersberg regions via trucks. The clean fuel will be utilized by 10 hydrogen buses in Munich’s regional traffic, with the surplus being sold to other mobility and energy users. Green hydrogen will be provided to the hydrogen technology application center WTAZ, which will be erected near the electrolyzer, starting in 2024/25.

Hy2B Wasserstoff is a collaborative effort between Hynergy Invest GmbH, BayWa AG, Tyczka Hydrogen GmbH, the municipalities of Landshut and Munich, and the energy cooperatives Niederbayern eG, Isar eG, and Unterhaching eG. The firm was founded in 2020 with the goal of developing an electrolyzer.
