ITM Power announced the sale of a HGas3SP (2MW) electrolyzer and supporting equipment to Linde plc for the publicly funded H2Pioneer project in Austria. One of the main goals of the H2Pioneer project is demonstrating the production of green hydrogen on-site to be used in semiconductor production, mostly replacing the supply of liquified hydrogen delivered in trailers.
The HGas3SP (2MW) electrolyser system will not only produce green hydrogen, after further purification by Linde, the hydrogen produced will be ultra-pure for semiconductor manufacture. The use of electrolysis simplifies downstream hydrogen purification and minimizes delivery logistics while helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the hydrogen supply chain.
“We are delighted to announce this project, our first in Austria and our first for the semiconductor industry. We will work very closely with our key partner Linde and it is pleasing that this first sale to Austria also takes us into a new industry.”Dr Graham Cooley, ITM Power CEO
