For its H2eron project in Delfzijl, the Netherlands, Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser and HyCC have agreed on a deal for 40 MW of alkaline electrolyser equipment that will cost about EUR 12 million.
The FEED study for the project has been contracted to Kraftanlagen Energies & Services. SkyNRG will use the hydrogen to create sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which is created from waste streams and industrial leftovers like discarded frying oil. In close coordination with SkyNRG and its partners, HyCC recently secured the environmental permission for the project and is aiming for a final investment decision (FID) in 2024.
“H2eron will have a great positive impact on emission reductions from the aviation sector, and we are proud to be selected as the supplier of our well-proven electrolyser technology to this exciting and important project”, says Hans Hide, Nel’s Chief Project Officer. “We are also excited to work with Kraftanlagen on this project, a professional EPC company. This allows Nel to focus on its core scope while still bringing a competitive solution for the hydrogen production system to the customer.”
“Reliable supplies of green hydrogen are key to decarbonizing sectors such as the aviation industry. We build on decades of experience in large-scale electrolysis and are excited to move to the next phase of the project with these strong partners to lay the foundation for the new hydrogen economy”, says Marcel Galjee, Managing Director of HyCC
“We are proud to bring our proven EPC expertise to this lighthouse project. This project will significantly support the decarbonization of the aviation industry. It is important that large-scale green hydrogen production plants now become reality and H2eron will provide for more sustainable aviation. At Kraftanlagen, we are committed to bring these projects to execution and make green hydrogen available”, says Alfons Weber, CEO of Kraftanlagen Energies & Services.
This is a formal purchase order for equipment for alkaline electrolysers. It is anticipated that electrode production would start in Q4 2025.
