Tarafert chooses Ohmium electrolyzers

Ohmium International has inked an agreement with Tarafert, the developer of a large-scale urea fertilizer and green ammonia manufacturing facility in Mexico, to offer 343 megawatts of green Hydrogen electrolyzers.

The delivery of electrolyzers will occur in three phases, with the first 69 megawatts scheduled for delivery in 2025, on time for Tarafert’s project completion. The project’s green Hydrogen will enable the manufacture of up to 200,000 metric tons of green ammonia per year.

“Ammonia shortages this year have shown the importance of countries developing their own production that doesn’t rely on fossil fuels. The Tarafert project is among the most ambitious in the world and we’re excited to be a part of it,” said Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium International. “For too long, ammonia production has been an energy-intensive process that produced tonnes of greenhouse gas. Green Hydrogen can reduce those carbon emissions to zero.”  

“Utilizing green Hydrogen to produce ammonia is a major advantage for our project. Green Hydrogen means our ammonia will no longer be subject to the volatile price spikes and pollution inherent in fossil fuel use,” said Jean Perarnaud, CEO of Tarafert. “Ohmium’s leading edge, cost-effective, modular PEM technology is the perfect choice for this project, it can scale rapidly and efficiently to support the production expansion in phases.”
