Siemens Energy: builds electrolyser with BASF
(CercleFinance.com) - BASF has announced "a major milestone" in the construction of a proton exchange membrane electrolyser.
In cooperation with Siemens Energy, water electrolysis work at the Ludwigshafen site - the so-called Hy4Chem-EI project - can now enter the next phase of construction.
With an output of 54 megawatts (MW) and a capacity of up to 8,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year, the PEM electrolyzer will be one of the largest of its kind in Germany once operational, BASF says.
Powered by electricity from renewable energy sources, the system will produce CO2-free hydrogen, reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the site by up to 72,000 tonnes a year.
BASF and Siemens Energy plan to start operating the water electrolysis plant in 2025.
