Linde to build 24-MW PEM electrolyser plant in Germany
January 13 (Renewables Now) - A joint venture between industrial gases supplier Linde Plc (NYSE:LIN) and ITM Power Plc (LON:ITM) will build a 24-MW Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser plant at a chemicals production facility in Germany.
Specifically, ITM Linde Electrolysis GmbH will construct the plant at the Leuna Chemical Complex to produce green hydrogen for industrial customers. Linde noted it will distribute liquefied green hydrogen to refuelling stations and other industrial clients in the region.
According to Linde, this would be the world’s largest such facility. It is expected to begin production in the second half of 2022.
The industrial gases supplier has so far installed nearly 200 hydrogen fuelling stations and 80 hydrogen electrolysis plants around the world. The company also runs the world's first high-purity hydrogen storage cavern.
