3 000 tonnes of green hydrogen a year in the Netherlands

McPhy and de Nora have been selected by HyCC for a green hydrogen production site with a capacity of 20 megawatts in the Netherlands. State-of-the-art electrolysers will be set up in Delfzijl (Netherlands).

The site in the Netherlands will use McPhy electrolysers to produce up to 3,000 tonnes of green hydrogen a year from renewable energy and water. The Djewels project will be the first to use the French company’s “Augmented McLyzer” technology on such a large scale, with a higher current density. It will provide greater production flexibility with reduced space requirements. This green hydrogen will be used by OCI Methanol Europe to produce renewable methanol. This will reduce CO2 emissions by up to 27,000 tonnes a year.

Other companies involved in the project include Gasunie, DeNora and Hinicio.

A flagship project for sustainable fuels

“Working with a major industrial company on an emblematic project for the production of green hydrogen in Europe represents a major step forward for McPhy and the green hydrogen sector,” comments Jean-Baptiste Lucas, the company’s CEO. “The significant projects initiated in recent years are now entering the implementation phase, and we have the resources to seize these growth opportunities,” he added.

Djewels is a flagship project for the province of Groningen and the Hydrogen Valley in the north of the Netherlands. Its implementation has been supported by the Waddenfonds regional fund and also by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership (formerly FCH-JU). Besides, the project has applied for a grant from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
