McPhy awarded contract for 4 electrolysers in Germany

mcphy electrolysers Germany

The French group has been selected by the Oil & Gas division of HMS in Germany for a 64 MW project. The electrolysers from McPhy will be operated as part of a major hydrogen network connection point at the compressor station in the south-west of Germany.

McPhy ‘s 4 electrolysers (McLyzer 3200-30) will operate at the compressor station in Radeland, Brandenburg (North-Eastern Germany). The station is connected to a network of pipelines stretching from the Baltic Sea to the south-west of Germany. Its strategic position will make this site a key contributor in converting this major pipeline to hydrogen. This is part of the “Flow – making hydrogen happen” project. This large-scale project is the first of its kind in Europe.

Electrolysers produced in McPhy’s gigafactory in Belfort

The order will be placed in two stages. The first stage will involve the supply of a McLyzer 3200-30, with a capacity of 16 MW. It will be commissioned at the end of 2025. The second stage involves the three additional McLyzer 3200-30s. They will be commissioned in 2027. These electrolysers, with a total capacity of 64 MW, will be powered by electricity from a wind farm and photovoltaic plants located near the station. They will produce up to 10,000 tonnes of low-carbon hydrogen per year. The final investment decision for the first phase will be taken in 2024, and for the second phase at the end of 2025.

It should be noted that the electrolysers will be produced at the new Gigafactory in Belfort (Eastern France).
