The company announces the construction of a new state-of-the-art green hydrogen production facility and electric substation in the New York Science, Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Park (STAMP). As North America’s largest green hydrogen production facility, the plant will produce 45 metric tons of green liquid hydrogen daily servicing the Northeast region. The plant will use 120 MW of Plug’s state-of-the-art PEM electrolyzers to make the hydrogen using clean NY hydropower.
The New York plant comes in addition to an existing Tennessee plant in a network that aims to supply 500 tons per day of green hydrogen by 2025 (1,000 tons per day globally by 2028 and that when fully built will offer a fuel pricing competitive to diesel). This $290 million investment in green hydrogen production leads the way to decarbonizing freight-transportation and logistics and supports the Empire State’s path to achieving carbon-neutrality by 2050. The project includes a 450 MW electrical substation that will service the entire STAMP site.
“Plug Power’s future rightfully revolves around building the green hydrogen economy,” said Andy Marsh, CEO for Plug Power.
