On the 18th of August, the construction work will begin on Europe’s currently largest electrolysis plant for the production and storage of green hydrogen: the HySynergy plant in Fredericia. The plant is located next to Crossbridge Energy’s refinery. This writes Everfuel in a press release.
Everfuel states that the building permit has been granted for the construction of a 20MW plant, which will be ready by mid-2022. The plant will produce approx. 8 tonnes of green hydrogen per day and has a storage capacity of 10 tonnes. In the second phase, the HySynergy plant will be expanded to 300MW.
Jakob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, says: ”The building permit takes us one step closer to reducing CO2-emmissions and supporting the green transition through industrial-scale production of green hydrogen. In Everfuel we are leading the green transition – we are taking the challenging steps and moving from drawing board to reality. Starting construction of the largest electrolyzer in Europe is a significant step for Everfuel, but our ambitions are much beyond the 20MW electrolyzer in Phase I, as we are already now advanced in the planning of 300 MW in Phase II. We look forward to the cooperation with an experienced contractor such as CJ, which will be instrumental for building a facility the size of HySynergy on time and budget.”
