    Plug Power to Build 35TPD Green Hydrogen Plant in Belgium


    June 10, 2022 - Chemical Industry Digest

     

      Plug Power, a leading provider of hydrogen solutions for the worldwide green hydrogen economy, will construct a 35 TPD green hydrogen production facility in Europe’s Port of Antwerp-Bruges.

      Plug signed a 30-year concession agreement to construct the plant in Belgium’s second-largest port. Plug intends to build a 100-megawatt green hydrogen plant on 28 acres of land leased under the arrangement, utilising its own electrolyzer and liquefaction technologies. For the European market, Plug will create up to 12,500 tonnes of liquid and gaseous green hydrogen per year.

      Construction of the plant will begin upon completion of the permitting process, anticipated in late 2023. Initial production of green hydrogen is expected in late 2024, and plant commissioning will be in 2025.

      “As Europe grapples with the challenges of climate change and energy security, our agreement with Port of Antwerp-Bruges will deliver much-needed natively generated, green hydrogen to local markets,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “The energy crisis in Europe resulting from geopolitical risks has accelerated the demand for green hydrogen development projects.”

      Belgium’s Minister of Energy Tinne Van der Straeten said: “Belgium is determined to play a pioneering role in the breakthrough of large-scale green hydrogen. It is an objective that is well reflected in the federal hydrogen vision and strategy ‘Green hydrogen for a clean industry.’ Companies like Plug, who integrate their activities into our federal strategy, are the best example that we are moving in the right direction. This way, we can achieve our climate goals to reduce greenhouse gasses by 55% in 2030 and become the first climate neutral continent by 2050. This will be a strategy that pays off for Belgium, for employment and for the climate.”
