    Siemens Energy, Air Liquide form hydrogen energy joint venture

    June 23, 2022 - dpa


      ParisGermany's Siemens Energy and Air Liquide of France announced a joint venture on Thursday for the series production of industrial-scale renewable hydrogen electrolysers in Europe.

      Siemens Energy will hold 74.9% and Air Liquide will take 25.1% of the joint venture, which is to be headquartered in Berlin, where the multi-gigawatt factory producing electrolysis modules will be based.

      Production is projected to begin in the second half of 2023 and ramp up to an annual production capacity of three gigawatts by 2025.

      “We want to be a driving force in hydrogen technology,” said Siemens Energy CEO Christian Bruch.

      The joint venture is a "major step towards the emergence of a leading European renewable and low-carbon hydrogen ecosystem," added Air Liquide CEO François Jackow.

      The companies noted that the strategic partnership will benefit from a portfolio of hydrogen projects combining both Air Liquide and Siemens Energy's pipelines, targeting large industrial-scale hydrogen projects.

      One of the first projects is the Air Liquide Normand'Hy electrolyzer project, with a capacity of 200 megawatts.

      On Wednesday meanwhile, Siemens Gamesa, the energy giant's Spanish-based wind power subsidiary, said it had been awarded the contract to deliver 60 of its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines for a Scottish wind power project.

      The Moray West project will be located more than 22 km from the Moray Council coast in the north-east of Scotland.

      "We're proud to supply all 180 108 meter-long blades for the Moray West order from the expanded plant, said Marc Becker, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit.

      The aim is to install the first machines in 2024, with power production expected to begin in 2024.
