March 28 (Renewables Now) - Danish renewables developer European Energy A/S has placed an order for a 3-MW electrolyser with compatriot Stiesdal A/S that will enable it to supply green hydrogen to the Port of Esbjerg.
The unit will be installed at European Energy’s 12-MW green hydrogen production complex in Maade, Esbjerg. The renewables group said on Monday that the electrolyser will be the first one that will be tested at the proposed Power-to-X site.
The electrolyser will be delivered by the Danish technology provider’s subsidiary Stiesdal Hydrogen. The unit, which will use conventional alkaline electrolysis, will facilitate the production of roughly 270 tonnes of hydrogen annually.
European Energy started building the Maade Power-to-X plant at the end of 2022 and intends to launch production this year. The company previously said it would aim at completing the project and start delivering green hydrogen to the Port of Esbjerg in the first half of 2023. A supply contract with the port was signed in the summer of last year.
