Clean Power Hydrogen, the Doncaster-based manufacturer of the unique Membrane-Free Electrolyser, is pleased to announce that it has won an order from Octopus Hydrogen, for the supply of a 1MW electrolyser.
The order is a significant milestone for Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) as it is the first 1MW electrolyser the company has supplied to a UK based hydrogen production and supply company, further supporting the high-level of interest in the company’s patented Membrane-Free Electrolyser™
William Rowe, CEO and Founder of Octopus Hydrogen, said: “Our focus is on delivering green hydrogen to the sectors which cannot be decarbonised by batteries alone, mainly aviation and heavy-duty road vehicles. We are establishing a decentralised production of green hydrogen via electrolysis, co-located with renewable energy generation, with localised distribution. CPH2’s simple design and unique approach to fuel cell grade hydrogen production, it’s UK based manufacturing and fantastic culture and team are a great partner for us on this journey.”
Jon Duffy, CEO of CPH2, said: “We are excited to be working with such an innovative and environmentally aware energy supplier, as Octopus Hydrogen. This order marries perfectly with our sustainability ethos to manufacture carbon-friendly technology.”
The 1MW Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ is due for delivery to Octopus Hydrogen’s site in late 2021. Producing up to 451kg/H2 per day the system incorporates cryogenic separation technology to generate hydrogen with a purity of up to 99.999% and oxygen of up to 99.5% which is suitable for medical use.
Octopus Hydrogen, an Octopus Energy Group company, is positioned to supply ‘green hydrogen as a service’ for heavy goods transportation, energy storage, industrial applications, and aviation in UK, Europe, and Australia, with the first kilos of green hydrogen to be sold in 2021. The intent is to remove the infrastructure cost and complexity from the end-user and accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen as a fuel.
Octopus Hydrogen will bring Octopus Energy’s unrivaled customer-centric approach to the green hydrogen supply market. With the recent acquisition of Octopus Renewables and the world-leading Kraken platform, the Group is uniquely positioned to drive down costs and help customers drive the transition to a competitive and 100% green economy.
Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) is a leading developer of Membrane-Free Electrolysers™ designed to produce green hydrogen and pure oxygen in a simple, safe, sustainable manner and at any scale.
Dr. Nigel Williamson and Joe Scott established CPH2 (Ireland) in December 2012 with the ambition to help clean up the environment for our children and future generations. Entering the green technology sector, a high growth, and profitable market, they developed a Membrane-Free Electrolyser™ to produce hydrogen faster, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than PEM technology, which has barriers to adoption, including cost, reliability, and scalability.
Hydrogen is widely recognised as being the green fuel of the future. It will enable populations and countries to attain true net-zero carbon status. CPH2 realised that the cleanest way to produce hydrogen was by membrane-free water electrolysis using cryogenic separation, and in doing so, it would be less expensive and more robust technology.
The company opened its Technology Innovation Centre in Doncaster, South Yorkshire in 2018 and were winners of the ‘Hydrogen & Fuel Cells’ category at the Rushlight Awards 2020
