KOLDING, Denmark — Green Hydrogen Systems (GHS), the industry leader in standardized, modular, next-generation alkaline electrolyzers, has broken ground at the site of its new corporate headquarters.
Measuring 4,000 square meters, the first phase of the combined manufacturing, R&D and office facility will be nearly six times larger than the company’s current premises. In subsequent planned phases, the new HQ will scale to 12,000 square meters – enough space to produce 600 MW a year – as demand for GHS electrolysis continues to grow. At 24,000 square meters, the property where the building will be situated allows for expansion even beyond this.
“A year ago, we had eight employees – now we’re up to 30 and expect to have over 50 by the end of the year,” says Green Hydrogen Systems CEO Niels-Arne Baden. “Our order books are also filling up, and this greatly expanded manufacturing space will make sure we can meet the demand we’re seeing for GHS electrolyzers.”
Scalability was a major factor in choosing the location for the new facility and for its design. “The sustainable energy business sees the value in our systems, which produce green hydrogen efficiently, flexibly and more affordably than anything else out there,” Mr. Baden continues. “Many of the companies we talk to are major players, and they want to be sure we’ll be able to accommodate the steep growth curve, which is why we’ve dimensioned our new facility for serious future expansions well as the growth we’re already seeing.”
GHS’s manufacturing operations will move into the new facility on November 1, 2020, with R&D and administration following over the subsequent few months. Like the company’s present premises, the new facility is located in Kolding, Denmark.
