John Cockerill will supply Air Liquide with 25 MW of electrolysers for the Taiwanese market. With this contract, John Cockerill, a major player in the production of hydrogen by electrolysis of water, strengthens its position among the world leaders in green hydrogen and, moreover, in energy transition.
This order took place in two stages: 3 stacks of 5 megawatts each in January and 2 additional stacks in July, bringing the total capacity to 25 megawatts. These 5 large electrolysers will be installed at 2 production sites in Taiwan and will serve the semiconductor industry. They will transform water into ultra-pure hydrogen at a rate of 5,000 Nm3 / hour.
The electrolysis of water enables the production of hydrogen with raw materials from fossil fuels. Since these electrolysers will be partly powered by renewable energy, they will avoid an estimated annual emission of 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Raphaël Tilot, Renewable Energies Manager at John Cockerill: “With a total capacity of 34 megawatts already sold this year, we are confirming our pole position in the green hydrogen market, particularly in the field of large electrolysers. Today, we offer our customers a wide range of electrolysers with a capacity of up to 5 MW per unit. Our ambition is clearly to meet the growing demand for large-scale production of green hydrogen at competitive prices. In a post-Covid-19 world facing challenges of unprecedented magnitude, we are convinced that green hydrogen, a zero-carbon energy, must play a larger share in the global energy mix. As a leader in this field,
This Taiwanese contract follows a series of orders in areas as diverse as methanol production, decentralized energy production, silicon manufacturing and mobility.
