Top list of Commercial Electrolyzers for Green Hydrogen Production

Top list of Commercial Electrolyzers for Green Hydrogen Production
source: https://www.forbes.com

Hydrogen produced through the electrolysis of water with renewable electricity is a key branch of the Green Hydrogen concept. PEM electrolysis is widely used for this purpose due to its techno-economic feasibility for commercial projects and scaling up, however, other technologies such as AEM, alkaline and solid oxide electrolyzers are also available in the market as per the special needs of end-users. Since green hydrogen through electrolysis powered by renewable electricity is a trending business today there are many companies out there in the market.  Therefore, it is bit difficult to separate the serious businesses when you are preparing for the procurement process. We hope our list will help you in the desk research which is usually the initial step any smart engineer/executive would involve during the procurement process. The order of the list does not show any superiority. This is a complex business that depends on multiple variables when come to selecting a suitable manufacturer for the electrolyzer for a specific need. Electrolyzers are coming with complicated features and according to business propositions and we hope our list will help you with it. Do not be hesitate to contact us if you need further help.

Key Listing

  1. Siemens Silyzer - Silyzer is the trademark green hydrogen solution of Siemens company where it can scale up to the double-digit megawatt scale. Their electrolyzer is based on the PEM electrolysis as it is with the common trend in the industry. Siemens has a series of electroyers in their portfolio to cater diversified needs of customers, Silyzer 300 is the latest, most powerful product line of siemens of which power consumption varies in range of double-digit megawatt range and production capacity in 100 – 2,000 kg per hour range. Siemens is one of leading PEM electrolyzer manufacturer in the market for Green Hydrogen production.

3. ITM-Power - ITM is one of the best in the market so that they were picked by two leading cooperations for their green hydrogen initiatives; Shell and Linde. Shell is an energy tycoon and Linde is a pioneering gas company in the world. Shell picked an ITM 10 MW electrolyser for their green hydrogen facility at Energy and Chemicals Park Rheinland refinery in Wesseling, Germany with funding from the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU). Linde has formed a joint venture where it focuses on the green hydrogen gas business while ITM is facilitating the process by designing and manufacturing the modular PEM electrolyser.

4.  Nel

Nel’s water electrolysers which are coming in a wide range of operability with power requirements ranging from a few hundred Watts for small electrolyzers, to > 1 MW for larger systems is an ideal solution for many industries including green hydrogen projects. It produces hydrogen on-demand, they can also eliminate the need for stored hydrogen, saving valuable floor space and increasing plant safety. When connected to a source of renewable energy, these electrolysers will produce green hydrogen, reducing your plant’s carbon footprint and impact on the environment.

  • Based on Alkaline and Proton® PEM technologies
  • The safe, clean and cost-effective operation which is environmentally friendly
  • Consistent purity and pressure of the generated hydrogen
  • Eliminate hazardous hydrogen delivery and storage
  • Scalability to match your operational needs
