September 14 (Renewables Now) - Enapter AG (ETR:H2O) today broke ground on a facility in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, where it plans to eventually mass-produce 10,000 Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) electrolysers a month.

The EUR-105-million (USD 124m) Enapter Campus will be built in the climate community of Saerbeck and will run solely on locally-generated renewable energy. The 82,000-square-metre (882,641 sq ft) site will accommodate equipment for the production of electrolysers, warehouse storage capacity and offices, as well as research and development (R&D) laboratories. Goldbeck is the construction partner for this project.

"To massively reduce the costs for green hydrogen production and reach global climate goals, we now need to scale existing technologies at speed,” CEO Sebastian-Justus Schmidt said in his opening speech at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Enapter expects to make first customer deliveries from mass production in 2023.
