January 23 (Renewables Now) - French hydrogen specialist McPhy Energy SA (EPA:MCPHY) will deliver a 20-MW hydrogen electrolyser for a zero-carbon hydrogen production project in the Netherlands.
McPhy said Wednesday it has been selected by Dutch chemical company Nouryon and state-owned natural gas network operator N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie to equip a hydrogen production plant in Delfzijl.
The project will receive an EUR-11-million (USD 12.2m) grant from the EU-co-founded Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) and EUR 5 million in subsidies from Dutch fund Waddenfonds.
The French company will supply its proprietary electrolyser, called Augmented McLyzer, and integrate it with a 20-MW hydrogen production platform. The future plant will have an output of 3,000 tonnes of clean hydrogen per year, McPhy said, adding that the facility will be the largest zero-carbon hydrogen site in Europe.
