November 16 (Renewables Now) - TigerGenCo LLC (TGC), the operator of the Bayonne Energy Center in New Jersey, has teamed up with NovoHydrogen to develop a 120-MW green hydrogen project to cut the Bayonne plant’s reliance on natural gas.
On and off-site renewable hydrogen solutions developer NovoHydrogen said in a statement that it will develop and operate the hydrogen production facility. The output will be used as a zero-carbon replacement fuel for some of the gas usage at this particular peaking power plant.
Separately, electrolysis specialist Ohmium International Inc announced it will deliver 120 MW of its modular Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysers for the project.
NovoHydrogen noted that while Bayonne's carbon emissions will be reduced, the plant will continuing to provide reliable electricity supply to the New York Metro area.
TigerGenCo, part of Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners, acquired the 644-MW Bayonne Energy Center in 2018 from Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation for the sum of USD 900 million (EUR 864.4m) in cash and assumed debt.
