Swedish energy systems maker Metacon AB (NGM:META) has received an order to deliver a 10-MW containerised hydrogen production facility to Romania’s Ground Investment Corp SRL.
The value of the master supply agreement is estimated at around EUR 16.1 million (USD 16.9m), Metacon said on Thursday. Under its terms, Metacon will supply an integrated system consisting of an electrolysis-based hydrogen production unit, a hydrogen compression and storage unit and a fuel-cell facility. A hydrogen refueling station will also be installed as part of the award.
The project will result in the daily production of 4.3 tonnes of green hydrogen. Initially, the plant will have an output of 1.3 tonnes per day, with the production process to be powered by a 30-MW wind farm.
The generated hydrogen will be used to balance the wind power generation and for refuelling purposes, with some of it to be supplied in a compressed form to third parties.
Metacon noted that work under the turnkey contract will be executed in two phases. The first will cover preparatory engineering works, while the second one will be for the delivery and installation works.
The developer is awaiting EU funding for the project’s initial phase.
