Electrolyser Sale to Linde for H2Pioneer in Austria First project in Austria and first in the semiconductor industry

Monday, 19 April 2021 12:47

ITM Power is pleased to announce the sale of a HGas3SP (2MW) electrolyser and supporting equipment to Linde plc for the publicly funded H2Pioneer project in Austria.  One of the main goals of the H2Pioneer project is demonstrating the production of green hydrogen on-site to be used in semiconductor production, mostly replacing the supply of liquified hydrogen delivered in trailers.


The HGas3SP (2MW) electrolyser system will not only produce green hydrogen – after further purification by Linde, the hydrogen produced will be ultra-pure for semiconductor manufacture.   The use of electrolysis simplifies downstream hydrogen purification and minimises delivery logistics while helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the hydrogen supply chain.


Commenting, Dr Graham Cooley, ITM Power CEO said: "We are delighted to announce this project, our first in Austria and our first for the semiconductor industry.  We will work very closely with our key partner Linde and it is pleasing that this first sale to Austria also takes us into a new industry.”
