Europe's largest Electrolyzer HySynergy successfully tests Hydrogen production

Source: Everfuel

Green hydrogen firm Everfuel recently announced the production of first hydrogen at HySynergy. The initial volumes produced at Europe's largest electrolyser represents a major milestone towards the commercialization of green hydrogen as a clean source of energy for industry and mobility, it added. 

The hydrogen was produced from the first set of electrolyzer stacks as part of the planned start-up and testing of production equipment at the 20 MW HySynergy facility in Fredericia, Denmark. 

According to the company, the start of the commissioning phase was executed as planned, confirming that the electrolyzer, power supply and ancillaries operate as intended. The small amount of hydrogen produced was safely vented into the atmosphere with no environmental impact.

"First hydrogen is a major milestone both for Everfuel and for a greener society. We are executing on our promise to soon bring commercial green hydrogen to the market, and I am grateful to the project team and partners who have worked tirelessly to make this happen on schedule amid a challenging supply chain market," said Jacob Krogsgaard, founder and CEO of Everfuel.

Commercial production is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2023. HySynergy is currently the first large-scale PtX facility in Denmark. Earlier this year, HySynergy was appointed as a Flagship project by Hydrogen Europe as it spearheads the roll-out of large-scale hydrogen implementation in Europe.

The HySynergy project will be developed in stages, with Everfuel planning to add an up to 10 MW test facility, expected to be operational during 2023. It will enable electrolyzer manufacturers to test equipment in a controlled environment.

The test facility will be offered to a shortlisted group of electrolyzer suppliers in the tender for the second phase of HySynergy, for which the project has received DKK 246.3 million in Danish IPCEI funding. Phase two is set to add further 300 MW of capacity in 2025 through the development of three 100 MW sections. The latest funding will be used to finance building the first of the 100 MW sections. 

An accumulated capacity of 1GW has been planned for 2030. HySynergy is a project collaboration between Everfuel, Crossbridge Energy, EWII, TREFOR, Aktive Energi Anlæg, TVIS and ENERGINET. It is a part of the first Everfuel hydrogen hub which are PtX facilities that scale green hydrogen via local value chains for production, distribution and consumption backed by long-term customer agreements.
