Ohmium to provide 10MW PEM electrolyzers for Croatia's first green hydrogen project

Advanced proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer manufacturer, Ohmium has been selected to equip the first green hydrogen project in Croatia led by IVICOM and supported by INA and the Croatian government.

Ohmium will supply the PEM electrolyzer for IVICOM, a leading Croatian engineering and construction company for a 10MW green hydrogen plant project at the INA Rijeka Refinery. The project will pair Ohmium's PEM electrolyzers with a new solar power plant to produce green hydrogen to help decarbonize the refinery and supply sustainable fuel for Croatia's growing transportation market.

"The green hydrogen installation at the Rijeka Refinery will be a premier example of the green transition in Europe," said Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium.

"Ohmium is pleased to be working with leaders such as IVICOM and INA on this pioneering project, as our PEM electrolyzers are uniquely suited for pairing with solar power for promoting refinery decarbonization and green transportation."

The green hydrogen plant and the solar plant will be supported by the the Croatian government's Recovery and Resilience Facility, which incorporates measures to improve the sustainability and diversity of EU members' energy supplies.

The project is also expected to help meet Croatia's National Hydrogen strategy goals of installation of 70 MW of hydrogen production facilities by 2030, to be ramped up to 2750 MW by 2050 to help achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

"The synergy between IVICOM's engineering expertise and Ohmium's cutting-edge PEM electrolyzer technology will be key to successful project realization," said Dinko Čondić, President of IVICOM's Management Board.

"This partnership is in line with our company vision of prioritizing green projects and green hydrogen innovation for a sustainable future."
