Air Products and Thyssenkrupp sign agreement for green hydrogen production

Article by Amanda Doyle


AIR Products and Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers have signed a strategic cooperation agreement (SCA) to collaborate on electrolysis plants to generate green hydrogen.

Thyssenkrupp will use its industrial-scale electrolysis technology in plants to be built and owned by Air Products. Thyssenkrupp will supply engineering, equipment, and technical services for the water electrolysis plants, allowing Air Products to use green hydrogen as an energy carrier for transportation, chemicals, and power generation.        

Denis Krude, CEO at Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, said: “Large-scale electrolysis is the key technology to connect renewable power to the different sectors of mobility and industry. As a world market leader in electrolysis we bring in both: technology and production capacity at scale. Already today, we are set to supply one gigawatt for water electrolysis plants per year, and we are prepared to ramp up the capacity in this rapidly-evolving market.”

Samir Serhan, Chief Operating Officer at Air Products, said: “The SCA with Thyssenkrupp is an important element of our value chain in developing, building, owning and operating world-scale projects and supplying green hydrogen for mobility, energy and industrial applications. We look forward to applying our complementary strengths and delivering substantial sustainability benefits through transformational green hydrogen projects.”
