Air Products and thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers on Sunday revealed an exclusive collaboration in key regions to use their complementary technology, engineering and project execution strengths to develop projects supplying green hydrogen.

Under a Strategic Cooperation Agreement (SCA), thyssenkrupp will deliver its technology and supply specific engineering, equipment and technical services for water electrolysis plants to be built, owned and operated by Air Products.

The collaboration leverages thyssenkrupp’s technology supporting Air Products’ development of green hydrogen as an energy carrier for sustainable transportation, chemicals and power generation.

“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,” said Dr. Samir J. Serhan, Chief Operating Officer at Air Products.

“Large-scale electrolysis is the key technology to connect renewable power to the different sectors of mobility and industry,” said Denis Krude, CEO at thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers.

“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.”

Matching the need for low-CAPEX, low-OPEX, reliable technology and solid project execution to make world-scale green hydrogen projects feasible, Air Products and thyssenkrupp are committed to deploying economic green hydrogen plants in the gigawatt size.
