Chart Industries will supply Plug Power with two 15 tonnes per day hydrogen liquefaction plants that will be operational in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern US by the end of next year (2022).

The company today (17th March) confirmed receipt of the order that also includes liquid hydrogen storage tanks, and trailer loadout bays. 

“We are proud to be a partner to Plug Power as they execute on their strategic global buildout in the hydrogen industry,” said, Jill Evanko, President and CEO of Chart.

“Their global vision is already demonstrated in the increasing demand for Plug’s hydrogen value chain, and we are pleased to contribute our liquefaction and equipment capabilities to Plug Power’s vision.”

Each of the hydrogen liquefaction plants will feature Chart’s helium refrigeration technology, cold box design, and the associated rotating equipment.

Once delivered and operational, the liquefaction system will utilise gaseous hydrogen from Plug Power’s in-house electrolysers and renewable electricity.

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, added, “We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Chart Industries as we execute on our green hydrogen strategy with plans to produce 1,000 tons of green hydrogen globally by 2028.”
