Linde and Beijing Green Hydrogen Technology Development, a subsidiary of China Power International Development, will jointly promote the application and development of green hydrogen in China as part of a new deal.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the two companies will collaborate on a variety of green hydrogen initiatives, including hydrogen technology research and development, and the implementation of green hydrogen mobility solutions during China’s inaugural hosting of the 2022 Winter Olympics.

“Sustainability is a key priority for Linde and our mission is making our world more productive,” said Sanjiv Lamba, Linde’s Executive Vice-President and CEO Asia Pacific.

“Linde is a global leader in hydrogen technology and mobility solutions, and we look forward to collaborating with China Power to develop local green hydrogen and clean energy solutions to support China’s energy transition.”

Tian Jun, Party Secretary, Chairman of the Board and President of China Power International Development, commented, “Linde is widely recognised for its sustainability agenda and is the industry leader in hydrogen technology and mobility solutions.”

“We are delighted to partner with Linde to pilot the application of green hydrogen at the Winter Olympics, and work towards establishing a model for China’s transition to clean energy.”

Linde has installed over 180 hydrogen refuelling stations worldwide for cars, buses, trucks and trains, and operates 80 hydrogen electrolysis plants, as well as what it claims to be the “world’s first” high-purity hydrogen storage cavern.
