McPhy has signed an exclusive supply agreement of advanced electrode packages with its technological partner De Nora.

Under the frame of the joint development agreement signed in 2015, McPhy and De Nora have equipped the high pressure alkaline water electrolysis process of McPhy with advanced electrodes packages engineered by De Nora and successfully validated a new generation of alkaline water electrolysis. 

The cutting-edge electrolysis technology offers high-power efficiency with operating current density up to 10KA, very large electrolysis platforms – 20 MW to 100 MW and over, and drastic footprint reduction.

Pascal Mauberger, McPhy’s Chairman and CEO, stated, “In the very favourable context of the massive deployment of hydrogen (H2), we are delighted to announce the launch of this new generation of electrolysers thanks to our technological partnership with De Nora.”

“We demonstrate our commitment to stay at the cutting edge of the H2 technology and to meet the markets needs for more efficient, competitive and environmental friendly electrolysers.”

“This contributes to reinforce our competitive advantage. Our technologies and industrial infrastructure are ready for the ‘scaling up’ that was predicted in the study conducted by the Hydrogen Council.”

Luca Buonerba, De Nora’s Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, added, “The unparalleled expertise and market position of De Nora in industrial electrochemistry, backed by our strong focus on R&D, together with the excellent collaboration established with McPhy has been the right springboard for developing a solution with unique features that represents a key milestone in innovation of alkaline water electrolysis.”

“It improves significantly the value proposition to clients increasing the technological content while lowering operating costs. After three years of development, we demonstrate our capacity to accelerate the pace of innovation by launching ready-to-use products in line with clients’ expectations. Our factories are ready to manufacture large quantities of electrodes for water electrolysis and are ready for the H2 economy revolution”
