Enapter wins order for South Korea green hydrogen project in South Korea


Energy technology specialist Enapter AG (Enapter) and its Korea-based technology partner YEST has received an order from South Korea for the deliver of two AEM electrolysers with a total capacity of two megawatts, to be used in a 12.5 MW hydrogen pilot project on Jeju Island.

Supported by the South Korean Ministry of Industry and Trade (Motie) with 62 billion South Korean won ($43.3m), the project aims to investigate and compare hydrogen production with ifferent electrolysis technologies.

The systems supplied by Enapter – the only European company selected for the project – are expected to produce more than 1,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year.

Technology partner YEST will carry out installation of the electrolysers, which Sebastian-Just Schmidt, CEO of Enapter, called ‘the building block’ on the global path to carbon neutrality, adding, “Korea is one of the world’s leading countries in the field of green hydrogen. We are all the more pleased to expand our partnershpi with YEST and intensify our cooperation.”
