Plug Power has announced it has signed a long-term hydrogen distribution agreement with Praxair, one of the largest industrial gases companies in the world and North America’s largest liquid hydrogen producer.

The agreement pairs Plug Power’s GenFuel hydrogen fuelling infrastructure solution with Praxair’s liquid hydrogen supply capability helping customers realize productivity and environmental benefits.

Plug Power will offer Praxair hydrogen to its customers throughout the United States who are using the company’s GenKey hydrogen fuel cell solution.
