German steel producer Thyssenkrupp said Monday it would implement its first green hydrogen project and install a water electrolysis plant with a capacity of 88 megawatt (MW) for the Canadian energy company Hydro-Quebec.
Thyssenkrupp subsidiary Uhde Chlorine Engineers was awarded an engineering contract following the successful completion of a feasibility study. The plant would be “one of the world’s first and biggest production facilities for green hydrogen,” Thyssenkrupp said.
After the startup scheduled for late 2023, the water electrolysis plant planned for construction in Varennes, Canada, would produce 11,100 metric tons of green hydrogen annually, according to the German company.
Both the hydrogen and the oxygen, produced as a by-product in the electrolysis process, would be used in a biofuel plant to produce biofuels from residual waste for the transport sector, it added.
According to Thyssenkrupp, water electrolysis is a “key technology for decarbonizing the industrial sector.”
