Editor’s note: Equipment of this sort is essential for generating hydrogen afor fuel cells which are probably better suited for powering trucks and busses than batteries. That is the application here. Of course, the ideal power source for this equipment would be wind-generated electricity.
Proton OnSite, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nel ASA, Olso Norway says it has received an order for the fourth M Series, Megawatt scale hydrogen electrolyzers in a thirteen M Series delivery agreement with Guangdong Synergy
Hydrogen Power Technology Co., Ltd. (“Synergy”). The original agreement between Proton OnSite and Synergy for 13 PEM (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane) megawatt systems, and naming Proton as the exclusive supplier of electrolyzers to Synergy, has a total value including installation and associated services of just over $22 million. Installations and commissioning of the remaining units are planned for Q4, 2017 and through CY 2018.
“We are pleased to have received another follow-on order under the exclusive agreement with Synergy. This continues to show the strong partnership for our hydrogen electrolyzers for FCEV bus fueling with Synergy and the Yunfu government in the Guangdong Province of China. We are well poised to support the hydrogen needs for the rapidly growing commitments being made in China for heavy duty fuel cell trucks and busses while working on also supplying our complete hydrogen refueling solutions to the Chinese market,” says David Bow, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
