HydrogenPro and Hynion enter into collaboration agreements on green hydrogen supply to fueling stations
April 23, 2021 – HydrogenPro AS and Hynion AS have signed two collaboration agreements as follows:
- HydrogenPro will supply hydrogen to Hynion’s fueling station at Herøya in Porsgrunn; and
- HydrogenPro and Hynion will initiate a general co-operation for the supply of future Hynion installations.
1. Supply of hydrogen to Hynion´s fueling station at Herøya Industripark in Porsgrunn, Norway
HydrogenPro will supply green hydrogen to Hynion´s fueling station at Herøya Industripark from two of its test and demo electrolyser containers located nearby. At full production, these containers will produce about 120 kg of hydrogen per day, and HydrogenPro and Hynion have entered into an agreement for the offtake of hydrogen at commercial terms.
HydrogenPro is designing a new demo facility of 1MW, also to be located at Herøya Industripark as part of a larger program to verify its technologies. This demo facility will be designed and built with new technologies currently being introduced by HydrogenPro, including full scale electrodes with the novel surface treatment technology. The plan is to have this larger demo facility installed by year end 2021.
With these installations at Herøya Industripark, HydrogenPro will be able to operate, test, demonstrate and optimize its latest electrolyser technologies.
Once all these facilities are in production, the total output will be about 500 kg hydrogen per day.
Hynion will expand the capacity of its plant, as well as further develop the station for truck refueling and a filling plant for transport containers. Hynion will use the hydrogen at its station on Herøya and transport surpluses to other facilities. The facility will function as a demonstration facility where both parties will bring visitors to showcase the technology and system.
The parties will, together with Industrial Green Tech, apply for Enova grants as part of a larger project in the Grenland area.
2. General collaboration agreement
HydrogenPro’s principal business is to provide customized turn-key plants for large-scale production of green hydrogen world-wide while Hynion builds and operates hydrogen stations in and around the largest cities in Scandinavia, with further expansion plans in Europe.
The parties will collaborate on defined projects that are suitable for cooperation where HydrogenPro will deliver large-scale hydrogen production plants. These will serve as production hubs to Hynion’s further distribution to its hydrogen stations across different geographies.
HydrogenPro will be Hynion’s preferred supplier of electrolysers where HydrogenPro has facilities that suit the purpose, and Hynion will be HydrogenPro’s preferred supplier of hydrogen stations where Hynion has facilities that suit the purpose.
Mårten Lunde, CEO of HydrogenPro, states that “We are delighted to initiate a collaboration with Hynion based on a relationship which dates back several years. There’s a clear mutual win situation to co-operate at Herøya and within the Industrial Green Tech cluster at Herøya Industripark. Our focus on large scale industrial applications remain unchanged and we look forward to working with Hynion in its ambition to build a centralized system of hydrogen production for further distribution to its network of fueling stations.”
