Arcadia eFuels taps Plug Power for 280 MW electrolyzer system

Arcadia eFuels has selected Plug Power to provide a 280 MW proton exchange membrane electrolyzer system to Arcadia’s Vordingborg plant for the production of sustainable aviation fuel. A FEED study to support an FID has commenced, with the project expected to move to execution phase by mid-2024.

Arcadia eFuels projects a commercial operation date towards the end of 2026.

Harnessing Denmark’s plentiful wind power, Arcadia eFuels Vordingborg site will utilize Plug’s electrolyzer technology to produce approximately 120 tons per day of green hydrogen. The green hydrogen will then be combined with biogenic CO2 to produce syngas. Further processing of the syngas will generate carbon-neutral sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) that meets the requirements of RFNBO (Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin) in preparation for the European Mandates on aviation fuel.

Demand for sustainable aviation fuel is driven by European Commission requirements to supply 70% of fuel consumption at EU (European Union) airports by 2050, with the first mandates starting in 2025.

“This contract with Arcadia eFuels establishes us as the preferred provider for green hydrogen solutions that decarbonize the hydrocarbon fuel sector,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Arcadia eFuels as they pursue plans for rapid growth and expansion.”

“The global demand for eFuels continues to grow, and in order to meet these demands, we must build production plants at commercial scale,” said Amy Hebert, CEO of Arcadia eFuels. “Our partnership with Plug is crucial to ensuring that our commercial facilities will be able produce clean, green, decarbonized fuel for the aviation and logistics verticals.”
