ITM Power appointed by Hygen Energy as preferred supplier of PEM electrolysers for projects in UK and Europe

ITM Power has been appointed by Hygen Energy, a developer, producer, and asset owner of low-carbon hydrogen production facilities in the UK and Europe, as the preferred supplier of PEM electrolysers for hydrogen projects within the UK and across wider Europe.

The collaboration will consist of two phases. Phase 1 is expected to include 50 MW of NEPTUNE Plug & Play electrolysers across several projects, many of which will be based on UK government HAR2 or similar funding programmes. Phase 2 is expected to include 150 MW of larger-scale modular POSEIDON electrolysers.

Jamie Burns, Director of Hygen, commented: “We are determined to lead from the front when it comes to developing and delivering low-carbon hydrogen projects. In order to build this critical infrastructure, we need ambitious partners such as ITM which has impressed us with its focus on the manufacture of quality UK-built products. Hygen’s intent is to deliver low-carbon hydrogen projects in the near term, giving the UK’s net-zero industry a valuable boost.”

Dennis Schulz, CEO of ITM, said: “Our collaboration with Hygen is an important milestone for both companies and for the UK. We are looking forward to working in partnership with Hygen and its group companies Ryze Hydrogen and Wrightbus over the coming years, together playing a leading role in advancing the green hydrogen economy.”
