McPhy awarded contract by HMS Oil and Gas for supply of four McLyzer 3200-30 electrolyzers

McPhy Energy has signed a contract with Berlin-based HMS Oil and Gas division to supply and commission four McLyzer 3200-30 electrolyzers, with a capacity totaling 64 MW. These units will be operated as part of a major tie-in point for the hydrogen grid at the Radeland compression station in Brandenburg.

The contract is structured in two phases. The first phase involves supplying and commissioning one McLyzer 3200-30 unit with a 16 MW capacity, expected to be operational by the end of 2025. The second phase includes three additional McLyzer 3200-30 units, scheduled for commissioning in 2027. Together, these electrolyzers will be powered by electricity from nearby wind parks and photovoltaic plants, producing up to 10,000 tons of low-carbon hydrogen annually. The final investment decisions for phase I and phase II are set for 2024 and the end of 2025, respectively.

The electrolyzers will operate on the Radeland compression station, Brandenburg, which is connected to a pipeline network connection, going from the Baltic Sea to the Southwest of Germany. Its strategic position will make this site a key contributor to the hydrogen conversion of this important natural gas pipeline into a major hydrogen pipelines, as part of the project “Flow – making hydrogen happen”.

McPhy has planned to start manufacturing the McLyzer 3200-30 at its new Gigafactory in Belfort with the design and engineering of very high-capacity electrolysis systems in the framework of this contract. Production of stacks will be supported by the San Miniato plant in Italy. Additionally, McPhy will provide long-term maintenance services.

Jean-Baptiste Lucas, CEO of McPhy, commented: “We are thrilled to announce the signing of a major contract with HMS Oil and Gas division in Germany for the supply and commissioning of four McLyzer 3200-30 with a capacity totaling 64 MW. McPhy once again reveals its ability to support its partners in their quest for energy transition by taking part with HMS to a large-scale project, which will highly contribute to hydrogen ramp up across Europe. With the upcoming launch of our Gigafactory, we look forward to ultimately support other key milestone projects across the region and thus further harnessing the power of hydrogen.”

Dennis Schwind, CEO of HMS Bergbau AG, said: “As a Berlin-based and globally active company, HMS Bergbau AG is always endeavoring to provide suitable energy solutions for all regions of the world. In addition, of course we also have a very special interest in helping to shape the changing energy environment here on our doorstep with a project of this kind.”
