Sunfire receives purchase order for 100 MW pressurized alkaline electrolyzer

Sunfire has secured a contract to supply a 100 MW alkaline electrolyzer to a European refinery. The purchase order includes ten 10 MW modules of Sunfire’s pressurized alkaline electrolysis technology as well as the power supply units. The electrolyzer is planned to commence operation in 2026.

Earlier this year, the company launched its scaling strategy with the official opening of its industrial serial electrolyzer production in Solingen, Germany.

“Now we are ready to deliver on large scale projects,” said Sunfire CEO Nils Aldag. “Signing this 100 MW contract marks a key milestone for Sunfire as it is our first commercial order from a leading refinery in Europe. Refineries are at the forefront of decarbonizing their operations through green hydrogen and hence are one of our strategic target sectors.”

The company’s pressurized alkaline electrolysis delivers green hydrogen at a high pressure of 30 bar(g). Due to this feature, customers save on compressor and operating costs as less compression is required to further utilize the green hydrogen.
