ABB has been awarded two major contracts by Plug Power to provide the electrical systems for two new hydrogen plants in North America.
This will allow the provider of turnkey solutions for the global green hydrogen economy to collectively produce 60 tons of green hydrogen per day.
The first plant, Project Gateway, in Genesee County, New York, will be North America’s largest green hydrogen production facility, providing the north eastern US daily with 45 metric tons of green liquid hydrogen.
ABB will provide the full electrical system encased in an ABB eHouse solution – a prefabricated, walk-in, modular outdoor substation hosting a range of electrical, automation and ancillary equipment that provides the site and process power.
ABB will also supply gas and air insulated switchgear, low voltage motor control centers, along with low voltage variable speed drives for auxiliary applications. “Plug Power’s investment in both the Project Gateway and Peachtree facilities shows our commitment to the region, our customers, and the future world we want to live in,” said Sanjay Shrestha, general manager of Energy Solutions and chief strategy officer of Plug Power.
“ABB showed the focus, understanding and expertise to execute a successful project, and we look forward to collaborating on driving the broader hydrogen economy.”
“Green hydrogen will only become a widespread clean energy carrier if industry can scale up technologies and bring the overall production costs down,” said Brandon Spencer, president, ABB Energy Industries.
“ABB’s goal is to help make hydrogen accessible as quickly and cost-effectively as possible to meet the growing global demand. We are proud to collaborate with Plug Power on their vision to build a resilient hydrogen ecosystem across North America.”
