H-TEC SYSTEMS to deliver PEM electrolyzer to Spanish project developer SailH2

A 1-MW PEM electrolyzer ME450 of the German electrolyzer manufacturer H-TEC SYSTEMS will be utilized in the strategic green H2 pilot project, HUB LA ISLA H2 in the region of Sevilla, Andalusia by SailH2. The Spanish green H2 project developer will invest €25 MM into building a pilot center for the production and distribution of green H2 and has ordered the ME450 PEM electrolyzer to produce up to 136 tpy of green H2 in combination with a 1.5 MW PV plant in the first phase of the project.

The pilot project will be the first commercial hub of green H2 in Andalucía and will be located at the industrial site Poligono Industrial Isla in Dos Hermanas, a city district of Sevilla. H-TEC SYSTEMS will deliver the electrolyzer in September 2024, while the overall site construction works will be finalized by Q3 2024.

The innovative project HUB LA ISLA H2 will examine a variety of different applications for green H2, such as power-to-mobility, power-to-industry and power-to-gas in the 4 MW–20 MW range. The H-TEC SYSTEMS PEM electrolyzer will be applied in the initial phase of the green H2 hub Phase 1 Power-to-Mobility, including a production capacity of 1 MW of green H2. The green H2 is intended for use in mobility applications, such as fueling light and heavy vehicles as well as for industrial mobility applications (e.g., for fueling forklift trucks). An essential element is the construction and operation of a H2 refueling station (dual dispenser 350 bar and 700 bar) coupled with the deployment of H2 tube trailer vehicles.

During this initial project phase, SailH2 with the support of Agencia IDAE through the Moves Singulares II grant, will combine1 MW of hydrolysis power with 1.5 MW photovoltaic power, produced at a near-site PV plant. The H2 plant utilizing the PEM electrolyzer will produce up to 136 tpy of green H2. This will help to reduce the CO2 emissions in the region by more than 3.500 tons. After the successful completion of phase 1, in 2025, phase 2 will explore the production and distribution of 680 tons of H2 for decarbonizing local industrial production processes with an electrolysis power of 5 MW.

“We chose the ME450 PEM electrolyzer for our project because it is a proven product with best-in-class performance that eliminates the risk of power supply fluctuations in our project. With its strong technology and service capacities through the international service network of MAN, H-TEC SYSTEMS is the most competent and reliable partner for the next phases of our project,” said Eduardo Almagro, CEO of SailH2, and CEO of H2Green La Isla.

“In the innovative regional H2 hub project, our electrolyzer is used to supply local mobility projects for decarbonizing the industry. We are very pleased to be a technology partner for this future-oriented project and to actively contribute to the energy transition in Spain,” said Jorge Menéndez García, Sales Manager at H-TEC SYSTEMS.
