Green Ammonia - Nel ASA Receives Purchase Order For an Alkaline Electrolyser

Oslo, Norway - Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has received a purchase order for an alkaline electrolyser system from Skovgaard Energy Aps in Lemvig in Western Jutland, Denmark. The electrolyser system will be used for production of green ammonia.

The green ammonia plant, to be built by Skovgaard Energy and their Danish project partners, Topsoe and Vestas, will be the world’s first dynamic green ammonia plant, where renewable electricity from wind and solar will be connected directly to the electrolyser.

This is a demo plant that will test how an ammonia reactor can fluctuate operations based on renewable power input. This will be important learning prior to scaling for future large-scale power-to-X and green ammonia plants.

“We are thrilled for this project, which will be an important milestone in the green transition as it showcases green hydrogen production into green ammonia directly from renewable sources. Skovgaard Energy is an exciting client, and we look forward to continue a fruitful relationship with the company and partners“, says Henning Langås, Senior Tender Manager of Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser.
