Hydrogen Projects: Nel ASA Successful in Spain and the USA

Oslo, Norway - Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser, a division of Nel ASA, has signed a letter of intent with Ibedrola of Spain. The subject of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is to cooperate in the development of an environmentally friendly hydrogen production plant with a capacity of more than 200 MW in Spain by 2023.

As part of this MoU, Iberdrola and Nel also plan to jointly develop a green hydrogen technology value chain in Spain.

In early November 2020, Iberdrola announced plans to develop an 800 MW green hydrogen project for the production of green ammonia with the Spanish fertilizer manufacturer Fertiberia. Shortly afterwards, Nel and Iberdrola announced that Nel would be the preferred partner for the supply of a 20 MW PEM electrolysis plant in Puertollano, Spain. The 20 MW plant is expected to be operational as early as 2021. It is then planned to expand capacity to 200 MW by 2023.

In the USA, Nel Hydrogen U.S., a subsidiary of Nel ASA, has received an order from a major industrial customer to supply a 1.5 M-PEM electrolyser. The order is valued at approximately $2.7 million and the hydrogen electrolyser will be installed in 2021.
