International deployment for green hydrogen producer’s technology
Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2), a Doncaster-based green hydrogen technology and manufacturing company, has struck a deal with fellow Yorkshire firm ATOME Energy for the sale of a 1MW Membrane Free Electrolyser (MFE) 220 unit.
The unit will be delivered at the end of this year and deployed in ATOME’s Paraguay mobility project.
In addition, CPH2 and ATOME have said they intend to collaborate on potential future orders of electrolyser units for Leeds-based ATOME’s international hydrogen and ammonia projects.
They will also investigate a potential joint venture for the future production of electrolysers to serve the Latin American market using CPH2’s technology and know-how. ATOME has confirmed it expects further orders will follow in due course.
CPH2’s MFE220 product is capable of producing 450kg/day of green hydrogen, while its next generation system – MFE440 – currently in the final stages of concept design and layout will be capable of producing 900kg/day of green hydrogen. The business floated on the AIM market in February, raising gross proceeds of £30.5m before expenses to build out its manufacturing operations.
ATOME, which listed on the AIM market late last year having spun out of President Energy , is an international company focused on green hydrogen and ammonia production with advanced plans for 350-megawatt projects in Paraguay and Iceland.
In a further update to the market ATOME said it had begun operational planning, sourcing and negotiations with EPC contractors, green electricity suppliers, equipment providers and offtake partners.
The business says its Paraguay operation supports the drive by the president and government of the country to decarbonise transport, which has been given extra emphasis due to the “sky-rocketing” costs of fossil fuels.
Jon Duffy, chief executive officer of CPH2, said: “The addition of a new international customer to our order book is further validation of the technology that CPH2 has developed.
“Our Membrane-Free Electrolyser has many benefits, it being low-cost, scalable, flexible, safe, and reliable, and can produce green hydrogen anywhere in the world.
“We very much look forward to working with the ATOME team in delivering the first commercial production of green hydrogen for transport in Paraguay and to an ongoing partnership in the South America region.
Olivier Mussat, CEO of ATOME, added: “After a lengthy procurement process we have chosen to work with CPH2 because the product perfectly fits our requirements and we are very impressed with its simple yet effective technology as well as the expertise and transparency of the management of CPH2.
“We can produce green hydrogen from an electrolyser which is easy and quick to install, safe, durable, flexible, scalable and which releases no waste water.
“We likewise look forward to an ongoing partnership with CPH2 in the South America region.”
