RWE and Linde collaborate to construct 200-MW electrolyzer facility in Germany

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

RWE AG, a German energy company, is collaborating with Linde Plc, an industrial chemicals and engineering firm, on the development of a 200-MW electrolysis facility in western Germany, as part of a strategy to increase the site's green hydrogen production capacity to 2 GW by 2030.


RWE said on Monday that Linde has been hired to conduct preliminary work on the GET H2 project and deliver permit planning for two 100 MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysers at Lingen, Lower Saxony. The site's hydrogen production will be fueled by North Sea offshore wind energy.


Depending on when state money is available, the electrolyzers should be operational in 2024 or early 2025. The plant will be extended further, with an electrolysis capacity of 300 MW predicted by 2026.


The plan for the two electrolyzers is still in the pre-project planning stage, and the engineering, procurement, and construction phases will begin after the project receives state funding approval.


RWE intends to play a role in the building of cross-regional European hydrogen infrastructure and the development of a strong European hydrogen market, thus the electrolysis capacity at the Lingen location might increase to 2 GW by the end of the decade.


The GET H2 project is one of the Essen-based company's more than 30 green hydrogen initiatives. RWE stated last week that it is collaborating with professional services firm Jacobs to examine the installation of a 100-MW electrolyzer for green hydrogen production at the Pembroke Power Station in South Wales. The projected electrolysis plant's capacity could increase to multiple gigawatts in the future.
