Cummins will start constructing electrolyzers at a factory in Minnesota, starting with 500 MW of capacity per year and scaling up to 1 GW in the future. The company aims to dedicate 89,000 square feet of its existing facilities in a Minneapolis suburb to electrolyser production. With the capability to manufacture different electrolyzer products, the factory will first produce its HyLYZER-500 and HyLYZER-5000 proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers. According to the manufacturer, these products can supply anywhere between 1.25 MW and 200 MW of power for both small- and large-scale hydrogen producing operations.
Furthermore, the company recently announced expansion of PEM electrolyzer manufacturing capacity at its Belgium factory to 1GW and added space to its Mississauga, Canada, site. Cummins also stated that it is constructing two new electrolyzer factories, with a 500 MW initial production capacity and a 1 GW expansion capacity, in China and Spain.
