HyCC contracts McPhy and Technip Energies for 20 MW Dutch green hydrogen project

HyCC has contracted McPhy and Technip Energies for the electrolyser supply, design and construction of a 20MW green hydrogen plant planned for the Netherlands. Set to be operated by HyCC using McPhy electrolysers, the ‘Djewels’ plant will produce 3,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually. Its offtake is anticipated to be supplied to OCI Methanol Europe for the production of renewable methanol.

The plant, which is situated in Delfzijl, the Netherlands, will reportedly be the first to deploy McPhy’s Augmented McLyzer at scale. This electrolyser is expected to provide higher current density and thus flexibility in production with reduced spatial requirements. As the flagship green hydrogen project for the Dutch Province of Groningen and the wider hydrogen valley in the country’s north, the project is supported by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership and has applied for a grant from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. Other companies such as Gasunie, DeNora, and Hinico will help the project, with Technip Energies providing design and construction.

In December 2022, Infinite Green Energy selected Technip Energies for a green hydrogen manufacturing project in Australia. Technip Energies would execute front-end engineering design (FEED) for the MEG-HP1 Early Production Facility, a 10 MW green hydrogen production project in Northam, Western Australia. The Northam Solar Farm, which would be acquired by Infinite Green Energy and is situated about 100 km east of Perth, would supply energy to the MEG-HP1 Early Production Facility.
