Deutsche ReGas, a German gas terminal operator, has planned to construct a 500-MW electrolysis plant for the production of green hydrogen in Lubmin, Germany. Reportedly, the preliminary design for the project has been finished, and the front-end engineering and design (FEED) stage has begun.
Furthermore, the facility with a capacity of 200 MW is anticipated to begin operations in the second half of 2026. In a second stage from 2028 the capacity will be expanded by 300 MW to 500 MW. In its initial phase, the plant will be capable of producing approximately 30,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year. Following the extension, overall output should reach around 80,000 tonnes per year. Moreover, the electricity required for the production process will come from renewable sources, primarily offshore wind power at Lubmin and onshore facilities.
