Global technology company ABB and Hydrogen Optimized have agreed to jointly explore the development of large-scale green hydrogen production systems connected to the electrical grid to offer a clean, sustainable and affordable energy source. Hydrogen Optimized has ambitions to use its high current water electrolysis technology at scale to produce green hydrogen for emerging clean applications across industries, including chemical, utility and transportation. ABB’s hydrogen research team will explore electrical power supply optimization through projects involving ABB high power rectifier (HPR) systems. Together, the companies plan to prove that Hydrogen Optimized’s RuggedCell water electrolysis technology can be used to develop an integrated product solution based on a 100MW single module plant design concept.

ABB is a leading worldwide supplier of high power rectifiers for any industrial application, providing maximum availability, highest productivity and with a high priority on personnel safety. Within its HPR range, rectifier systems provide DC current in the range of 5,000A to 550,000A, as single or multiple units and as such can provide nearly unlimited current and voltage combinations and meet most plant specific requirements.

The MoU signed by the companies formalizes the agreement to explore the implementation of a demonstration system as well as the preparation of a 100MW plant design and commercialization strategies.

Applications using green hydrogen include zero emission transportation fuel supply, ammonia and other chemical production with non-fossil sources of hydrogen, and green metal production with hydrogen instead of a coking-type process.

Hydrogen Optimized, founded in 2017, is a private hydrogen technology company commercializing proprietary green hydrogen production systems. Our vision is that by 2030, the adoption of clean hydrogen processes for energy, chemical, and industrial purposes, will improve the quality of life for all individuals worldwide.
