Sunfire conducts FEED study for 500 MW green hydrogen project

After receiving an order for a 100 MW electrolyser last year, Sunfire is now participating in the next significant project: conducting the front-end engineering and design study for a substantial 500 MW hydrogen project scheduled for operation by 2028.

Sunfire's FEED study will enable the customer to take a transparent, comprehensive financial investment decision (FID) for the project.

This project represents a significant milestone in Europe's green hydrogen initiatives. The renewable hydrogen produced will support various applications, including refinery operations and ammonia production, contributing to industrial sustainability efforts. Complementing the project, extensive solar and wind infrastructure will accompany the central 500 MW pressurised alkaline electrolyser.

“Europe is at the forefront of adopting green hydrogen solutions” said Nils Aldag, CEO of Sunfire, commenting on the project’s importance. “We are seeing the first 100 MW projects reaching their FIDs. As larger-scale projects like the 500 MW initiative emerge, Sunfire reaffirms its commitment to providing reliable industrial electrolyser technology, capable of facilitating transformative projects.”

Sunfire's comprehensive FEED study will define operational parameters, site requirements, and execution guidelines with integration partners (EPCs) for the 500 MW pressurised alkaline electrolyser. The outcome sets a crucial milestone towards project realisation, ensuring effective execution.

In parallel, Sunfire continues to scale its production capacities – the company launched its automated series production of pressurised alkaline electrolysers at the beginning of last year that is currently further expanded. With an order backlog of 700 MW electrolyser capacity, Sunfire is committed to enable the green industrial transformation for a broad range of customers.

“With the projects we are bringing to life this year, we are building a strategic and efficient partner network – gaining the experience that will enable us to deliver electrolysis systems scaled up to several hundreds of megawatts” added Mr Aldag.
