Three companies plan scalable, modular 500 kg/day green H2 plant in Texas
Three US companies are collaborating to set up the world's first 500 kg per day green hydrogen production facility in Houston, Texas.
HNO International announced it would lead the initiative, alongside Element One Energy and Pneumatic and Hydraulic Company, and that the trio aimed to complete the project before July this year. This would be the first installation of HNO International's Scalable Hydrogen Energy Platform (SHEP), which the company calls "a significant leap forward" in green hydrogen infrastructure.
SHEP is modular and scalable system designed to efficiently produce, store, and dispense green hydrogen from water using a 1.25 MW electrolyzer.
The platform is versatile enough to cater to energy developers, companies, communities, and municipalities: it boasts footprint of less than 3,000 sq feet, providing flexibility in installation across diverse locations.
The design is scalable, allowing production beyond 5,000 kg of hydrogen per day with additional electrolyzers and other integrated components, making it an ideal solution for various industrial and commercial applications.
The platform can be connected to the grid, or run directly via a renewable energy source to create a 100 percent green, off-grid unit.
Donald Owens, Chairman at HNO International, hailed the collaboration in the project and added: "The development of the 500 kg per day green hydrogen production facility in Houston is a testament to our dedication to advancing sustainable hydrogen infrastructure. This facility is just the beginning, as we have plans for additional installations in 2024, 2025, and beyond, further solidifying our position as leaders in the hydrogen energy infrastructure sector."
HNO International specializes in the design, integration, and development of green hydrogen-based energy technologies, with over 13 years of experience in green hydrogen production.
Element One Energy is an expert in the design and manufacturing of electrolyzers and solid-state hydrogen storage systems. The company also develops technology to meet the need for Ultra Low-Cost Green Hydrogen production and storage.
Pneumatic and Hydraulic Company is a leader in the compressed gas industry for over 60 years. The company's extensive experience in fluid power solutions and high-pressure systems gives it capability to provide all aspects of hydrogen creation, compression, and distribution processes through its unit Total Hydrogen Solutions.
