(Oslo, 8 July 2022) Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a subsidiary of Nel ASA (Nel, OSE:NEL), has received a purchase order for an alkaline electrolyser system from Skovgaard Energy Aps in Lemvig in Western Jutland, Denmark. The electrolyser system will be used for production of green ammonia.
The green ammonia plant, to be built by Skovgaard Energy and their Danish project partners, Topsoe and Vestas, will be the world’s first dynamic green ammonia plant, where renewable electricity from wind and solar will be connected directly to the electrolyser. This is a demo plant that will test how an ammonia reactor can fluctuate operations based on renewable power input. This will be important learning prior to scaling for future large-scale power-to-X and green ammonia plants. The Danish partnership has been awarded financial support for the project by the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP).
“We are thrilled for this project, which will be an important milestone in the green transition as it showcases green hydrogen production into green ammonia directly from renewable sources. Skovgaard Energy is an exciting client, and we look forward to continue a fruitful relationship with the company and partners“, says Henning Langås, Senior Tender Manager of Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser.
“For this project we selected the alkaline electrolyser technology from Nel as we do not want to risk the project with unfamiliar electrolyser technology. Nel’s alkaline electrolyser is proven technology of high quality, and it will also match well with the intentions of the demonstration project of dynamic operation of the ammonia plant”, says Pat A Han, Technical Director of Skovgaard Energy.
The contract has an approximate value of EUR 4m, and the system is expected to be delivered in Q3 2023.
