GenH2 and Chart Industries ink MoU for hydrogen liquefaction systems
Published by Callum O'Reilly,
GenH2 and Chart Industries have formed a strategic partnership to jointly market and distribute small-scale hydrogen liquefaction technologies globally.
Included in the agreement are collaboration on global sales and marketing opportunities, equipment manufacturing and supply, and the deployment of GenH2’s 1000 kg/d hydrogen liquefier.
Demand for distributed hydrogen infrastructure has grown significantly and the supply of liquid hydrogen remains low or non-existent in some parts of the world. GenH2’s solution will allow for the deployment of a scalable, modular distributed infrastructure that breaks geographic constraints.
According to the details of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), GenH2 will incorporate Chart equipment into its liquefaction systems, inclusive of storage, heat exchangers, and other key components.
“In a market where supply chain concerns are rampant, this strategic partnership will allow us to meet our growing order list,” said Greg Gosnell, President, and CEO of GenH2.
The GenH2 flagship 1 tpd liquefaction system offers 1000 kg/d of pure para hydrogen using technology that is optimised for performance and efficiency. The small footprint of the system was intended to be deployed at the point of demand, providing the user with flexibility and control over their energy source. This partners well as a complement to Chart’s larger hydrogen liquefaction capabilities, and allows Chart to focus on expanding larger-scale solutions and GenH2 to focus on small distributed liquefaction systems.
Additionally, the two companies will collaborate to continue to develop industry relationships across the full hydrogen value chain, as well as pursue new customers where opportunities exist.
Gosnell added: “Our new partnership with Chart will allow GenH2 to accelerate its market expansion plans into new territories.”
“Partnering with GenH2 on technology and equipment is a positive for the industry in furthering hydrogen liquefaction options of all scales and for a variety of applications,” added Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO. “We are excited to collaborate with GenH2 to bring these innovative solutions to market in a safe and efficient manner.”
The agreement follows GenH2’s recent introduction of its GenH2 LS20 Mobile Liquid Hydrogen System, an end-to-end liquefication system that functions both as a stationary unit, or on a trailer for mobile use. As a complete system, the LS20 can liquefy, store, and dispense liquid hydrogen.
