Haldor Topsoe says it will invest in a manufacturing facility producing highly efficient solid oxide electrolyzers (SOEC) with a total capacity of 500 megawatt per year with the option to expand to 5 gigawatt per year. The facility is reportedly expected to be operational by 2023.

With the new facility, Topsoe says it will accommodate increasing demand for competitive electrolysis technology, predominantly for green hydrogen plants based on renewable electricity. Development of the automated manufacturing facility, reportedly the largest of its kind, is ongoing.

“This new manufacturing facility is a concrete step to take a leading role in the ongoing energy transition towards a low carbon future. We strongly believe that one of the most viable routes to this goal lies in the efficient utilization of renewable electricity to produce green hydrogen, fuels and chemicals,” says Roeland Baan, CEO of Haldor Topsoe. “With Topsoe’s SOEC electrolyzer, more than 90% of the renewable electricity that enters the electrolyzer is preserved in the green hydrogen it produces.”

Topsoe is reportedly already engaged in several projects to produce green hydrogen, green ammonia, green methanol and green fuels.
