NEL receives purchase order for 5MW alkaline electrolyzer

Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, a division of Nel ASA (Oslo: NEL), has received a purchase order for a 5MW alkaline water electrolyzer from SGN for the world’s first 100% hydrogen-to-homes heating network on the east coast of Scotland.

SGN is one of the UK’s largest gas distribution network companies, operating across Scotland, southern England, and Northern Ireland and supplying gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses.

The 5MW Alkaline electrolyzer is a fully redundant system. The contract includes installation and commissioning and a service and maintenance contract.

The electrolyzer will deliver up to 2,093kg/day of green hydrogen at 30barg to SGN’s H100 Fife project in Levenmouth, Scotland.

This project is the first-ever 100% hydrogen network of scale supplying green hydrogen from electrolysis to customers for heating and cooking. The system will be powered by a nearby offshore wind turbine and grid electricity.

The newly built hydrogen gas distribution network will supply up to 300 households initially with zero carbon heat. However, both the electrolyzer and network have been sized to have the capacity to supply up to 900 homes as part of the planned future expansion of the H100 Fife project.
