Plug to build large-scale green hydrogen plant in Europe in Port of Antwerp-Bruges

Plug Power will construct a 35-ton-per-day green hydrogen generation plant in the heart of Europe, at the Port of Antwerp-Bruges.

Plug signed a 30-year concession agreement to construct the plant at the second-largest port in Europe, located in Belgium. On 28 acres of leased property, Plug intends to construct a 100-megawatt green hydrogen plant utilizing its own electrolyzer and liquefaction technologies. Plug will supply the European market with up to 12,500 tons of liquid and gaseous green hydrogen per year.

The construction of the facility will commence following completion of the permitting procedure, which is scheduled to occur in late 2023. Late in 2024, initial production of green hydrogen is anticipated, with plant commissioning occurring in 2025.

“As Europe grapples with the challenges of climate change and energy security, our agreement with Port of Antwerp-Bruges will deliver much-needed natively generated, green hydrogen to local markets,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “The energy crisis in Europe resulting from geopolitical risks has accelerated the demand for green hydrogen development projects.

The Port of Antwerp-Bruges is strategically situated in Europe. It provides transit links to Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and France from its location in the heart of Europe’s largest chemical industry cluster, close to the North Sea. Europe’s capital, Brussels, is less than an hour’s drive away.

The Port of Antwerp-Bruges, which is slated to become a significant hub for hydrogen in Europe, aspires to be a model port for climate-neutral infrastructure. Plug is committed to playing a vital role in assisting Port of Antwerp-Bruges reach this goal through its new green hydrogen facility.
