Plug Delivers and Commissions over 95 MW of Electrolyzer Capacity Globally

SLINGERLANDS, N.Y., July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a global leader in comprehensive hydrogen solutions for the green hydrogen economy, is proud to announce that it has begun installing and commissioning electrolyzer systems worldwide, with many already operational and producing hydrogen today. To date over 95 MW of Plug electrolyzer systems are in operation or commissioning at sites across the world, setting a new PEM electrolyzer capacity milestone in the hydrogen industry.

The location of these systems spans multiple regions in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, New Zealand and India. Each electrolyzer deployment is managed and installed in compliance with the diverse regulatory and compliance requirements specific to each geography. The systems, ranging from one-megawatt (MW) to 40 MW in capacity, are operating at external customer sites that have purchased Plug’s PEM electrolyzers. Since installation, Plug’s electrolyzers have collectively produced over 1,500 metric tons of hydrogen.

While the Company’s Georgia hydrogen plant is currently the largest operating PEM electrolyzer system in the world, the external customer sites installation makes Plug one of the largest PEM electrolyzer Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) installed base in the world.

“This milestone represents a significant achievement for Plug, underscoring our leadership in delivering proven technology to meet the growing demand for hydrogen worldwide,” said Plug CEO, Andy Marsh. “Deploying electrolyzer systems across multiple continents and producing over 1,500 metric tons of hydrogen, is a clear example that at Plug, we’re not just talking about the future of hydrogen – we’re actively building it today.”

The hydrogen produced via Plug electrolyzers at these locations will contribute to several initiatives, such as developing a green hydrogen refueling network, powering green hydrogen charging stations for fleet vehicles, supporting mobility applications like hydrogen fuel cell-powered forklifts and light commercial vehicles, replacing methane-fired furnaces in the production process and more.

Plug is also on schedule to ship and begin commissioning 37 additional units, which is expected to increase capacity by 40 metric tons per day of hydrogen in the second half of this year. As more systems around the world come online and operate at full capacity, like the recently announced 25MW electrolyzer for the European market, Plug’s electrolyzer systems will produce 93 metric tons of hydrogen per day.
