Cummins progresses with GW electrolyzer plant in Spain

This will reaffirm Cummins’s commitment to expanding the green hydrogen economy in Europe and globally.

Cummins Inc. will soon begin building its new gigawatt electrolyzer manufacturing plant in Guadalajara, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain.

Construction of the new PEM electrolyzer plant is to be completed at the end of 2023. It will initially create approximately 150 high-skill jobs, potentially adding another 200 jobs as production grows. The more than 200,000 sq. ft. (20,000 sq. m.) facility will house system assembly and testing and have the capacity to produce 500MW of electrolyzers per year, scalable to more than 1GW per year.

Cummins’ investment in Spain adds to the company’s global efforts to scale the development and manufacturing of zero-emissions technologies and ultimately reduce carbon emissions. The company also recently announced the expansion of PEM electrolyzer manufacturing capacity at its Oevel, Belgium, factory to 1GW.

Last year, Cummins announced it had selected Spain as the site of a new proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer plant. Earlier this year, the company purchased more than 530,000 sq. ft. (50,000 sq. m.) of land in the industrial area of Guadalajara, Castilla-La Mancha, where it is now preparing to begin construction.

Amy Davis, VP at Cummins, said, “This facility will poise Cummins to help European customers transition their energy supply and meet ambitious sustainability goals.”

Alexey Ustinov, Vice President of Electrolyzers at Cummins, said, “By increasing our ability to meet demand for hydrogen generation technology, this facility will help accelerate the global clean energy transition and the role of hydrogen as a viable alternative energy source in Europe.”
