Nordex Electrolyzers developed first prototype of 500-kW pressurized alkaline electrolyzer

Nordex Electrolyzers inaugurated a test bench in its plant at Lumbier and presented its first in-house-developed prototype of a 500-kW pressurized alkaline electrolyzer to the public.

It is the biggest electrolyzer designed, manufactured, and assembled entirely in Spain. The 500-kW prototype can produce more than 10 kg/h of hydrogen with an energy consumption of less than 50 kWh/kg. It is specially designed to work with power changes and frequent stops. This, together with the right selection of materials, will allow Nordex Electrolyzers to differentiate its product from other manufacturers.

Hydrogen is set to become one of the most important energy vectors of the future. Not only will it allow for better management and integration of renewable energies, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions, but will also allow for the decarbonization of many industrial sectors that currently require large amounts of hydrogen for their processes.
