New facilities for hydrogen research: Hydrohub

It is expected that by the end of this year, the Hydrohub MegaWatt Test Centre will become fully operational. It offers state-of-the-art facilities for optimizing and scaling-up of electrolysis using alkaline and PEM technology. With two 250 kW test electrolyzers it facilitates the next step in bringing the production of green hydrogen to an industrially relevant multi-megawatt level, focusing on robustness, flexibility, efficiency and cost reduction.
