Hydrogen Optimized develops and commercializes large-scale Green Hydrogen production systems.
Unique RuggedCell™ Technology
The company’s groundbreaking RuggedCell™ high-current water electrolysers convert renewable electricity such as solar and wind power into Green Hydrogen for industry at a significantly lower cost at large scale than other water electrolysers in the marketplace today. Other benefits include:
- Simplified, single-plant design
- Simple, low-cost maintenance
- Long plant life
- Cost-effective rectifiers at scale
- Smaller footprint
The advancements captured in the RuggedCell design represent a fundamentally different approach that is not found in other electrolysis technology today. This innovative technology is built on a legacy of hydrogen expertise and innovation that runs through four generations of the company’s founding Stuart family.
RuggedCell™ water electrolysis systems are ideal for large-volume, single site applications. They are targeted to major industrial, chemical, utility, transportation and energy end users. Applications include, for example:
- Ammonia production
- Major transportation such as mine haulage, shipping and trains
- Natural gas blending
- Curtailment (conversion and storage) of excess renewable energy
Together these applications represent the largest segment of an overall addressable Green Hydrogen market that Goldman Sachs forecasts could reach US$12 trillion by 2050. In the EU alone, US$475 billion of capital investment in hydrogen infrastructure has been targeted by the EU Hydrogen Strategy, including US$56 billion for electrolysers by 2030. (Goldman)
Large-scale Green Hydrogen supply is ideal for large-scale,
heavy-duty transportation applications that require significant power and
range. Batteries and small-scale hydrogen supply, in contrast, are better suited
to small-scale applications such as automobiles.
