1MW electrolyser will be installed in May 2021

Siemens Energy and China Power have signed an agreement for a hydrogen production system in Beijing.


The 1MW electrolyser is the first of its kind to be built by Siemens Energy in China and will be delivered in May 2021.


The plant will produce the clean gas for a fuelling station in Beijing's Yanqing district, which is one of the three main competition areas for a major sporting event in 2022

It will help guarantee the hydrogen supply for the public transportation during and after the event, Siemens Energy said.


In September 2019 Siemens signed a memorandum of understanding on “cooperation in green hydrogen development and comprehensive utilisation” with State Power Investment Corporation Limited (SPIC), the main shareholder of China Power.


The two parties also plan to further expand their cooperation on green hydrogen projects.


Siemens Energy CEO Christian Bruch said: “The decarbonisation of the energy systems is a challenge that every country must face. Siemens Energy is the company that can provide its customers with significant support in this process – no matter if they are states or companies.


“Promoting the application and development of renewable hydrogen is of great significance for China to build a modern and cleaner energy system.


“Together with our partner SPIC, we are making an important contribution to tackling climate change and reducing carbon emissions.”


“SPIC is committed to working together with Siemens Energy to continue our cooperation in the field of clean energy and to leverage the complementary advantages of both parties. Together we will contribute to the development of clean energy in order to cope with climate change together”, said Qian Zhimin, SPIC chairman.
