In May 2021, Power solutions company Cummins announced plans to build a €50 million PEM electrolyser plant for green hydrogen production in Castilla-La Mancha, Spain.
Opening in 2023, The plant will be an astonishing 22,000 square metre and will be the site for the assembly and testing of 55MW/year. In the future, it will be scalable to more than 1 GW/year.
Cummins has received significant support from the Castilla-La Mancha and Spanish government as the plant will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
On top of this project, the alliance has enabled a 230MW green hydrogen project in Palos de la Frontera.
Supplying the electrolyser, Cummins and the alliance will collaborate on the design for wider scalability in the future.
