Leading provider of turnkey hydrogen solutions for the global green hydrogen economy Plug Power has entered an agreement with New Fortress Energy for a 120 megawatt industrial-scale green hydrogen plant near Beaumont in Texas. Expected to be one of the largest of its kind in North America, the facility will leverage Plug’s industry-leading proton exchange membrane electrolysis technology and enable the production of more than 50 tonnes per day of green hydrogen. With the development of additional supporting infrastructure, the facility will be scalable to nearly 500 megawatts. The facility is the first investment in green hydrogen for NFE, a global infrastructure company committed to accelerating the world’s transition to clean energy.The green hydrogen project site is strategically located on the banks of the Neches River in Jefferson County, Texas, affording proximity to industrial end-users as well as access to reliable power and superior logistics including rail, marine and existing pipelines that span the U.S. Gulf Coast region. The Port of Beaumont and broader Sabine-Neches Navigation District are home to an array of large-scale industrial facilities in the refining, petrochemical and other sectors that utilize hydrogen for desulfurization and feedstock processing.
