Hydrogen solution provider Electriq, and global energy storage company, Zenith Energy Terminals have announced a partnership to build the world’s first manufacturing plant of Electriq Powder at the Port of Amsterdam.

Electriq Powder simplifies storage, transport, and use of hydrogen in last mile, off-grid and backup applications. Electriq Powder features superior safety and energy density, compared to compressed and liquified hydrogen. The release of hydrogen from the powder and conversion into electricity is done through a proprietary, compact release unit.

The partners have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), to construct Electriq’s first powder plant at Zenith Energy’s terminal in Amsterdam. The agreement includes the production of green hydrogen using renewable energy generated by Zenith’s on-site wind turbines.

Baruch Halpert, executive chairman and CEO of Electriq. ‘This plant is the first of its kind in the world and will serve our customers in the Benelux market. The Netherlands is an early adopter of hydrogen as the fuel of the 21st century, and we see this Electriq Powder plant as a key enabler to leverage this in innovative, safe and industrial manner.’

‘This project will pave the way for Europe’s move into clean, sustainable energy, leveraging the strengths of our Amsterdam storage terminal to provide a strong foundation for the new energy industries and creating new jobs in the area,’ adds Jeff Armstrong, CEO at Zenith Energy Terminals.
