US hydrogen solutions provider, Plug Power, is launching a joint venture with chlor-alkali producer, Olin Corporation, to build a 15-tonne-per-day hydrogen plant in St Gabriel, Louisiana, US.  

The joint venture, named Hidrogenii, will support reliability and speed of supply of green hydrogen to North America. Plug will exclusively market the plant’s output and provide logistical support for delivery, while Olin will contribute with reliable hydrogen supply and operational expertise.  

The construction of the facility will see 160 jobs available in 2022, and 215 in 2023, while its operation will create over 25 permanent full-time positions. The new plant extends Plug’s national hydrogen facilities network. The company aims to produce 500 tonnes per day of liquid green hydrogen by 2025, increasing to 1,000 tonnes per day by 2028.  

‘The Hidrogenii venture advances our commitment to transform Olin’s hydrogen business into a value stream as we seek to grow the value of our 150,000 metric tons of annual hydrogen production capacity,’ says Scott Sutton, Olin chairman, president and CEO. ‘We are excited to partner with Plug, a leader in sustainable hydrogen, to serve the growing demand for green hydrogen.’
