HIF Global | March 09, 2023
HIF Global, an eFuels company, reached an agreement with Siemens Energy, allowing Siemens Energy to expand its electrolyzer manufacturing capacity more than its previously announced plans. Through this agreement, it will obtain a specific capacity of electrolyzers for the HIF Matagorda eFuels facility.
This agreement would make the HIF Matagorda eFuels facility the world-scale eFuels facility in Texas. It will aggregate approximately 1.8 gigawatts of capacity electrolyzers, annually supporting about 300,000 tonnes of green hydrogen production. Both companies work in front-end engineering and design for about 1.8 GW of Silyzer 300 polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers. These electrolyzers will utilize renewable energy to isolate hydrogen gas from water molecules, producing around 300,000 tonnes of hydrogen gas per year. The green hydrogen is combined with recycled carbon dioxide to produce carbon-neutral eFuels chemically similar to fuels. Without any modifications, these can support the existing engines. The products of the HIF Matagorda eFules facility, i.e., green hydrogen and eFuels, will convert about half a million cars to carbon neutral in 2027.
CEO of HIF Global, Cesar Norton Sacre said, "We face a time of incredible expansion in hydrogen production amid global supply chain challenges. The agreement with Siemens Energy allows for electrolyzer deliveries which could support the start of construction as early as the first part of 2024 for the HIF Matagorda eFuels Facility. We look forward to starting construction at the pioneering Texas green hydrogen and eFuels facility, with Siemens Energy's industry leading electrolyzer design and manufacturing strength."

SVP of Sustainable Energy Systems at Siemens Energy, Stefano Innocenzi said, "Hydrogen and powerto-X applications such as eFuels will play a key role in the energy transition. To ramp up this new industry, we need many projects, including large-scale ones, and investors and off-takers who are willing to make a promise for the future. These agreements give us planning certainty, creating the basis for ramping up the technology and the industry as a whole."
