The natural gas producer's U.S. project, based in Ardmore in Oklahoma, is geared towards producing liquid hydrogen for use in long-haul vehicles.

The alkaline electrolyser equipment would support phase 1 of the H2OK project, designed to produce 90 tonnes per day, the company said.

The electrolyser stacks will be manufactured at Nel's factory in Heroya. Once completed, the electrolyser plant will have nameplate capacity of about 64,000 kg per day of hydrogen, Woodside said.
