Yara jumps on HyPilot hydrogen plan

The plan involves Gassco commissioning a PEM electrolyser in the second half of 2023, at the Kårstø Gas Processing Plant in Rogaland, Norway. - EnergyVoice

Yara is primarily interested in the production of green ammonia. The HyPilot scheme aims to demonstrate Hystar’s electrolysers can produce green hydrogen at a lower cost.

The plan will run the 1 MW containerised electrolyser for 10,000 hours. This will give the companies data on how it performs.

Equinor’s part focuses on HyPilot’s ability to operate dynamically, that is taking power from varying offshore wind.

HyPilot marks a significant moment for the hydrogen industry, bringing together leading industry names to showcase Hystar’s patented, ultra-efficient electrolysers. Today’s announcement is a key step towards scaling up and enabling widespread commercial deployment of large-scale green hydrogen production.

Fredrik Mowill CEO of Hystar

The membrane in the Hystar electrolyser is thinner than in other technologies. The company claims this provides better efficiency owing to lower resistance.

We are pleased that Yara, Enova, Equinor, and Gassco share our vision of commercialising technology for lower-cost green hydrogen. Working together in the years ahead will enable us to drive unseen levels of cost and production efficiencies across hard-to-abate sectors.
