Hydrogen liquefiers at varying scales for industry and mobility
The increased use of hydrogen across the economy holds tremendous potential for supporting the transition to a low-carbon future. In mobility, hydrogen supports the use of fuel cells, enabling the decarbonization of various forms of transport. The use of liquid hydrogen is therefore of increasing importance in mobility.
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction is supporting the development of liquid Hydrogen to enable the transportation and distribution of hydrogen for later conversion and use where it is most valuable.
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction offers hydrogen liquefiers at varying scales, from small to large, with highly efficient technologies that have low maintenance costs and high levels of reliability. Our equipment is designed and manufactured in-house.
We have 60 years of experience in the design, engineering and operation of ultra-low temperature liquefaction plants. With the growth in hydrogen mobility and the transition to low-carbon societies, we are supplying the high performance equipment for the largest hydrogen liquefaction plant in the world in South Korea, which will have a production capacity of 90 tons per day of liquid hydrogen. We are already working on the next generation of H2 liquefiers with a size above 100 tpd for large liquid hydrogen export projects.
We have several proprietary technologies including expansion turbines, heat exchangers, advanced insulation cold boxes, and a range of standard H2 liquefiers. Our optimized hydrogen liquefaction plant portfolio enables us to address the growing need, driven by clean mobility demand.
North Las Vegas, Nevada: the largest liquid hydrogen production and logistics infrastructure
Air Liquide recently opened its largest liquid hydrogen production and logistics infrastructure facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
The North Las Vegas facility will produce 30 tonnes of liquid hydrogen per day which will be utilized by various customers, notably by those in the growing clean mobility market on the West Coast, especially California. The facility is powered by fully renewable electricity and can also use renewable natural gas to meet the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) when supplying the California mobility market. The renewable hydrogen produced can serve over 40,000 fuel cell vehicles in California.
