Haldor Topsoe establishes green hydrogen organisation to accelerate electrolysis business

AdobeStock 182859327The new green hydrogen organisation is fully dedicated to accelerate all aspects of Topsoe’s business within electrolysis, including development of high-performance electrolysis technology, sales, and partnerships

The organisation will leverage Topsoe’s unique insights into solid oxide electrolysis, which is the most efficient electrolysis technology available today, producing up to 30% more green hydrogen from the same amount of renewable power, when compared to today’s standard technologies.

Topsoe is determined to take a leading position in the burgeoning green hydrogen space, which, according to an International Energy Agency (IEA) forecast, has the potential to fulfil 17% of the global energy demand by 2050. Topsoe offers a unique end-to-end portfolio within green hydrogen production by electrolysis and the associated downstream production of ammonia, methanol, and e-fuels that offers customers high-value products, efficient distribution and storage, and high yields.

Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe, said, “At the core of our efforts is our capability to turn renewable power into essential carbon-neutral fuels and chemicals. We have Topsoe’s leading electrolysis technology, now we add the fully focused organisation and leadership needed to realise its true potential. I am thrilled to welcome Chokri Mousaoui as executive vice-president and head of the organisation. Chokri brings great leadership and commercial experience from a highly successful tech startup and will lead our work to accelerate the commercialisation of our green hydrogen business.”

Chokri Mousaoui, executive vice-president at Topsoe, explained, “I am impressed with Topsoe’s bold vision of being recognised as the global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024. Not least because the company truly has what it takes to make an exceptional contribution to move the energy transition forward. I really look forward to working together with the talented people here to commercialise our green hydrogen offerings and bring them to the market fast. The demand for innovative solutions is significant and growing.”

In March, Topsoe has also announced that it will build a large-scale SOEC electrolyser manufacturing facility to meet customer needs for green hydrogen production. When operational in 2023, the facility will produce electrolysis stacks with a capacity of 500 MW per year, expandable to 5 GW. 

Saudi project with Topsoe technologies

NEOM Helios project - Topsoe delivers ammonia technology for the world’s biggest green hydrogen facility being built in Saudi Arabia. The facility will produce 650 tonnes/day of carbon-free hydrogen to power trucks and busses.
