The EUR 100 million project will mass-produce Enapter’s groundbreaking “plug and play” electrolyzers, which produce hydrogen that can be integrated into any energy system. By lowering the manufacturing overheads, the firm hopes to make their electrolyzers more affordable and contribute to Germany’s transition to renewable energy.
Germany Trade & Invest provided Enapter with support in finding a location to build the factory. Although the process was slowed down a bit by the coronavirus, according to Enapter’s head of strategy Thomas Chrometzka, Enapter remained focused on its long-term objective. It was important that the construction plans went ahead and the production schedule remained on track even as the virus spread throughout Europe.
“We were even able to increase production in some countries,” Chrometzka said. “We were nimble enough to react to the changes and able to work with them.”
