Italian-Thai company Enapter has broken ground on a EUR 105 million facility in the western German town of Saerbeck that will mass produce its modular Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) electrolyzers.
The 82,000-square meter Enapter Campus will be powered completely by renewably generated electricity. By 2030, the company aims to be producing 10,000 electrolyzers a month at the new facility.
“To achieve our global climate goals, what is needed above all is rapid scaling-up of existing technologies to massively reduce the costs of green hydrogen,” said Enapter CEO Sebastian-Justus Schmidt at the groundbreaking ceremony. “Our entire DNA is oriented toward speed in research, development and introduction to the market. We are convinced that we can only get a handle on the climate crisis with compact, modular AEM electrolyzers, regardless of size.”
Enapter found its location in western Germany with the help of Germany Trade & Invest.
