  • The facility will house all spare parts, including core PEM stack technology, to ensure high service levels and rapid deployment capability to systems in Europe
  • Supported by €2.0m grant from the German government

    • c.£7m Increased skills acquisition 
    • c.£14m project delivery & production ramp up

Dr Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power, said: “Over the past year, ITM Power has laid the foundations, financially and operationally, to scale our production capacity which will play a critical role in decarbonising economies using green hydrogen and enabling countries around the world to enhance their energy and food security. 

“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has accelerated the intent of many countries to increase energy and food security, with a specific focus on green hydrogen, as shown by the recent UK Government and REPowerEU announcements. We believe we can gain a material share of these global markets as a result of our experience, expertise, partnerships and capacity.”
