Plug Doing Real Things: Global Electrolyzer Customer Deployments Roundup

July 9, 2024

In 2020, Plug made a strategic move to vertically integrate electrolyzers into our operations and product offerings, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to revolutionizing the hydrogen economy and making green hydrogen ubiquitous. 

Fast forward to today, and we now operate the world’s largest PEM electrolyzer manufacturing gigafactory in Rochester, N.Y,  and are deploying and operating electrolyzers for customers across five continents. 

Over the past couple years, we  have announced several new electrolyzer customer projects – and have been working on even more. We’ve had great interest in our electrolyzer offerings and have continued to convert sales into commissioned installations. 

Plug is doing real things every day and we wanted to share a few of them from the electrolyzer side of the business. Let’s explore the global footprint of our installed and operational Plug electrolyzer systems.

Below, we highlight a few of the projects and partnerships where our electrolyzer systems are helping to displace fossil fuels across the globe today. 

MOL – Hungary

Announced in 2022, MOL Group, an international, integrated oil, gas, petrochemicals, and consumer retail company, teamed up with Plug to build one of Europe’s largest-capacity green hydrogen production facilities at MOL’s Danube Refinery in Százhalombatta, Hungary. Green hydrogen will reduce the carbon footprint of the Danube Refinery operation and enable emission-free mobility in the longer term.

Utilizing a 10-megawatt (MW) electrolysis unit from Plug, MOL’s €22 million facility will be able to produce approximately 1,600 tons of clean, carbon-neutral, green hydrogen annually, removing up to 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide by displacing the currently used natural gas-based production process. As this process represents one-sixth of the carbon dioxide emissions of MOL Group, this investment supports MOL’s carbon neutrality goals and will contribute to energy independence for the region.

Commissioning is expected to be complete by mid-Q3 2024. Once operational, MOL will use the green hydrogen in its Danube Refinery during fuel production of its own hydrogen system. It will be incorporated into the molecules of MOL fuels, lowering the carbon outputs from the production technology and the final product.

SK Plug Hyverse –  Jeju Island, South Korea

Hamdeok Refueling Station in Jocheon-eup, Jeju, South Korea, is home to Korea’s first green hydrogen charging station. Jeju City is ramping up their fuel cell bus fleet from 9 to 20 by the end of the year. The fleet will continue to grow – doubling by the end of 2025 and adding three garbage trucks as well. They are targeting 300 buses and 200 garbage trucks by 2030. A green hydrogen production facility nearby provides the hydrogen needed for the fleet. Powered by offshore wind, electrolyzers – including a 1MW Plug electrolyzer – produce the hydrogen, which is then transported 18km to the charging station. The project was commissioned in early 2024.

5 MW Site – Poland

Plug provided one 5MW electrolyzer to a site in Poland to provide up to 90 kg per hour of hydrogen that will either be compressed to 500 bar and stored or directed to a CHP (combined heat and power) engine capable of running on 100% hydrogen. In addition, the plant will deliver up to 1 MW of electricity and 1.2 MW of heat or cooling from the absorption chiller. The project was commissioned in the second quarter of 2024. The electrolyzer is powered by wind and solar directly – green energy how it is meant to be!

Hiringa – New Zealand

Hiringa is developing New Zealand’s first nationwide green hydrogen refueling network, using renewable energy to displace fossil fuels in transportation. Plug has sold eight 1 megawatt (MW) electrolyzers to Hiringa for use in the project. Two have been commissioned to date, with two more planned for 2024 and the other four in 2025.


The Wiri  refueling station  is officially open and one of the first four stations under construction. It will help to cover 95 percent of New Zealand’s heavy freight routes in the North Islands area.

Plug has also delivered and installed the 1MW electrolyzer for the Te Rapa site, which is the second of the two hydrogen refueling stations to be open in Hiringa’s network.

Hyvia Flins, France

Plug has installed and commissioned a 1MW electrolyzer to supply Light Commercial Van manufacturer, Hyvia, with the hydrogen it needs for product testing and fleet refueling. This electrolyzer marks a major step in the deployment of Hyvia’s unique and complete ecosystem for H2 mobility.

Amazon – Denver, Colorado 

Announced in late 2023, Plug completed installation of a 1MW electrolyzer system at Amazon’s Aurora, Colorado fulfillment center. The one-megawatt (MW) proton exchange membrane electrolyzer is the first for Amazon and is producing low-carbon hydrogen to fuel more than 225 hydrogen fuel cell-powered forklift trucks at the site, known as DEN8. For this project, Plug provided design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance services for the 1MW PEM electrolyzer and hydrogen storage—compatible with the existing refueling infrastructure and fuel cells already in use at the site. This is the first electrolyzer system installed and in use at an Amazon site.

5MW Site – Europe

Plug is executing on an order for ten 5MW electrolyzer systems, with one system installed and operational today. The electrolyzers will be used to produce renewable green hydrogen using primarily wind and solar-power for various mobility applications in Europe, including forklifts and light commercial vehicles.

5 MW Site – Sweden

A company in Sweden has been working toward decarbonizing their methane-fired furnaces, used in the production process. To further that mission, they have installed a 5 MW Plug electrolyzer, and are injecting the hydrogen to replace some of the methane used in furnaces. The electrolyzer unit will be fed with grid electricity. Plug began installing the system in October 2023 and is currently completing the last stages of commissioning. Because Sweden is located in the far north, where winter involves a lot of snow, the Company added a snow roof covering the electrolyzer to protect it from the elements.

2 X 5 MW Site – Africa

In Africa, Plug has two 5MW electrolyzers that have been installed and are producing hydrogen to help the company reach its net zero targets by 2050. This is Plug’s first site in Africa.
