NFE inks deal for Texas green hydrogen plant

US LNG firm New Fortress Energy said it has entered an agreement with compatriot hydrogen solutions firm Plug Power for a 120 megawatt industrial-scale green hydrogen plant near Beaumont, Texas.

Wes Edens-led NFE claims the facility would be one of the largest of its kind in North America.

It will leverage Plug’s proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology and enable the production of more than 50 tons per day of green hydrogen.

Moreover, with the development of additional supporting infrastructure, the facility will be scalable to nearly 500 megawatts.

NFE says the project site is located on the banks of the Neches River in Jefferson County, affording proximity to industrial end-users as well as access to reliable power and “superior” logistics including rail, marine and existing pipelines that span the US Gulf Coast region.

The Port of Beaumont and broader Sabine-Neches Navigation District are home to an array of large-scale industrial facilities in the refining, petrochemical and other sectors that utilize hydrogen for desulfurization and feedstock processing, it said.
