The construction start was announced in April 2018.

The cooperation partners will jointly work to create an innovative hydrogen demonstration plant based on the proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology at the voestalpine site in Linz. The objective is to produce green hydrogen in the electrolysis facility and to test the plant for balancing the power reserve market. For this purpose, the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) of the European Commission will provide funding of about EUR 12 million from the Horizon 2020 EU program. The entire project volume for the six consortium partners will amount to about EUR 18 million over the course of 4.5 years. With six MW connected load, the facility is the most effective and modern plant of its type in the world. The partners from industry and the energy sector want to conduct research on “breakthrough technologies” in order to fulfil long-term global climate protection targets. The new plant is scheduled to come fully on stream in the spring of 2019.
