Enapter AG, together with its partner YEST, has received an order from South Korea for the delivery of two AEM Multicore electrolysers with a total capacity of 2 MW, to be installed in a 12.5 MW hydrogen pilot project on Jeju Island. The demonstration project is supported by the South Korean Ministry of Industry and Trade (Motie) with 62 billion South Korean won (43.3 million US dollars) and aims to investigate and compare hydrogen production with different electrolysis technologies. Among the five companies selected for the project, Enapter AG is the only technology supplier from Germany or Europe. The systems supplied are expected to produce more than 1000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year. Installation of the two electrolysers in what is a pioneering project for South Korea will be carried out by YEST, which has been supporting Enapter as an integration partner since 2021
With the AEM Multicore, Enapter has developed what it believes is a cost-efficient alternative to traditional systems. This electrolyser can supply around 450 kg of green hydrogen per day, and by using several units in parallel, production can be expanded on an industrial scale.
