Very important

The two companies already announced their first project – a 1 GW project in Saudi Arabia that is set to be the world's largest green ammonia project. This partnership is an important one to monitor, as it brings to market Thyssenkrupp's novel zero-gap alkaline water electrolyzer – zero-gap alkaline electrolysis combines the high efficiencies of PEM and solid oxide electrolysis while retaining the "low" capex of conventional alkaline water electrolyzers. Most of the recently announced green hydrogen projects will use electrolysis technology from midsize companies; as a large global corporation with a footprint in several heavy industries, Thyssenkrupp has the ability to rapidly gain a significant share of the growing green hydrogen market.
