Enapter AG receives largest single European order to date for megawatt-range electrolyzers

| By Mary Bailey

Enapter AG (Berlin, Germany) has received further orders for its megawatt-class electrolyzer, the AEM Nexus 1000. Thanks to their multicore technology, these AEM electrolysers are particularly suitable for the highly efficient production of green hydrogen from renewable energy sources on an industrial scale. As they do not use the rare and costly metal iridium, customers can reliably plan and future-proof their further expansion plans.

Enapter will supply 3 AEM Nexus multicore-class units, each with 1 MW, to the logistics company CFFT SpA. Among other things, the company operates a harbour near Rome. There, the Enapter electrolysers will be used in a hydrogen refuelling system and operated with sustainably generated electricity. The order from CFFT is the largest single order from Europe in Enapter’s history to date.
A further Italian company, F.i.l.m.s SpA, – has also ordered a 1 MW AEM Nexus 1000 electrolyser. The metalworking company from the OMCD Group specialises in hard metal parts and uses conventional hydrogen in its production processes, which was previously delivered to the company. With the Enapter electrolyser, the company will be able to produce green hydrogen from renewable energy on site and feed it directly into its gas mix for the furnaces. F.i.l.m.s’ medium-term goal is to gradually replace climate-damaging natural gas used elsewhere in its processes and switch to green hydrogen as much as possible.

The two contracts concluded in Italy have an order volume in the upper seven-figure euro range. Jürgen Laakmann, CEO of Enapter: “More and more companies are focusing on their own energy production from wind and sun. Customers are increasingly opting for scalable, iridium-free electrolysers to ensure that they can plan for further expansion. With our iridium-free AEM technology, we can offer the flexibility required for operation and expansion with renewable energies. Our success in the Italian market shows that we are ideally positioned to support industrial companies in providing important impetus for the energy transition.”
