ABB tech to be assessed for 2.2-GW green H2 project in Texas

Swiss industrial conglomerate ABB Ltd (VTX:ABBN) announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with Green Hydrogen International (GHI) to collaborate on a 2.2-GW Power-to-X project in Texas aimed at producing green hydrogen for global export.

The two parties have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to evaluate the potential use of ABB’s automation, electrification, and digital technology for the project.

They will also explore options for measurement and analytics solutions, as well as power and process optimization solutions.

The project covered by the agreement represents the initial phase of GHI’s extensive Hydrogen City project.

The plan will commence with the installation of an electrolyzer to generate 280,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually.

This output will then be transported via a 120-km pipeline to the Corpus Christi energy port, where it will be converted into green ammonia and subsequently exported to Europe and Asia. A

dditionally, GHI is in discussions with potential buyers to provide green hydrogen as a raw material for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and e-methane production.

The production process will be powered by solar photovoltaic (PV) and onshore wind energy.

Hydrogen City will utilize underground salt caverns capable of storing up to 24,000 tonnes of green hydrogen.

Construction is scheduled to commence in 2026, with the first hydrogen from the facility anticipated to be produced in 2030. As the market evolves, additional capacity will be incorporated to expand production.
