thyssenkrupp and Guohua Energy Investment Co., Ltd. signed an MoU to leverage respective expertises and jointly develop industrial green hydrogen projects in China
Today, thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine) and Guohua Energy Investment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to Guohua Energy Investment) signed their first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in China. Both sides intent to work together to bring in their expertises in developing renewable energy projects with industrial-scale green hydrogen application. This also aims to accelerate Guohua Energy Investment’s transformation to sustainable development.
Dr. Gao Yan, CEO of thyssenkrupp Greater China, expressed, “It is a common aspiration in the world to reduce carbon emission by technological means. In recent years, thyssenkrupp keeps exploring feasible paths for green development and has been committed to sustainable development for itself and its customers. We look forward to leveraging thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine’s cutting-edge technologies and global experiences in industrial green hydrogen production, and expect to contribute to China’s ‘dual carbon goals’ together with Guohua Energy Investment.”

thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine is a leader for electrochemistry worldwide, especially in terms of hydrogen production with alkaline water electrolysis (AWE) technology. Its AWE adopts skid-mounted modules, with a unit capacity up to 20MW and an installed capacity from hundred megawatts to gigawatt through combination. Compared with the traditional alkaline water electrolysis technologies in China, thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine’s hydrogen production technology by water electrolysis is efficient and reliable, easy to maintain, and with high durablility. Meanwhile, thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine can provide customers with large-scale comprehensive solutions of green hydrogen in combination with other technical products of the company. Till early this year, thyssenkrupp has won many large-scale green hydrogen projects in the world, for example, the recent largest global green hydrogen project — a 2GW hydrogen production plant by water electrolysis built in Neom, Saudi Arabia. Moreover, thyssenkrupp also participated in multiple key projects on hydrogen energy led by the German government which are designed to achieve the industrial application of large-scale hydrogen production, transportation, storage, and other key technologies in the green hydrogen industrial chain.
“The cooperation with Guohua Energy Investment is based on both parties’ shared goals for sustainable development, positive views on the future of green hydrogen, as well as the expertises and rich experiences from thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine in green hydrogen,” said Zhang Jingxiang, General Manager of thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., “We are looking forward to introducing our industrial-scale green hydrogen solution to China as early as possible.”
