 Project objective

Djewels demonstrate the operational readiness of 20 MW electrolyser for the production of green fuels (green methanol) in real-life industrial and commercial conditions. It will bring the technology from TRL 7 to TRL 8 and lay the foundation for the next scale-up step, towards 100 MW on the same site. Djewels will enable the development of next generation of pressurised alkaline electrolyser, by developing embarking more cost efficient, better performing, high current density electrodes, preparing the serial manufacturing of the stack and scale-up of the balance of plant components . Economies of scale combines with the flexible and optimized operation of the electrolyser, applying advanced electricity procurement and arbitrage strategies will ensure a low cost of hydrogen for the end-user during the 3 years of operation. This project will demonstrate the conditions for a profitable business cases for green hydrogen production as an input for green (or low-carbon) methanol production towards large-scale deployment in Europe before 2030. Djewels will be located in Delfzijl industrial park, where AkzoNobel already produces hydrogen through a chlor-alkali process and where the (bio)methanol producer, BioMCN, is also located. Delfzijl industrial park has with a direct connection to the electricity transmission grid, and low distribution network charges within. Other hydrogen industry clients in Delfzijl create further conditions for scaling up green hydrogen production. Beyond Delfzijl, the park is connected via a dense gas networks to other large-scale chemical and (petro)chemical hydrogen clients in the Netherlands and Germany. These could allow Djewels to be a stepping stone towards the creation of a new hydrogen valley, in line with the ambitions of the FCH2-JU and the regional roadmap, within the industrial cluster of Delfzijl, the Northern Netherland and beyond.
