Residual hydrogen 1MW fuel cell plant in Antwerp
Hydrogen Region Flanders-South of the Netherlands


In 2013, the chlorine producer Solvay in the port of Antwerp built the - at the time - largest fuel cell plant on residual hydrogen in the world, fully assembled with European technology.

The plant converts residual hydrogen, a by-product of chlorine production, into 1 MW of electricity. During the test program, various components were tested for more than 10,000 hours of testing.

Based on this experience, the Dutch Nedstack has been able to deliver a follow-up project of a 2 MW fuel cell plant to China.

The role of WaterstofNet

As project coordinator of Hydrogen Region, WaterstofNet has assisted this process in collaboration with the partners and Interreg.
