Plug Power lands electrolyser deal with Ardagh Glass Limmared

Plug Power Inc., a leading provider of turnkey hydrogen solutions for the global green hydrogen economy, landed a five megawatt (MW) electrolyzer project with Ardagh Glass Limmared AB for the first-ever use of industrial-scale green hydrogen in glass manufacturing.

Plug is the only company offering 5MW containerized PEM electrolyzers today. The standardized turnkey system, with a production capacity of more than two tonnes per day, reduces site construction costs and implementation complexity.

Green Glass Manufacturing
Located east of Gothenburg, Sweden, Ardagh Glass Limmared AB is part of Ardagh Group and the only glass packaging producer in the Nordics as well as being a supplier to Sweden’s most popular spirits company, Absolut.

Dedicated to sustainable packaging solutions, Ardagh will produce 2.1 metric tonnes per day (TPD) of green hydrogen by the end of the year, replacing a portion of the natural gas used today while reducing overall carbon emissions at the plant. Ardagh will use hydroelectric power to generate hydrogen from Plug’s electrolyzer.
