Description

Irving Oil plans to expand its hydrogen capacity at the Saint John refinery, with the goal of offering hydrogen fuelling infrastructure in Atlantic Canada.

The company’s initial investment in a 5-megawatt electrolyzer, developed by New York hydrogen technology company Plug Power, is expected to be fully operational by late 2023. Once fully operational, the electrolyzer will produce 2 tonnes of hydrogen per day.

The hydrogen electrolyzer will create hydrogen using electricity from the local electricity grid, as Irving Oil begins to shift its hydrogen production to green hydrogen.
