STEAG and thyssenkrupp work on a joint hydrogen project
15 December 2020
STEAG, thyssenkrupp Steel and thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers are working on a joint feasibility study. The study deals with the construction of a water electrolysis plant at the STEAG site in Duisburg-Walsum by thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, the structuring of energy supply and operation of the electrolysis plant by STEAG and the supply of green hydrogen and oxygen to thyssenkrupp Steel's steel mill in the neighboring Duisburg district of Bruckhausen. The study will lay the basis for the subsequent project development. All three parties involved are planning to participate as investors and will actively seek private and public funding.
The project development is planned to start as soon as a positive result of the feasibility study is obtained.
