April 11 (Renewables Now) - French green hydrogen technology company Elogen on Thursday said it has joined hands with Spanish engineering company Sarralle to make green hydrogen production equipment for the steel industry.

Under a collaboration agreement signed last week, the partners will engineer, manufacture and supply green hydrogen generation equipment, offering both containerized and electrolysis plant solutions. The initiative will also cover the development of pilot projects that envisage the installation of electrolysers to produce green hydrogen and use it as a primary fuel source within specific industrial locations.

The partnership is seen to contribute to the steel industry’s decarbonisation, which is responsible for about 9% of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions.

Elogen is a unit of gas transportation and storage group Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT). The company is focused on the development of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysers.

“With this collaboration agreement, Elogen takes its technological solutions a step further towards their integration in energy-intensive industries,” said managing director Jean-Baptiste Choimet.
