Cummins will provide the electrolyzer to generate hydrogen at Niagara Falls, Ontario.
The Columbus based engine manufacturer and Atura Power made the announcement today that Cummins would be the provider of the electrolyzer for the Niagara Hydrogen Center. this will be the first 20-megawatt green hydrogen facility in Ontario.
Powered by hydroelectricity, the electrolyzer system will split water into oxygen and “green” hydrogen. The hydrogen will then be provided to industrial customers for immediate consumption and will be transported and blended into the fuel stream at Atura Power’s Halton Hills Generating Station, creating cleaner electricity for Ontario.
Design work is underway, with plans to bring the Niagara Hydrogen Centre online in early 2024.
Cummins company officials said this will be the company’s second 20 megawatt electrolyzer installation in Canada.
