South Korea’s Hyosung to build world’s largest liquid hydrogen plant
South Korean textile and chemical conglomerate Hyosung Group (KRX:004800) announced plants to build the world’s single largest liquid hydrogen manufacturing facility, enough to fuel 100,000 cars.
Together with the Linde Group, a leading global provider of industrial gases, Hyosung will invest KRW 300 billion (USD245.3 million) in their joint enterprise to create a value chain that covers everything from the setup to the operation of liquid hydrogen production, transport and recharging facilities.
Hyosung and Linde signed the MOU at the Hyosung headquarters in Mapo, Seoul, South Korea on the 28th of April, with Hyosung Group Chairman Cho Hyun-joo and Linde Korea Chairman Sung Baek-seok in attendance.
Both companies will invest in the construction of a liquid hydrogen plant on an area of about 30,000 square meters within the site of the Hyosung Chemical Yongyeon plant in Ulsan, South Korea. The annual production capacity is 13,000 tons of liquid hydrogen. The two companies will form a joint venture this year, break ground in the first quarter of next year and complete the construction of the liquid hydrogen plant in 2022.
The new plant will produce liquid hydrogen by applying Linde’s hydrogen liquefaction technology and system to byproduct hydrogen produced by the Hyosung Chemical Yongyeon Plant. Hydrogen liquefaction technology liquefies hydrogen in a high-pressure state of the gas. Linde has the world’s most advanced technology in liquid hydrogen production.
Liquid hydrogen is usable in diverse mobility segments such as drones, vessels and forklifts as well as vehicles, that it will likely contribute to the development of related industries.
