Plug Power Inc., a turnkey hydrogen solutions provider is growing its green hydrogen footprint in New York with construction of a new green hydrogen production facility and electric substation in the New York Science, Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Park (STAMP).
As North America’s largest green hydrogen production facility, the plant will produce 45 metric tons of green liquid hydrogen daily servicing the Northeast region. The plant will use 120 MW of Plug’s PEM electrolyzers to make the hydrogen using clean hydropower. The New York plant joins the company’s existing Tennessee plant in a network that aims to supply 500 tons per day of green hydrogen by 2025, 1,000 tons per day globally by 2028. The plant will be set up at an investment of $290 million The project includes a 450 MW electrical substation that will service the entire STAMP site.
STAMP is a 1,250-acre mega site located at the center of upstate New York’s largest population, research, and workforce training hubs. The mega site is strategically located in New York Power Authority’s hydropower zone. STAMP has been validated as a regional priority project by the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council and has been supported by local, regional, and state governments, as well as business, university, and utility partners.
