Gevo finalizes renewable hydrogen development services agreement with Zero6 Energy, selects Cummins as technology partner
02 March 2023
Gevo finalized a Hydrogen Development Services Agreement with Zero6 Energy (formerly Juhl Energy) for the development of a 20MW hydrogen production facility in Lake Preston, South Dakota, using Cummins Inc. electrolyzer technology. The facility, known as the Dakota Renewable Hydrogen Project (DRH), will be an integral part of Gevo’s Net-Zero 1 renewable hydrocarbon plant (NZ1) that is under development.
Cummins will supply the project with an electrolyzer system comprising four HyLYZER-1000 proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers to produce hydrogen. Cummins’ HyLYZER®-1000 product is currently in operation at a similar facility in Becancour, Québec, Canada.
Over 80% of the DRH hydrogen production capacity will be directly piped to the Gevo NZ1 plant to be used in the hydrocarbon refining process. The DRH will be located on the NZ1 plant property under a long-term lease agreement from Gevo.
