Atura Power has selected Cummins Inc. to design and manufacture the electrolyzer system for its Niagara Hydrogen Centre in Niagara Falls, Ont. This will be Ontario’s first 20-megawatt (MW) green hydrogen facility.
 

Cummins’ proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis system will be manufactured at its Mississauga, Ont. facility and become the centrepiece of Atura Power’s Niagara Hydrogen Centre.

Powered by renewable hydroelectricity, the electrolyzer system will split water into oxygen and 'green' hydrogen. This carbon-free green 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.

Atura Power is implementing a low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen program that will help reduce greenhouse gases, while supporting economy-wide decarbonization. An enabler of clean energy, the company is positioned to help build the hydrogen economy in Ontario.

Low-carbon hydrogen will be an important tool in the fight against climate change. Atura Power, a subsidiary of Ontario Power Generation (OPG), supports the net-zero goals outlined in OPG’s Climate Change Plan.

“The Niagara Hydrogen Centre is our flagship facility that will set the pace for our green and low-carbon hydrogen projects,” says Shelley Babin, President and CEO of Atura Power. “The heart of the facility is the electrolyzer, and we are excited to be working with an experienced and accomplished industry leader in Cummins.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Atura Power to provide green power in Ontario,” said Alexey Ustinov, Vice President of Electrolyzers at Cummins. “This project is a great demonstration of the potential of PEM electrolyzer technology to decarbonize our power sources and lay the groundwork for a sustainable future. Once completed, this project will be the second 20 MW electrolyzer installation for Cummins in Canada and an important milestone in scaling the green hydrogen economy in North America.”
