Plug Power is Building the Green Hydrogen Ecosystem at STAMP!
About Plug Power
Plug Power is building the hydrogen economy as the leading provider of comprehensive hydrogen fuel cell turnkey solutions. The Company’s innovative technology powers electric motors with hydrogen fuel cells amid an ongoing paradigm shift in the power, energy, and transportation industries to address climate change and energy security, while meeting sustainability goals.
Plug Power created the first commercially viable market for hydrogen fuel cell technology. As a result, the Company has deployed over 40,000 fuel cell systems for e-mobility, more than anyone else in the world, and has become the largest buyer of liquid hydrogen, having built and operated a hydrogen highway across North America.
In February 2021, Plug Power announced that it has selected a 30-acre site at the STAMP 1,250-Acre Mega Site for the $232.7 million Project Gateway investment.
At STAMP, Plug Power will produce green hydrogen for logistics and transportation users. This will enable users to replace fossil fuels in on-road applications like heavy-duty freight and forklifts.
The Plug Power facility will produce green hydrogen using an electrolysis process of water utilizing clean hydropower. The production facility will produce approximately 45 metric tons of liquid hydrogen that produces no pollution and creates essentially no waste.
