On May 29, an important event took place in Katowice, which will contribute to the further development of hydrogen technologies in the country.
Świętokrzyskie Industrial Group INDUSTRIA S.A., as the leader of the Łaszczyński Brothers Central Hydrogen Cluster, and the Silesian-Lesser Polish Hydrogen Valley signed a letter of intent on cooperation in the development of the hydrogen economy.
Both sides declared their willingness and readiness for mutual cooperation. The exchange of experiences on the production of green hydrogen, Polish electrolysers, as well as the development of Polish hydrogen automotive platforms will be of key importance. The Central Hydrogen Cluster aims to include a hydrogen hauler in the fleet of vehicles and machines operating in the mine – characterized by co-combustion in a hydrogen engine.
The parties also see the possibility of cooperation on the development of hydrogen technologies. In the long term, cooperation between these entities is to enable the joint implementation of projects and research related to the production or use of green hydrogen.
The Cluster’s objective is to create an open cooperation forum open to all entities willing to take actions for the development of zero-emission energy sources and green hydrogen production in the Świętokrzyskie region. The signatories of the declaration are striving to create zero-emission energy sources capable of producing 4 TWh of energy annualy and hydrogen electrolysers with a capacity of 250 MW, which is expected to boost the production to 50.000 tonnes of clean hydrogen to drive heavy equipment, trucks and public transport in cities. This is to reduce CO2 emissions by 400.000 tonnes per year.
