Neles Corporation press release, November 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. EET

Within the scope of the agreement, Neles will deliver Neles™ segment valves to be used in electrolysis plant modules supplied by thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers.  

Towards the clean energy transition  

Green hydrogen — aka hydrogen extracted from water using renewable energy — has been identified as a key component in the clean energy transition. Hydrogen enables huge potential in renewable energy storage, in transportation, and in increasing the use of renewable energy in some carbon-intensive industrial processes. To date, more than 30 countries have already announced their strategies to increase the share of hydrogen in their energy mix.

Hydrogen and Power-to-X technologies will be essential to industry decarbonization. We at Neles see our role as helping process industries to achieve the goal of being carbon neutral by 2050. We have an ambitious sustainability agenda in place, and an agreement like this is a good example of our practical efforts to implement it by offering sustainable solutions for our customers. We are very much looking forward to continuing our successful, long-term cooperation with thyssenkrupp,” says Jon Jested-Rask, Head of EMEIA market area at Neles.

Decades of experience in hydrogen and industrial gas applications

Neles valves have been proven in tens of thousands of hydrogen and oxygen applications worldwide. Neles offers a wide range of valve solutions for a variety of hydrogen applications, from electrolysis to carbon capture.

“New electrolysis technologies or the utilization of explosive industrial gases, such as hydrogen, require valves that can perform reliably under demanding pressure and temperature conditions while ensuring the utmost safety. We are building upon our long experience in flow control to further develop the new technologies to make them safe, efficient, and affordable for our customers around the world,” says Marco Laudenbach, EPC Sales Manager at Neles.
