Air Products announced plans to start construction of a second H2 liquefaction plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. This new source is in addition to the company’s existing liquid H2 plant in Botlek, the Netherlands. Once operational in 2025, the plant will double Europe’s total current liquid H2 capacity.
Liquid H2 produced at the plant will be used to supply increased demands from high tech industries as well as the mobility market. It will contribute to the decarbonization of heavy-duty vehicles on Europe’s path to climate neutrality by 2050.
Air Products is committed to contribute to the role of H2 in the energy transition. This project is an important milestone and a great addition to Air Products’ H2 capabilities in Europe.
