Samson Pfeiffer will supply more than 1000 valves for a new hydrogen electrolysis plant in Saudi Arabia. The plant, which is located in a technology park of the planned city of Neom on the Red Sea, will supply an electrolysis capacity of 2 GW and be fitted with at least 100 standard modules with 20 MW capacity each. This is an enormous order, both for Pfeiffer Chemie-Armaturenbau in Kempen, Germany as well as the parent company, Samson with its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The order resulted from an agreement concluded between a leading US supplier of industrial gases and a large German plant engineering company with the intention of generating green hydrogen from renewable energy sources.
Immediately after the ink on the contract to build the gigantic electrolysis plant had dried, Samson Pfeiffer also got the go-ahead to start supplying the control and shut-off valves made in Germany for the plant in the Middle East. The huge order is a significant step in Samson‘s path forward within the innovative hydrogen technology environment.
