Electric Hydrogen Announces Gigafactory in Devens, Massachusetts to Enable Ultra Low-Cost Green Hydrogen Production
May 04, 2023 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Electric Hydrogen Co. (“EH2”), a manufacturer of advanced, industrial-scale hydrogen electrolyzer technology, announced today the location of its first factory in Devens, Massachusetts. The company has leased a newly constructed 187,000 ft2 facility and is now hiring production team members. The Devens factory will have an annual manufacturing capacity of 1.2GW with production of EH2’s 100MW green hydrogen electrolyzers commencing in Q1 2024.

“Our company has a single purpose: to make molecules to decarbonize our world,” stated Dr. David Eaglesham, EH2’s Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder. “Industrial sectors such as fertilizer and steel need new ways to reliably replace fossil resources at costs that work. The machines we will produce at our new factory in Devens will have a transformational impact by enabling ultra-low-cost green hydrogen at an industrial scale.”

Green hydrogen, made by breaking the chemical bonds of water using renewable electricity, is a growth industry that can make an immediate impact on the global climate crisis. Electric Hydrogen expects its technology to establish the standard for industry-wide cost reduction to make green hydrogen cheaper than fossil alternatives.

“Electric Hydrogen Co’s new factory in Devens will harness state-of-the-art technology and bright minds in Massachusetts to produce fossil-free hydrogen from water and renewable electricity – creating jobs, helping industries transition away from fossil fuels, and curbing emissions,” said Senator Elizabeth Warren. “I fought hard for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act, which have accelerated the growth of green energy jobs and are the largest investments in tackling climate change in the history of the world.”

Nel plans gigafactory in Michigan

(May 3 – 2023, Oslo, Norway) Today, Nel announced its plans to build a new automated gigawatt electrolyser manufacturing facility in Michigan. When fully developed, the facility will employ more than 500 people and be among the largest electrolyser manufacturing plants in the world.

The announcement was made at the SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington with Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, and the Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.

“We’re thrilled to bring home up to $400 million in investment from Nel Hydrogen creating more than 500 good-paying, clean energy jobs right here in Michigan,” says Governor Whitmer.

When fully developed, the Michigan facility will have a production capacity of up to 4GW of Alkaline and PEM electrolysers. Going forward, Nel will build on its fully automated Alkaline manufacturing concept invented at Herøya in Norway. Similarly, the company’s expansion of the facility in Wallingford will play a critical role in creating a blueprint for scaling up the production of PEM electrolysers.


Nel’s PEM electrolysers have been developed through decades of support from the US Department of Energy.

“Nearly two decades of research investment through the Department of Energy’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Office has led to technological advances that will now be transitioned to gigawatt scale in our Michigan facility”, says Volldal.

The factory will be built in steps to match supply with demand. A final investment will require a separate decision.
