LATHAM, N.Y., Feb. 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a global leader in comprehensive hydrogen solutions for the green hydrogen economy, has completed the first fill of a Plug tanker with liquid green hydrogen produced at its Woodbine, Georgia production plant, heading straight off to customer sites. The achievement comes one week following the official commencement of operations at the plant. A Plug cryogenic trailer has been filled with liquid hydrogen for use at Walmart, Amazon and Home Depot sites. This is enough liquid hydrogen to fuel 3,216 forklifts a day.

Plug’s Georgia plant currently operates eight 5-megawatt (MW) electrolyzers, the largest proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer deployment in the U.S. The plant can produce up to 15 tons per day of liquid green hydrogen and serves customers in the eastern U.S. From production to fill, the process was completed in about four days, and now-on, the trailers will deliver the green hydrogen to customers through Plug’s extensive logistics network.

“The first delivery of our green hydrogen molecule marks a critical milestone for the green hydrogen economy,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “If you want to see the hydrogen ecosystem of the future, it’s at Plug today. There’s no doubt that Plug is demonstrating the future with real products and projects at scale.”

“We took a big step today to make cost-effective green hydrogen available to our pedestal customers. This validates our investment in building out a production plant network – a bet on our customers’ desire for more sustainable solutions,” said Sanjay Shrestha, Plug’s General Manager, Energy Solutions and Chief Strategy Officer.

The company’s advanced cryogenic and liquefaction capabilities are integral to its operations, allowing the green hydrogen to be safely and efficiently transported to customers. Plug’s liquid hydrogen tankers can transport up to 80,000 pounds per maximum gross vehicle weight. It takes approximately eight gas tube trailers to deliver the same amount of gaseous hydrogen as one liquid hydrogen tanker.
