HyCC awards contracts to McPhy and Technip Energies for Djewels green hydrogen project


Under the agreement, McPhy will supply the electrolyzers, while Technip Energies will handle the design and construction of the 20 megawatt plant. The final investment decision for the project is expected to be made by HyCC later this year.

Situated in Delfzijl, the Netherlands, Djewels will be an advanced electrolysis facility. Operated by HyCC, it will utilize McPhy’s electrolysers to produce up to 3,000 tons of green hydrogen annually from renewable power and water. This green hydrogen will be utilized by OCI Methanol Europe for the production of renewable methanol, resulting in a reduction of up to 27,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year. Other project contributors include Gasunie, DeNora, and Hinicio.

Djewels will be the first plant of its size to employ McPhy’s “Augmented McLyzer” technology, featuring higher current density, enhanced production flexibility, and reduced spatial requirements. This development is crucial for scaling up green hydrogen production and supporting the decarbonization objectives of European industries.

As a flagship project for the Province of Groningen and the broader Hydrogen Valley in the Northern Netherlands, Djewels contributes to the sustainable growth of regional industries. The project received support from the regional Waddenfonds and is also backed by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership (formerly FCH-JU), with an application for a grant from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs to facilitate the deployment of this innovative technology.

Marcel Galjee, Managing Director of HyCC says: “Green hydrogen production needs to significantly scale-up in the coming years if we want to reach the European climate goals for 2030. This means we need to deploy innovative technology at scale to gain practical experience. The work of Technip Energies and technology from McPhy allow us to do exactly that.”

Jean Baptiste LUCAS, Chief Executive Officer of McPhy, states: “Collaborating with a major industrial company for an emblematic green hydrogen production project in Europe represents a major step forward for McPhy and the green hydrogen sector. There are significant projects set up over the last few years, now entering their implementation phase, and we have the resources to seize this opportunity.”
