The Salzgitter Group has selected technology group ANDRITZ to supply one of Europe’s largest green hydrogen plants for the SALCOS® program, which aims to achieve virtually CO2-free (green) steel production.
ANDRITZ will build a 100 MW electrolysis plant at the Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH site on an EPC basis, incorporating pressurized alkaline electrolyzer technology from HydrogenPro. Starting in 2026, the plant will produce around 9,000 tons of green hydrogen per year, which will be used to produce green steel. This will mark the start of the industrial utilization of hydrogen under the SALCOS® program.
