Plug Power Hits 7.5 GW Milestone in Global Electrolyzer Contracts

Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a pioneering force in the green hydrogen economy, has reached a major achievement by securing 7.5 gigawatts (GW) in global Basic Engineering and Design Package (BEDP) contracts. This significant milestone, achieved within just two years of introducing the service, highlights the surging demand for green hydrogen and affirms Plug’s leadership in PEM electrolyzer technology.

Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug, emphasized the impact of the BEDP on the company’s growth, stating, “The introduction of our BEDP has significantly propelled the growth of our electrolyzer business. This milestone not only highlights the increasing demand for green hydrogen but also underscores Plug’s industry-leading position in driving the green hydrogen revolution.”

The BEDP is crucial for advancing to the front-end engineering design (FEED) stage of a plant. It provides detailed engineering and plant integration insights necessary for understanding both the capital and operational expenditures involved. This preparation is vital for moving towards a Final Investment Decision (FID), which is influenced by the maturity and reliability of the technologies and suppliers involved.

Typically, the progression from BEDP and FEED to FID spans about 6-18 months. Once FID is reached, these contracts could potentially translate into electrolyzer sales, representing significant revenue opportunities for Plug.

Recently, Plug secured a notable 3 GW BEDP contract with Allied Green Ammonia for a project in Australia and has an additional 4.5 GW in contracts across the U.S. and Europe. Plug’s capability to expand its electrolyzer business showcases its expertise not only in PEM technology but also in constructing large-scale green hydrogen plants, positioning the company as a unique electrolyzer OEM supplier in the industry.
