March 21, 2024 [Storage Terminal Magazine]- Chart Industries, Inc., a prominent global provider of solutions to clean energy and industrial gas markets, has secured an order from Element Resources Inc. for its Lancaster Clean Energy Center in the City of Lancaster, California.


Element’s LCEC is set to become one of the largest green hydrogen projects in the state, with an initial phase targeting the production of over 20,000 tonnes of renewable green hydrogen annually. Operating off-grid, the facility will utilize dedicated photovoltaic solar power to drive Element’s electrolyzers, enabling the production of zero-emission, renewable hydrogen. The increased hydrogen capacity will meet rising demand for clean mobility fuels and energy for manufacturing.

Under the agreement, Element Resources will acquire hydrogen liquefaction plants from Chart, leveraging Chart’s expertise in hydrogen refrigeration technology, cold box design, and associated rotating equipment. The order encompasses Chart’s provision of hydrogen liquefaction systems, liquid hydrogen storage tanks, trailer loadout bays, liquid hydrogen transports, and ISO containers. Additionally, hydrogen compression for storage, distribution, and heavy-duty fueling is included in the order.

Steve Meheen, CEO of Element Resources, expressed satisfaction with the agreement, highlighting the simplified procurement, construction, and operation enabled by Chart’s comprehensive hydrogen handling equipment and systems downstream of the electrolyzers.

Jill Evanko, CEO and president of Chart, underscored the company’s commitment to supporting Element Resources in its strategic global buildout within the hydrogen industry. She emphasised Chart’s comprehensive suite of hydrogen offerings as a key driver in advancing the energy transition efforts of Element Resources.
