SAERBECK, Germany, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-=KYODO JBN/ --


Acting, not talking.

-  Enapter Campus enables mass production of AEM Electrolysers and serves as a

blueprint for further Enapter production facilities worldwide

-  Electrolyser production, warehouse storage and offices, as well as research

and development laboratories will be built over 82,000 square metres by 2023

-  Groundbreaking with video statement from Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, Energy

Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia and Saerbeck Mayor Dr. Tobias Lehberg



The cleantech company Enapter (WKN: A255G0) today celebrated the groundbreaking

of its mass-production facility for green hydrogen-producing electrolysers. Its

82,000 square metre Enapter Campus will be built in the climate community of

Saerbeck in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and powered entirely with

locally-produced renewable energy. Enapter is pursuing an initial goal of

multiplying its production capacity to 10,000 electrolysers a month to satisfy

the rapidly-growing demand for low-cost hydrogen production solutions.


"To massively reduce the costs for green hydrogen production and reach global

climate goals, we now need to scale existing technologies at speed," said

Enapter CEO Sebastian-Justus Schmidt in his opening speech at the festive

groundbreaking. "Our entire DNA is focused on urgency in research, development

and market entry: The Campus is our climate contribution under the motto

'Acting, not talking'. Scaled production of modular, compact AEM Electrolysers

for projects of any size will make a substantial contribution to tackling the

climate crisis."


Based on current plans, the Enapter Campus will cost around €105 Million.

Construction partner Goldbeck will build at an ambitious tempo so that

production can begin incrementally in the fourth quarter of 2022. First

customer deliveries from mass-production are envisaged to start in 2023. The

development is currently expected to create around 300 jobs in Saerbeck.


The automated mass-production of electrolysers will enable Enapter to decrease

the cost of the devices and thus quickly make green hydrogen competitive with

fossil fuels. Development of the machinery necessary for mass production has

been supported by the North Rhine-Westphalia Ministry of Economic Affairs,

Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy with around €9.36 million.


"With Enapter, North Rhine-Westphalia has gained a strong partner for driving

the climate-friendly conversion of our industry forward, supporting the

achievement of climate protection goals and bringing new job opportunities into

the region," said Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, North Rhine-Westphalia State

Minister for Economy, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy.


Enapter already provides more than 70 integrators and project developers in 40

countries with its patented AEM (Anion Exchange Membrane) Electrolysers, which

are standardised but flexible in implementation for many applications. From

2022, Enapter will offer the first megawatt-scale AEM Electrolyser – the

containerised AEM Multicore – featuring 420 of its AEM electrolysis stacks.

"Enapter's dynamic approach to fighting global warming has impressed us

greatly," said Jan-Hendrik Goldbeck, CEO of the family-led construction firm.

"We are both proud and delighted to work alongside them in building the Enapter

Campus and thus contribute to the rapid scaling of their electrolyser
