Sheffield clean energy firm builds and installs first-of-a-kind equipment in Japan

Sheffield-based clan energy company ITM Power has built and installed Japan’s first-ever imported PEM electrolyser, completed in a collaboration with Sumitomo Corporation.

The equipment is a Neptune electrolyser, and it has been fitted at Tokyo Gas Co Ltd’s Yokohama Techno Station. This is the first deployment of a megawatt-class made overseas and imported into Japan.

Made by ITM in the UK and shipped to Japan, the electrolyser is now installed and ready for commissioning, after which it will produce hydrogen for use in the e-methane production of Tokyo Gas – an important milestone on Japan’s journey to carbon neutrality by 2050.

ITM Power CEO Dennis Schulz said: “ITM is proud to work with Sumitomo to support Tokyo Gas in advancing hydrogen technology deployment in Japan. We are keenly observing the wider developments in Japan, such as the government’s CfD style support scheme, which could see Japan emerge as one of the most fertile countries for green hydrogen projects in the region.”
