Cummins will manufacture its proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis system at its Mississauga, Ontario facility. The electrolyser will be powered by hydroelectric power. Detailed design work and system integration is underway, with plans to bring the Niagara Hydrogen Centre online in early 2024.

Alexey Ustinov, Vice President of Electrolysers at Cummins, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Atura Power to provide green power in Ontario. This project is a great demonstration of the potential of PEM electrolyser technology to decarbonise our power sources and lay the groundwork for a sustainable future. Once completed, this project will be the second 20 MW electrolyser installation for Cummins in Canada and an important milestone in scaling the green hydrogen economy in North America.”
