Korea taking first step in the first hydrogen liquefaction pilot plant project

Gyeongsangnam-do Province Governor Kyung-soo KIM has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote close cooperation in an industrial complex environment improvement fund for a ‘Hydrogen Liquefaction Pilot Plant Establishment Project’.

Produced from city gas, liquefied hydrogen of around five tonnes per day (tpd) capacity will be produced.

The signing ceremony was attended by around 20 officials, including Changwon City Mayor Sung-moo HUH, Doosan Heavy Industries & Constructions CEO Yeon-in JUNG, Korea Industrial Complex Corporation’s Gyeongnam Regional Headquarters Director Dong-chan LEE, and Changwon Industry Promotion Agency Director Jeong-han BAEK.

It was in August last year that Gyeongsangnam-do Province, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Changwon City and Changwon Industry Promotion Agency first proposed the project as a suggestion for the ‘Industrial Complex Environment Improvement Fund Project’ – a contest held by Korea Industrial Complex Corporation.

In March, the companies were selected as the finalists, upon detailed negotiations with Korea Industrial Complex Corporation, to implement the project.
