Clean Power Hydrogen Group Limited’s Partnership With Northern Ireland Water

Browne Jacobson advised Clean Power Hydrogen Group Limited on the deal.

Clean Power Hydrogen Group Limited (CPH2) signed a 15-year partnership with Northern Ireland Water (NI Water) which will see them supply state of the art 1 Megawatt (MW) Membrane-Free Electrolysers. The partnering will boost Northern Ireland’s hydrogen economy and help to reduce emissions.

NI Water secured the deployment of the tech after being awarded £5m in funding from the Department for the Economy to support an innovative oxygen and hydrogen demonstrator project. This ground-breaking project is the first of its kind in the UK and Ireland and could have huge environmental benefits.

Doncaster-based CPH2 was established in 2012 by Technology Director Dr. Nigel Williamson and CEO (Ireland) Joe Scott and has developed a cutting-edge membrane-free electrolyser to produce hydrogen faster, more reliably, and more cost-effectively than other electrolysers.
