Cummins Dedicates Existing Fridley Facility To Electrolyzer Production
  • Cummins Inc CMI plans to commence producing electrolyzers in the U.S. to advance the nation's green hydrogen economy. 
  • An electrolyzer separates water into oxygen and hydrogen. When the electrolyzer system is operated using renewable electricity – such as solar, wind or hydropower – the hydrogen it produces is green and carbon-free.
  • Cummins plans to dedicate 89,000 sq. ft. of its existing Fridley facility to electrolyzer production.
  • Electrolyzer production will take place in Fridley, Minnesota, starting at 500 megawatts (MW) of manufacturing capacity annually, scalable to 1 gigawatt (GW) in the future.
  • Initially, the facility will manufacture its HyLYZER-500 and HyLYZER-5000 proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, with the potential to manufacture other electrolyzer products. 
  • The range of products can accommodate power needs from 1.25MW to more than 200MW for both small- and large-scale hydrogen generation projects.
  • Price Action: CMI shares are trading higher by 0.44% at $219.00 on the last check Monday.
