Cutting-edge technology meets guaranteed green hydrogen performance in the North American market

Proven, reliable, and effective electrolyzer technology for the large-scale market—now available in the US and Canada

For 200 years, John Cockerill has spearheaded innovations across multiple industries, becoming a sought-after partner for hydrogen generation companies and a well-established partner in Europe. With an estimated 20% share of the global green hydrogen electrolyzer market in 2022, John Cockerill is now expanding to North America. Our gigafactory in the Houston, Texas area will produce 1 GW of electrolyzers per year, with 30-MW pressurized alkaline electrolyzer systems that produce hydrogen at 6,000 Nm3/hr and support both flexible and stable loads.

Top-tier local production and manufacturing expertise

We believe that local manufacturing and service make all the difference. Our US location takes advantage of the incredible energy industry expertise found in the Houston area, while facilitating adaptation to local norms and standards, streamlining logistics and delivery, minimizing service response, and enabling our customers to meet their domestic content requirements. A local presence also reduces the risks associated with manufacturing and transportation, shortening the distances that base materials and finished products need to travel to reach our customers.
