Ohmium selected to provide electrolyzers for green H2 at the INA Rijeka refinery in Croatia

Ohmium International was selected to equip the first green H2 project in Croatia. Ohmium was selected to serve as the proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer supplier for IVICOM, a Croatian engineering and construction company, on a project to build a 10-MW green H2 plant at the INA Rijeka Refinery.

The project will pair Ohmium’s PEM electrolyzers with a new solar power plant to produce green H2 to help decarbonize INA’s Rijeka Refinery and supply sustainable fuel for Croatia’s growing transportation market. The green H2 project and affiliated solar plant are supported by the Croatian government’s Recovery and Resilience Facility, which incorporates measures to improve the sustainability and diversity of EU members’ energy supplies. The project also advances Croatia’s National H2 strategy goals, which are to install 70 MW of H2 production facilities by 2030, and ramp up to 2,750 MW by 2050, to help achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

“The synergy between IVICOM’s engineering expertise and Ohmium’s cutting-edge PEM electrolyzer technology will be key to successful project realization,” said Mr. Dinko Čondić, President of IVICOM’s Management Board. “This partnership is in line with our company vision of prioritizing green projects and green H2 innovation for a sustainable future.”

“The green H2 installation at the Rijeka Refinery will be a premier example of the green transition in Europe,” said Arne Ballantine, Ohmium CEO. “Ohmium is pleased to be working with leaders such as IVICOM and INA on this pioneering project, as our PEM electrolyzers are uniquely suited for pairing with solar power for promoting refinery decarbonization and green transportation.”
