FuelCell Energy (“FCE”) and TuNur Ltd sign an MoU to integrate FCE’s leading Fuel Cell and Electrolyser Technologies

FuelCell Energy, Inc., a global leader in manufacturing stationary fuel cell energy platforms for decarbonizing power and producing hydrogen to enable a world empowered by clean energy– today announced that it has executed a memorandum of understanding with TuNur Ltd., an independent renewable energy and green hydrogen developer focused on delivering low-carbon electricity and hydrogen to North Africa and Europe.

Tunisia is the central point in the Mediterranean and offers huge potential for green electricity, hydrogen and ammonia for its own domestic needs and for export between Africa and Europe. The country’s very high solar resource enables reliable, low-cost solar production, and the presence of a pipeline that extends from Tunisia to Italy is ideal for leveraging FuelCell Energy’s electrolysis platform to generate hydrogen and transport it into Europe.

”Achieving the ambitious goals of the North African and European clean energy ecosystem hinges on innovative developers like TuNur who are building green energy and hydrogen production solutions,” said Jason Few, President and CEO of FuelCell Energy. “Working together with TuNur, we are eager to help support the energy transition while advancing regional climate goals using our differentiated electrolysis platform to produce low-to-zero-carbon hydrogen. Our solutions will further North Africa and the EU’s goal toward greater energy independence and security.”

“Tunisia has important targets for renewable energy and is perfectly positioned to be a key energy hub in the Mediterranean region by utilizing renewable energy to supply its own energy needs and in parallel for exportation to Europe, creating a new sustainable export industry,” said Daniel Rich, CEO of TuNur. “We look forward to working with FuelCell Energy to integrate their low-to-zero-carbon and hydrogen production technology into projects to provide low-cost, clean energy to consumers in Europe and North Africa.”

TuNur and Hitachi Energy work toward the export of renewables from Tunisia to Europe

TuNur have entered a cooperation agreement with Hitachi Energy to evaluate the solutions for large-scale renewable energy exports across the Mediterranean region using high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology, helping to foster renewable energy deployment, job creation and sustainable development in Tunisia, and to further decarbonize European grids. HVDC is the most feasible technology for transferring such large amounts of renewable energy over very long distances with minimal power losses.

Tunisia has important targets for renewable energy deployment to support its growing energy demand and decarbonization objectives. In parallel this abundant and infinite energy can be exported to neighbouring load centers, creating a sustainable export industry. TuNur is developing a portfolio of renewable energy projects for the local market and for export markets, including working toward the deployment of additional HVDC solutions in the Mediterranean region. Together the two companies intend to apply their complementary competencies to achieve their vision of a sustainable future – TuNur harnessing its experience of developing large-scale integrated solar and storage projects, while Hitachi Energy contributes its pioneering and market leading HVDC technology.
