TC Energy eyes Crossfield site for low-carbon hydrogen production hub

TC Energy Corporation, in alliance with its partner Nikola Corporation, is considering the plan for hydrogen production. It would be a hub on 140 acres in Crossfield, Alberta, where we can currently find the company’s operation of a natural gas facility. 

Alliance and production 

They have planned to develop this idea at the first-ever Canadian Hydrogen Convention in Edmonton, Alberta. 

They wait for the project’s subjection to the customary regulatory approvals. Also, the company is now waiting on a final investment decision, expected by the end of 2023.  

“At TC Energy, we are energy problem solvers,” said Corey Hessen, Executive Vice President and President, Power, Storage & Origination. “With our focus on creating low-carbon solutions for businesses, we’ve identified our Crossfield site as a hub to produce and distribute hydrogen to serve long-haul transportation, power generation, large industrials, and heating customers across the United States and Canada.”

TC Energy’s previous joint development agreement with Nikola is the key for the company to build hydrogen production hubs in North America. For instance, their plan to use Nikola’s knowledge as a global leader in zero-emissions transportation and energy infrastructure solutions. Also, their knowledge of the U.S.A consumers, since this is an American Company based in Phoenix, Ariz. 

Nikola will become TC Energy’s primary customer for its long-haul fuel cell electric vehicles.

The company will produce approximately 60 tonnes of hydrogen per day. Also, it will have the chance to increase to 150 tonnes per day in the future. 

As some might know, to produce hydrogen is necessary to make the gas react in a chemical plant. During the process, the hydrogen suffers separation from carbon dioxide. The CO2 is captured and sequestrated, lowering emissions to meet clean-energy standards.
