“The commissioning of the first phase of production with 30 thousand tons output is scheduled for the end of 2026, and reaching the rated capacity of 100 thousand tons – for 2030”, the Governor informed.
Rusatom Overseas (the subsidiary of Rosatom) has already signed the MoU with Korean companies for supplying hydrogen.
According to the project’s feasibility study, the share of Russian technologies in the enterprise may constitute up to 80%. The plant will become an element of the Eastern hydrogen cluster, which will also include a specialised testing ground for Russian hydrogen-based technologies.
The construction of the hydrogen producing plant and the hydrogen testing ground will take place within the pilot project of developing carbon-neutral economy on the Sakhalin Island.
