Natick-based Electric Hydrogen will soon be putting its Devens gigafactory to use, as it has entered an agreement to provide a 100-megawatt electrolyzer system to New Fortress Energy in Texas.

Electrolysis is the process used to split water into its component oxygen and hydrogen atoms, according to the United States Department of Energy. NFE’s Texas plant is expected to produce 50 tons per day of hydrogen to be used as an alternative energy source, according to a Tuesday press release for Electric Hydrogen.

“We are excited to enter into this agreement with Electric Hydrogen, a pioneer in electrolysis technology that shares our vision of enabling clean, abundant, and low-cost hydrogen to accelerate the energy transition around the world,” NFE Chairman & CEO Wes Edens said in the press release. “We are focused on developing scalable solutions that have a real impact on decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors of the global economy and, given our background, believe we are uniquely positioned to be an early mover in the market.”

The Texas plant is expected to begin producing hydrogen in the fourth quarter 2024 and be fully operational by 2025. The site has the capacity to double in output in the future.

Electric Hydrogen announced in May it leased a 187,236 manufacturing facility at Boston developer King Street Properties' Pathway Devens development. The factory is on schedule to produce up to 1.2 gigawatts of electrolyzer stacks annually, according to Tuesday’s press release.
