The First Pioneer Project: Our green and CO2-neutral industry park

After developing it in-house, the APEX Group launched Europe’s largest, at that time, grid-connected hydrogen plant at the company’s Rostock/Laage site in May 2021. This fully operational power-to-hydrogen and power-to-power reference plant has an electrolysis capacity of 2 MW.


It demonstrates the full range of possible hydrogen uses:

  • production from green electricity
  • storage
  • reconversion to electricity from a combined heat and power plant and/or fuel cell
  • a refueling infrastructure for buses, trucks and cars
  • filling into 300 bar trailers for transport to regional hydrogen users

To achieve maximum efficiency, the plant is combined with a battery storage system.
