HOUSTON, Texas—October 12, 2022— S&B Engineers and Constructors (S&B) has begun construction on Plug Power Inc.’s (NASDAQ: PLUG) Peachtree hydrogen project located in Kingsland, Georgia. The plant will utilize Plug’s proprietary electrolysis technology to produce green hydrogen, which will then be liquefied, stored, and loaded for transport. When complete, the facility will be capable of producing 15 tons of liquefied hydrogen per day.
S&B is providing the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the Peachtree site and previously completed engineering work for Plug’s Pathfinder hydrogen test facility co-located on the site.
“S&B is proud to work with Plug to design and build renewable energy solutions that support the growing hydrogen economy,” said Ray Sherman, President of S&B's Energy Transition, Power and Industrial business. “These projects position S&B and its client at the forefront of hydrogen solutions as our world moves toward a lower-carbon future.”
The Peachtree hydrogen project is expected to create more than 200 construction jobs.
“The Peachtree project is an important step to meeting increasing demand for green hydrogen solutions,” said Sanjay Shrestha, Plug’s General Manager, Energy Solutions & Chief Strategy Officer. “We selected S&B as our partner to develop North America’s green hydrogen supply network based on its reputation, expertise and ability to deliver. We look forward to the successful completion of this project.”
