Who we are

Nordex Electrolyzers S.L. is a joint venture between two experienced partners. The Nordex Group, one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers with over 35 years experience, and Sodena, a public company of the Government of Navarre, Spain, that has been investing in innovative projects for over 40 years, have joined forces to manufacture and supply alkaline electrolyzers. Our goal is to unlock the potential of remote sites with exceptional renewable energy capacity factors for the production of green hydrogen, a sustainable energy vector obtained from

the electrolysis of water, using renewable energy, like wind. After production, green hydrogen can be stored and transported to be used to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors, such as aviation, maritime or steel industries, driving the green energy transition forward. The demand for hydrogen is projected to experience a remarkable surge of approximately 700 percent in the next three decades. The electrolyzer is a key component in the production of green hydrogen.

Recent Developments


June 17, 2024

On June 17, 2024, Nordex Electrolyzers inaugurated a test bench in its plant at Lumbier and presented its first in-house-developed prototype of a 500-kW pressurized alkaline electrolyzer to the public. It is the biggest electrolyzer designed, manufactured, and assembled entirely in Spain. The 500-kW prototype can produce more than 10 kg/h of hydrogen with an energy consumption of less than 50 kWh/kg. It is specially designed to work with power changes and frequent stops. This, together with the right selection of materials, will allow Nordex Electrolyzers to differentiate its product from other manufacturers. Hydrogen is set to become one of the most important energy vectors of the future. Not only will it allow for better management and integration of renewable energies, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions, but will also allow for the decarbonization of many industrial sectors that currently require large amounts of hydrogen for their processes.

Irene Huarte, Director of Business Development and Sales at Nordex Electrolyzers, took part in the “Recovery and Resilience Plans boosting competitiveness and accelerating the clean energy transition” session during the European Sustainable Energy Week. During her presentation, Huarte highlighted Nordex Electrolyzers’ success as a beneficiary of Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) funds. The company received funding for the development of a proprietary pressurized alkaline electrolyzer technology. This project, classified as an Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI), aims to advance green hydrogen production, boost European industrial base and contribute to Europe’s clean energy transition. “Nordex Electrolyzers is proud to be part of the RRF program,” said Huarte. “Our innovative electrolyzer technology will play a crucial role in decarbonizing industries and achieving climate goals.” The event, organized by the European Commission and held in Brussels, serves as a platform for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and policy discussions.


February 29, 2024

At the event, which was held in Madrid in February, we explored the advancements and obstacles of renewable hydrogen technology, specifically the Hy2Tech and Hy2Use waves of the IPCEI H2. The Hy2Tech round table, moderated by María Eguaras from Zabala Innovation, included notable industry representatives. Among these was Nordex Electrolyzers Chief Technical Officer Javier Fernández de Manzanos. He talked about his company’s project within the IPCEI H2 framework, which aims to design and produce a flexible alkaline electrolyzer. The goal is to adapt to wind farms and photovoltaic plants, validate prototypes, and achieve a more competitive levelized cost of hydrogen by 2028 through series production of the technology.
