Howden has secured a contract with INOVYN – a subsidiary of INEOS. Howden will supply a low-pressure piston compressor as well as a high-pressure diaphragm compressor for INOVYN’s hydrogen production facility in Runcorn, UK.

As a global leader in hydrogen compression solutions, Howden was selected for its extensive experience and innovative technology. Delivering an efficient design-to-cost approach, Howden customised its solution to fit INOVYN’s needs while also reducing the total cost of ownership of its operations.

Already Europe’s largest operator of electrolysis technology used to make clean hydrogen, INOVYN’s Runcorn site can power over 1,000 buses or 2,000 trucks with low-carbon fuel. Harnessing Howden’s state-of-the-art compressor technology, INOVYN can now supply compressed fuel-cell quality hydrogen to the transport and industrial sectors. With Howden’s support, INOVYN is able to tap into the emerging hydrogen fuel-cell market in the UK and boost its revenue from co-produced hydrogen, realising the business’ mission to lead the UK to net-zero carbon emissions.

Our partnership with INOVYN demonstrates Howden’s expertise in developing and delivering innovative yet cost-effective technology. Harnessing over 100 years of leadership in the compression of hydrogen, Howden is playing a critical role in the clean energy transition.

INOVYN’s Runcorn site has already made impressive strides in producing low-carbon fuel to replace fossil fuels. Therefore, we are excited to be supporting this innovative project which has the potential to secure the UK’s green energy transition to net-zero by 2050.
