The Kitsim H2 Project is currently expected to be developed in multiple phases designed to accommodate a range of market growth rates and customer needs.
The initial phase will produce approximately 2,100 tonnes of net-zero H2 and 16,000 tonnes of O2 annually.
Each subsequent phase is currently planned to produce just over 16,000 tonnes of H2 and 130,000 tonnes of O2 per year for total production rate of approximately 51,000 tonnes of net-zero H2 and 410,000 tonnes of O2 annually at full build out.
Phase One is felt to be large enough to allow IEPS to take full advantage of current electrolyzer economies of scale for H2 production while small enough to not exceed current and expected short-term market demand for net-zero H2.
The phased approach to future development also allows IEPS to take advantage of expected technology and cost improvements and coordinate future production rates with increases in customer demands.
