Ohmium International (Ohmium), a leading green hydrogen company that designs, manufactures, and deploys advanced Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, announces that it was selected to equip the first green hydrogen project in Croatia.

Ohmium was selected to serve as the PEM electrolyzer supplier for IVICOM, a leading Croatian engineering and construction company, on a project to build a 10MW green hydrogen plant at the INA Rijeka Refinery.

The project will pair Ohmium’s PEM electrolyzers with a new solar power plant to produce green hydrogen to help decarbonize INA’s Rijeka Refinery and supply sustainable fuel for Croatia’s growing transportation market.

The green hydrogen project and affiliated solar plant are supported by the Croatian government’s Recovery and Resilience Facility, which incorporates measures to improve the sustainability and diversity of EU members’ energy supplies.

The project also advances Croatia’s National Hydrogen strategy goals, which are to install 70 MW of hydrogen production facilities by 2030, and ramp up to 2750 MW by 2050, to help achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

“The synergy between IVICOM’s engineering expertise and Ohmium’s cutting-edge PEM electrolyzer technology will be key to successful project realization,” said Dinko Čondić, President of IVICOM’s Management Board. “This partnership is in line with our company vision of prioritizing green projects and green hydrogen innovation for a sustainable future.”

“The green hydrogen installation at the Rijeka Refinery will be a premier example of the green transition in Europe,” said Arne Ballantine, Ohmium CEO. “Ohmium is pleased to be working with leaders such as IVICOM and INA on this pioneering project, as our PEM electrolyzers are uniquely suited for pairing with solar power for promoting refinery decarbonization and green transportation.”
