Plug Power broke ground recently on an $84 million green hydrogen fuel production plant in Camden County, Ga., where 15 tons of liquid green hydrogen will be produced per day.
Located at the Camden County Industrial Park in Kingsland, the facility will create 24 jobs. As soon as summer 2022, Plug Power will be hiring for careers in operations, engineering, maintenance and logistics.
Plug Power’s vertically integrated GenKey solution ties together critical elements to power and fuel and provides services to customers including Amazon, BMW, Southern Company, The Home Depot, Group Carrefour, and Walmart. The company is continuing to expand to markets including zero-emission on-road vehicles, robotics, and data centers.
“With this hydrogen production plant, we are expanding our green hydrogen network to provide zero-emissions fuel to customers in Georgia and across the Southeast,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power. “Investing in Camden County is the right choice to support Plug Power’s continued growth.”
Strategically located near I-95 on the Eastern Seaboard, this new zero-emission fuel production plant will help the company better serve its industrial customers across the Southeastern U.S. The site provides easy access to the Ports of Savannah and Brunswick.
“Having Plug Power expand its footprint to Georgia is exciting news for this growing industry,” said Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) Executive Director Griff Lynch. “The Ports of Savannah and Brunswick provide the capacity needed for auto part imports and auto exports, making the I-95 corridor perfectly suited for this type of development.”
