Plug Power completes first customer filling with liquid green hydrogen at its Georgia plant – for use at Walmart, Amazon and Home Depot locations
Plug Power completes its first customer fill with liquid green hydrogen at its Georgia plant – for use at Walmart, Amazon and Home Depot locations.
Plug Power (NASDAQ: PLUG), the global leader in end-to-end hydrogen solutions for the green hydrogen economy, has completed the first filling of a PLUG tanker with liquid green hydrogen produced at its Woodbine, Georgia, production plant, heading directly to customer locations. This achievement comes one week after the official start of operations at the factory. The Plug refrigerated trailer is filled with liquid hydrogen for use at Walmart, Amazon and Home Depot locations. That’s enough liquid hydrogen to fuel 3,216 forklifts per day.
Plug’s plant in Georgia currently operates eight 5-megawatt electrolyzers and is the largest proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser in the United States. The plant can produce up to 15 tons per day of liquid green hydrogen and serves customers in the eastern U.S. From production to fill, the process was completed in about four days, and now, the trailers will deliver green hydrogen to customers through Plug’s extensive logistics network.

The company’s advanced refrigeration and liquefaction capabilities are an integral part of its operations, allowing green hydrogen to be safely and efficiently transported to customers. Plug Liquid Hydrogen Tankers can transport up to a maximum of 80,000 pounds per GVW. It takes approximately eight gas pipeline trailers to deliver the same amount of gaseous hydrogen as one liquid hydrogen tanker.
