Technip Energies (PARIS:TE), a world-leading engineering and technology company for the energy transition, and John Cockerill, a major designer and manufacturer of large-scale technological solutions and leader in pressurized alkaline electrolyzers, are pleased to announce the formal creation of Rely.

Technip Energies and John Cockerill acknowledge the need to accelerate technology development to support net-zero ambitions. The creation of Rely responds to this urgent need to scale up green hydrogen and power-to-X(1) solutions to decarbonize hard-to-abate industries.

Rely offers end-to-end large-scale solutions, from pre-Final Investment Decision services including technical and financial advisory through to proprietary technologies, project execution, and operation and maintenance.

Rely also fuses a commitment to a standardized approach, developing a unique portfolio of solutions for project of 100MW capacity and above, leveraging the technology and engineering expertise of its parent companies.

With a unique offering integrating all electrolyzer solutions, Rely will bridge green electrons to molecules and help customers reach their decarbonization goals.

Headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, Rely is an asset light joint-venture, 60%-owned by Technip Energies and 40%-owned by John Cockerill, harnessing the expertise of more than 200 hydrogen specialists working across the globe.

Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies stated: “Rely was born out of our commitment to make green hydrogen and power-to-X a feasible low-carbon alternative for industrial-scale applications. We created Rely after carefully listening to our customers’ needs and forming strong convictions about the way to break the industrial and cost barriers associated with large-scale green hydrogen. Partnering with John Cockerill will help us bring green hydrogen power-to-X to life. Moreover, we’re determined to develop a portfolio of technologies that will drive down costs over the long haul. This is just the beginning of the story.”

François Michel, CEO of John Cockerill: To John Cockerill, Rely constitutes a new way of approaching the green hydrogen market, perfectly completing the alkaline electrolyzer offering of John Cockerill Hydrogen which will be the world leader OEM in the field. Rely will also enable us to further develop all the technologies included in a green hydrogen production facility.”

Damien Eyriès, CEO of Rely: “Rely exists to bridge the green electron—molecule gap. We are dedicated to building solutions making green hydrogen and power-to-X production at scale, accessible, certain, safe and affordable. Specifically, we are targeting an important reduction in Levelized Cost of Hydrogen (LCOH). Rely enters the market at the right moment and we are looking forward to presenting our integrated solutions in detail soon.”

(1) Power-to-X refers to the conversion of essentially renewable electricity, which is by nature intermittent, into another storable and transportable energy carrier such as green hydrogen, green ammonia or other sustainable fuels.
