Green hydrogen and decarbonization services continue to increase

April 10, 2024
Avid Solutions includes Rockwell Automation’s PlantPAx and FactoryTalk Historian in green H2 offerings

Avid Solutions, a Gold Rockwell Automation System Integrator Partner specializing in process expertise and digitally enabled products, offering decarbonization and green hydrogen (H2) services, has expanded its team by 35 members in the past year to meet the increasing interest for sustainable energy projects.

Avid Solutions’ contributions to low-carbon emission initiatives include Rockwell’s PlantPAx distributed control system (DCS) for a standard human-machine interface (HMI) and integration platform, and FactoryTalk Historian for data collection, trending and dashboards.

“We are seeing many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), process licensors and producers entering the green H2 economy. They need expertise to scale, as well as speed to market entry," said Tom O'Reilly, vice president, sustainability, Rockwell Automation. "With more than three decades of expertise in the process industries and helping OEMs scale, Avid Solutions is uniquely suited to help new green H2 clients implement best-in-class technology and ensure their business needs are met."

Rockwell Automation collaborates closely with Avid Solutions, which has supported projects across various sectors, including electrolyzer OEMs, H2 liquefaction licensors and compressor OEMs. Avid engineers are actively involved in several ongoing projects, including an initiative in Texas aimed at delivering 45 tons of green hydrogen per day. These projects have led to record revenue and significant growth in the company’s Texas and Georgia offices, with the Brazilian team doubling in size to meet the needs of clients in the sustainability sector.

“This growth and recognition underscore our efforts in shaping a cleaner, greener future,” said Gordon Bordelon, vice president, operations and technology, Avid Solutions. “The emergence of the hydrogen economy opens up exciting avenues in industrial manufacturing, power generation and mobility. For producers looking to seize these opportunities, it's important to partner with seasoned experts who can harness advanced technologies and confidently manage risks."

Mike Kiehl, Avid Solutions’ vice president, sales and marketing, adds: “We are located in one of the seven Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs (H2Hubs) selected through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), and we are actively involved in most of them. Avid Solutions continues to deepen relationships with engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms in the industry and solidify our position as a leader in decarbonization efforts. Our goals are to enable the production of 450 tons of green hydrogen per day by 2025 and 1,000 tons per day by 2030.”
