Rugged Cell

Hydrogen Optimized’s RuggedCell™ patented high-power water electrolyzers deliver low-cost clean hydrogen at scale.

Lifetime Efficiency

RuggedCell™ water electrolyzers are designed for a 20 year plant life with minimal efficiency loss.


Dynamic Power Response

Adaptable to wide variations in electrical power inputs from intermittent renewable sources.

Low-Cost Maintenance

Electrolyzer components can be quickly and efficiently “swapped out” on-site for minimal plant down-time.

No Iridium, No PFAS

RuggedCell™ electrolyzers are free of Iridium and other Platinum-group metals, and contain no PFAS “forever chemicals”.


  • High-power architecture enables single modules up to 50 MW
  • Enables plants from tens of megawatts to gigawatt scale
