FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF, Jan 13 (Reuters) – Thyssenkrupp’s (TKAG.DE) electrolysis business is aiming for proceeds of up to 600 million euros ($687 million) by selling new shares in a possible initial public offering this year, betting on the $130 billion hydrogen sector it supplies.

Thyssenkrupp plans to keep a majority in the business – which is being rebranded as Thyssenkrupp Nucera – following any IPO and aims to maintain the current shareholding ratio with its Italian co-owner De Nora (IPO-DENR.MI), said Volkmar Dinstuhl, who leads the conglomerate’s Multi Tracks division.

This implies a free-float of up to 25%.

Nucera’s electrolysis technology uses power to split water into oxygen and hydrogen, allowing CO2 heavy sectors, including steelmaking, refining and fertilisers, to decarbonise using “green” hydrogen.
