Vattenfall to make hydrogen-producing wind turbine
The cash from the UK government’s Earn Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Provide 2 fund will seemingly be primitive for a pilot mission at Vattenfall’s Offshore Wind Farm in Aberdeen Bay.
The electrolyser to manufacture the hydrogen will seemingly be sited straight away onto an unique operational turbine.
The pilot mission can possess an output of 8MW and is at risk of be ready to manufacture enough hydrogen each and day-after-day to energy a hydrogen bus to shuttle 24,000km. The hydrogen will seemingly be piped to shore at Aberdeen Harbor.
“We’re more than pleased with the federal government funding,” said UK country supervisor for Vattenfall Danielle Lane. “Inserting hydrogen electrolysers on offshore wind generators is at risk of be the quickest and most cost-efficient approach of providing fossil-free hydrogen at scale.”
The mission – referred to as Hydrogen Turbine 1 (HT1) – goals to be first mission on the earth to test the corpulent integration of hydrogen production with an offshore wind turbine. HT1 might possibly presumably also design out pattern and consent processes for big-scale hydrogen projects co-located with offshore wind farms to bustle up future pattern.
Work will birth straight away with the procedure of first production as early as 2025.
