    Scottish jam producer R&W Scott eyeing green H2 solutions

    May 16, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 16 (Renewables Now) - Scotland-based food manufacturer R&W Scott Ltd, which produces jams, chocolate coatings and confectionery fillings, is working with utility company ScottishPower to look into prospects of using green hydrogen and renewable energy to lower its carbon footprint.

      ScottishPower, as part of a consortium, is currently developing a 20-MW electrolysis project at its 539-MW Whitelee wind farm near Glasgow to produce green hydrogen using a mix of wind, solar and battery storage technologies. The consortium, which includes industrial gases provider BOC Ltd and UK hydrogen energy solutions company ITM Power Plc (LON:ITM), has secured GBP 9.4 million (USD 11.5m/EUR 11m) in funding from the UK governing for the first phase of the project.

      The partnership between R&W Scott and ScottishPower currently revolves around exploring ways for the premium jam producer to make its operations greener.

      “It’s great to be working with R&W Scott to consider how the company can contribute to Scotland’s Net Zero future through creating bespoke green solutions that meet its energy needs,” said Barry Carruthers, Hydrogen Director at ScottishPower.

      Asked whether R&W Scott made a commitment to off-take Whitelee’s green hydrogen, a spokesperson for ScottishPower replied that the companies are at the very start of the process of looking at the green solutions, and there is nothing definitive at this point.
