    Vattenfall gets UK govt funding to pilot hydrogen at offshore wind turbine

    May 19, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 19 (Renewables Now) - Swedish utility Vattenfall AB has been awarded GBP 9.3 million (USD 11.6m/EUR 11m) in UK government funding to produce hydrogen at one of the turbines at its 97-MW Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, also known as European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).

      Vattenfall is one of the winners, announced today, of the UK government’s GBP-60-million Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 (HySupply 2) competition.

      The 8-MW pilot project, called Hydrogen Turbine 1 (HT1), seeks to deliver the world’s first hydrogen-producing offshore wind turbine. An electrolyser will be integrated into an existing operational turbine and the hydrogen produced will be piped to the coast at Aberdeen Harbor.

      The hydrogen the turbine will produce a day will be enough for 24,000 kilometre (14,913 mile) travel of a hydrogen bus. Work on the scheme will start immediately with first production targeted as early as 2025, the company said.

      “Placing hydrogen electrolysers on offshore wind turbines is likely to be the quickest and cheapest way of providing fossil-free hydrogen at scale,” said Danielle Lane, UK country manager for Vattenfall.

      The project will also map out development and consent processes to facilitate future development.

      Among other winning projects is ERM Dolphyn, which will focus on green hydrogen production from offshore floating wind.
