    Iberdrola to build 170 million euro green hydrogen plant in UK

    August 10, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      MADRID (EUROPA PRESS)-Iberdrola will build in the port of Felixtowe (England) a large green hydrogen plant, with an investment of 170 million euros, reported Tuesday in a statement.

      The company said the location will contribute to the decarbonization of the largest freight port in the United Kingdom. The facility, which will be operational in 2026, will have, in a first phase, the capacity to produce 14,000 tons per year of renewable hydrogen, which could be doubled in the future.

      The plant will supply hydrogen to vehicles and machinery used by the port and will be capable of fueling up to 1,300 green hydrogen trucks. It will also be used to power trains transporting goods to the port with non-polluting fuel.

      It will also have the potential to be used for the production of green ammonia or ethanol, which could provide clean fuels for shipping and create opportunities for export to other international markets.

      The project -- to be developed by ScottishPower, the group's UK subsidiary, in conjunction with Hutchison Ports -- is expected to be located on brownfield land within the port, about the size of a soccer pitch.

      The green hydrogen will be produced through an electrolyzer that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable electricity. The port of Felixtowe is in the vicinity of the offshore wind farms that Iberdrola is developing in British waters of the North Sea.

      The company has already commissioned the 714 megawatt (MW) East Anglia ONE in this area and plans to build the East Anglia Hub offshore wind macro-complex, which will group together three projects with a total installed capacity of 2,900 MW: East Anglia One North, East Anglia Two and East Anglia Three.
