    Uniper, partners advance 30-MW green H2 project in Germany

    March 20, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      March 20 (Renewables Now) - A consortium of energy companies in Germany is making progress on a project for the construction of a 30-MW green hydrogen plant at an energy park near Leipzig that will be powered with wind energy and will supply the chemicals industry in the region.

      Terrawatt Planungsgesellschaft mbH, one of the companies involved in the project, said that a permit under the Federal Immission Control Act (BImschG) has been granted for the construction of the wind park that will power an electrolyser at the Bad Lauchstaedt energy park.

      In addition, a contract has been signed with Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S for the supply of eight V162-6.2 turbines, each with a nominal capacity of 6.2 MW.

      Terrawatt expects the construction of the wind farm at the energy park to begin in the first half of this year with completion targeted by the end of 2023.

      The target="_blank">electrolyser will be supplied by Dresden-based manufacturer Sunfire GmbH in 2024.

      The Bad Lauchstaedt energy park is a so-called real laboratory for the large-scale production, storage, transport and application of green hydrogen. The project aims to test the entire green hydrogen value chain on an industrial scale. The hydrogen produced by the 30-MW electrolysis plant from wind energy will be temporarily stored in a salt cavern designed for this purpose. Then, the hydrogen will be supplied to off-takers from the chemicals industry in the region via a converted gas pipeline and will be used also for the decarbonisation of urban mobility. Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) is funding the project as a real laboratory for the energy transition with around EUR 34 million (USD 36.1m).

      The other partners on the project include Uniper SE, gas network operator Ontras, gas distributor VNG and DBI – Gas Technological Institute gGmbH.
