Acciona to lead OceanH2 project

Spanish renewable energy producer Acciona said it is leading an industrial research project that seeks to build the world’s first offshore green hydrogen plant powered by floating wind and photovoltaic technology.

Dubbed OceanH2, the project will study different implementation scenarios for an offshore hybrid power generation system, evaluating the design alternatives along the whole hydrogen production, storage and distribution chain to identify solutions that have the greatest development potential based on the proposed new materials.

Following the study, Acciona said it will conceptually validate the solution at laboratory scale, as well as its integration into an IoT (Internet of Things) platform, which will facilitate the plant’s operation, maintenance and management using smart monitoring.

In addition, the challenges thrown up by its potential construction and scaling-up will be examined using an innovation process that enables the initially proposed design to be optimised.
