Hygro has begun construction a hydrogen turbine in Wieringermeer, the Netherlands.
Part of green hydrogen initiative Duwaal, which aims to develop the green hydrogen distribution regionally, the hydrogen turbine will produce electricity and green hydrogen.
The project has been financed by Tridos Bank and sustainable investment institution Meewind.
The first phase of the project will realise the wind turbine and develop the hydrogen production system.
The wind turbine is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2021.
Hugo Groenemans, CEO of HYGRO, is proud to start construction. “We have been working on the green hydrogen production and distribution chain for some time. The preliminary phase was a challenge, as usual with innovations,” he said.
“This next step shows that other parties recognise the solution as well. Together with Triodos Bank and Meewind, we are starting the green hydrogen production and distribution chain.”
