Environmental Resources Management (ERM) has received £427,000 from the UK Government to develop its project which looks at the production of green hydrogen from offshore wind.
The Dolphyn project, funded as part of the Government’s £20m Hydrogen Supply Programme, showcases a floating semi-submersible (floating platform) design with an integrated wind turbine, PEM electrolysis and desalination facilities.
The system is designed so that it can be deployed as a stand-alone or as multiple connected units which form an offshore hydrogen wind farm. A 400turbine farm (20 x 20 array) would have a capacity of 4GW, producing over 320,000 tonnes of hydrogen per annum, enough to heat 1.5 million UK homes.
“Using the power of hydrogen could help cut emissions, create jobs and make industrial processes cleaner and greener, benefitting the whole economy as we work towards net zero by 2050,” said Lord Duncan, the UK’s Minister for Climate Change.
