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.
