Dutch sustainable energy utility Eneco has joined as a partner on the PosHydon pilot, Neptune Energy revealed this morning.
Today’s announcement follows the news just over a week ago that Gasunie had also joined as a partner in the pioneering pilot project aiming to create the first offshore hydrogen plant in the Dutch sector of the North sea.
