Fisher German has been awarded a contract to deliver the land and consents services required to develop Cadent’s 85km hydrogen pipeline as part of the HyNet North West project.

The proposed project is made up of several different elements, including upgrades to existing facilities to produce hydrogen on scale, a carbon dioxide pipeline scheme and the development of a new hydrogen pipeline which will transport the alternative fuel between HyNet partners and future customers.

This will be key in the development of the UK’s hydrogen economy with the necessary pipeline required needed to ensure vast amounts of hydrogen can be transported across the North West.

Mark Gilkes, of Fisher German, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be part of this ground-breaking project.

“The proposed HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline project is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) which will require a Development Consent Order (DCO), and Fisher German has a vast amount of expertise in this area, with this alone being our third NSIP pipeline scheme.

“It’s therefore fantastic that we are able to play a part in an NSIP which is at the cutting edge of carbon reduction and will have such a significant impact on the UK achieving its Net Zero targets.

“Our teams are locally based and have existing clients across the area, so will be using this knowledge to facilitate delivery.

“We anticipate that the project will take around three years, with the scheme aiming to help to decarbonise multiple sectors of the economy from 2025 onwards.”
