Gigastack project progresses

A UK-based project aiming to demonstrate the delivery of bulk, low-cost and zero-carbon hydrogen through gigawatt (GW) scale polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysis has received £7.5m in funding.

Led by ITM Power, Ørsted, Phillips 66 and Element Energy, the project received its new capital as part of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Hydrogen Supply Competition.

The funding will allow the project to begin phase two, in which the consortium will conduct a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) study on a 100MW electrolyser system using stage installations with a nominal capacity of 20MW.

The FEED study will detail the design of a hydrogen production system connected to a wind farm and industrial off-taker using ITM Power’s electrolyser stack technology and renewable energy directly from Ørsted’s Hornsea Two offshore wind farm. The renewable hydrogen produced will then be supplied to Phillips 66 Limited’s Humber Refinery.
