Ørsted begins construction of 1,000kg of hydrogen a day H2RES project

A groundbreaking ceremony of the H2RES project has marked the onsite construction start of Ørsted’s first renewable hydrogen project today (May 17).

The H2RES project is a proposed 2MW electrolysis plant with hydrogen storage that will be constructed in Denmark by Danish power company Ørsted along with its project partners.

The project will investigate how to best combine an efficient electrolyser with the fluctuating power supply from offshore wind, using Ørsted’s two 3.6MW offshore wind turbines at Avedøre Holme.

The plant is expected to produce 1,000kg of renewable hydrogen a day, which will be used to fuel zero-emission transport in the Greater Copenhagen area and on Zealand with the first hydrogen expected to be produced in late 2021.
