Ørsted, Yara developing 100MW green hydrogen plant in Holland

Danish power company Ørsted and Norweigan fertiliser manufacturer Yara are jointly developing a 100MW wind-powered electrolyser plant aimed at replacing fossil hydrogen with renewable hydrogen in the production of ammonia.

The pioneering project has the potential to abate more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year – equivalent to taking 50,000 conventional cars off the road – and it could be operational in 2024/2025.

To be located at Yara’s Sluiskil plant in the Dutch province of Zeeland, the renewable hydrogen would generate around 75,000 tonnes of green ammonia per year – approximately 10% of the capacity of one of the ammonia plants in Sluiskil – based on dedicated renewable energy supply from Ørsted’s wind farms.

Ørsted is about to inaugurate its Borssele 1&2 offshore wind farm, the second biggest in the world, located off the coast of Zeeland close to the Sluiskil plant.
