Gasunie, Shell and Groningen Seaports are joining forces to build a mega offshore wind farm and hydrogen plant in Groningen, the Netherlands, the consortium has announced today.

This would be sufficient to meet the current electricity consumption of around 12.5 million Dutch households, the consortium explained in a statement, and the first ones could be ready in 2027.
The hydrogen plant, a large electrolyser, is planned to be constructed in Eemshaven, where wind energy is converted into green hydrogen.
