Shearwater Energy SMR wind-hybrid energy project progresses

A new wind-SMR and hydrogen production hybrid energy project in North Wales, being developed by UK-based Shearwater Energy, could produce over three million kilograms of green hydrogen a year for the UK’s transport sector.

Sharing a project update today (15th Jan) the hybrid clean energy company said it has selected NuScale Power to develop the SMR technology for the project and has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the company for further collaboration.

Under the MoU, Shearwater and NuScale will generally explore opportunities for the combined generation of nuclear power based on NuScale’s leading SMR technology, offshore wind energy and hydrogen production at sites in the UK, with a flagship opportunity being explored at Wylfa on Anglesey.

Shearwater Energy has also submitted an outline proposal to the British Government and the devolved governments of Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, all of whom stand to derive considerable economic benefits in connection with the proposed project.
