Total leads Danish hydrogen project

DeepWind members Total and Floating Power Plant have joined forces to assess the possibility of carrying out offshore production of oil and gas using green energy from wind and wave power and converting it into hydrogen.

The O/G Decarb innovation project will examine the possibility of using a combined wind and wave technology on a floating foundation to store the energy before converting it into hydrogen via electrolysis.

“This is an exciting an innovative project, which Total is supporting because it has the potential to solve one of the challenges of electrifying production platforms using offshore wind produced near the platform,” said Ole Hansen, Head of Development, Business & JV Management at Total E&P Denmark.

“By examining how wave and wind energy can be converted into hydrogen, the study can help create a reliable green energy supply for platforms that can be used on days without wind.”
