VoltH2 is set to begin construction of a new large-scale green hydrogen plant with the group revealing today (Oct 12) that it has received building and environmental permits for its construction.
The 25MW plant is strategically located in the North Sea Port of Vlissingen, the Netherlands, within an industrial cluster with it also positioned in close proximity to existing high voltage power and gas infrastructure.
In addition to this, the green hydrogen plant will be able to produce up to 3,500 tonnes of green hydrogen per year and will be scalable to 100MW and 14,000 tonnes.
The plant is also set to be built adjacent to a connection point enabling direct access to the Future European Hydrogen backbone.
A second green hydrogen plant is also planned in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, which will also have a capacity of 3,500 tonnes of hydrogen per year and will be scalable to 75MW and 10,500 tonnes.
Jo-Annes de Bat, Provincial Executive of Zeeland, said, “The VoltH2 projects for two hydrogen electrolysers in Vlissingen and Terneuzen is a good example of how we want to lead the way with green hydrogen in the province of Zeeland.
“This is an excellent initiative that shows how we can bring the sustainability of industry and transport in combination with the large supply of sustainable electricity in the province which is a big step forward in the short term.”
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
