The UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has awarded £13m to two world-first hydrogen projects led by HyNet.
A low carbon hydrogen project which involves Johnson Matthey as technology provider, SNC-Lavalin as project delivery specialists and Essar Oil UK as owner and operator, was awarded £7.5m of the total funding.
The project will develop the UK’s first low carbon hydrogen plant at Essar Oil UK’s Stanlow refinery in Ellesmere Port, which will produce 3TWh of hydrogen for industrial and eventually domestic customers in the region.
