Shell exploring world's largest green hydrogen project

03 Mar 2020 10:57 AM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

Oil major joins a feasibility study that could lead to gigawatts of Dutch offshore wind being built purely for the manufacture of green hydrogen.

Oil major Shell has started feasibility work on what would be the largest green hydrogen project in the world.

The plans would see 3 to 4 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity established in the North Sea by 2030 purely for the manufacture of green hydrogen. Electrolyzers will be based in Eemshaven, along the northern coast of the Netherlands, and potentially offshore as well. 

The project could be expanded to 10 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2040 dedicated to green hydrogen production.

Shell Netherlands, Dutch gas grid operator Gasunie and the port of Groningen are the founding partners of the NortH2 project, with the trio looking for others to join the consortium during the one-year feasibility study. They hope to develop a “European Hydrogen Valley” cluster.

Gasunie will develop the network infrastructure required for the storage and distribution of hydrogen.

“This project offers opportunities throughout the entire hydrogen chain,” said Marjan van Loon, president-director of Shell Netherlands, in a statement.

“In order to realize this project, we will need several new partners," van Loon said. "Together we will have to pioneer and innovate to bring together all the available knowledge and skills that are required. The energy transition calls for guts, boldness and action."
