HyCC BV, a Dutch water electrolysis developer owned jointly by European electrochemical company Nobian and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG), has launched a project to build a 500-MW green hydrogen plant in the Amsterdam port area.
In partnership with the Port of Amsterdam, HyCC has concluded a first feasibility study for Project H2era and will now proceed with conducting a pre-FEED study in the coming months. The goal is to initiate the operation of the plant in 2027.
HyCC pointed out that the regional energy strategy envisages the consumption of large amounts of green hydrogen to decarbonise industry and mobility in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. At present, the project developer is holding talks with various parties to use the future output of the planned facility.
“With the H2era project, we can produce an important part of the hydrogen locally and lay the foundation for a sustainable hydrogen economy in the Amsterdam region,” commented Marcel Galjee, managing director of HyCC.
The company and the Port of Amsterdam are also working with India’s Tata Steel Ltd on the 100-MW H2ermes project at the site of Tata Steel IJmuiden. In February, HyCC also entered into a joint development agreement with BP Plc for a 250-MW project in the port area of Rotterdam.
