October 14 (Renewables Now) - European green hydrogen infrastructure developer VoltH2 has secured construction and environmental permits for a 25-MW electrolyser to produce green hydrogen at the North Sea Dutch port of Vlissingen.
The project is set to create the first large-scale green hydrogen plant in the Benelux Region, the developer said on Tuesday.
The facility will be capable of producing up to 3,500 tonnes of green hydrogen per year, with its capacity to be scalable to 100 MW to produce 14,000 tonnes annually. Its location, in the province of Zeeland, offers access to high voltage power and gas infrastructure and renewable power generation capacity. The selected site is in proximity to dedicated hydrogen infrastructure.
Additionally, VoltH2 is proposing to build another green hydrogen plant in Terneuzen, Zeeland, together with Virya Energy. The project is currently at advanced permitting stages and is expected to result in the production of 3,500 tonnes of hydrogen per year, scalable to 10, 500 tonnes.
Swedish engineering consultancy Sweco has been hired to design the Vlissingen and Terneuzen plants.
VoltH2 is also developing more sites in Belgium, France and Germany.
