Dutch consortium to develop large-scale green hydrogen project

In the Netherlands, a consortium of Gasunie, Groningen Seaports and Shell Nederland announced that they intend to launch the NortH2 project: the production of green hydrogen using renewable electricity generated by a mega offshore wind farm, 3 to 4 gigawatts in 2030, contributing to the objectives of the Dutch Climate Accord. Additionally, it has the ambition to grow to about 10 gigawatts around 2040. Green hydrogen production, initially in the Eemshaven and later possibly also offshore, is expected to be around 800,000 tons per year by 2040. This would avoid about seven megatons of CO2 per year. NortH2 has the support of the province of Groningen and is looking for partners to expand the consortium and realize this project.
