Vattenfall has been awarded GBP 9.3 million in innovation funding from the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 fund by the UK Government.
The funding will be used to develop a hydrogen-producing offshore wind turbine, with the electrolyser sited directly onto an existing operational turbine. The pilot project, called ‘Hydrogen Turbine 1 (HT1), at Vattenfall’s Offshore Wind Farm in Aberdeen Bay will have an output of 8MW. The hydrogen will be piped to shore at Aberdeen Harbor. Work will commence immediately with the goal of first production as early as 2025.
