bp and Ørsted have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to work together to develop a ‎project for industrial-scale production of green hydrogen. In their proposed Lingen Green Hydrogen project, the two firms intend to build an initial 50MW electrolyser and associated infrastructure at bp’s Lingen Refinery in north-‎west Germany.
 
This will be powered by renewable energy generated by an Ørsted offshore ‎wind farm in the North Sea and the hydrogen produced will be used in the refinery.‎ The 50 MW electrolyser project is expected to produce one tonne an hour of green ‎hydrogen. This would be sufficient to replace around 20% of ‎the refinery’s current grey hydrogen consumption.
 
The companies plan to make a final investment decision (FID) early 2022, subject ‎to appropriate enabling policies being in place. The companies anticipate the project could be ‎operational by 2024.
