Green hydrogen produced on an industrial scale with offshore wind is the subject of a study being carried out by the Offshore Wind Power Limited (OWPL) consortium.
The consortium – made up of Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, TotalEnergies and Scottish developer Renewable Infrastructure Development Group (RIDG) – will carry out the study on the island of Flotta in Orkney, Scotland.
Mike Hay, RIDG commercial director, said: “The production of green hydrogen is a hugely exciting opportunity for both offshore wind and the Scottish supply chain. Projects with substantial capacity factors, such as the West of Orkney Windfarm, could deliver highly competitive power to facilities like the Flotta Hydrogen Hub which could, in turn, supply demand for hydrogen both nationally and internationally.
