Vision Hydrogen and Virya Energy receives permits for green hydrogen project
The project has received all environmental and construction permits required to proceed with development.
Vision Hydrogen Corporation (VisionH2) has been granted permits for a 25 MW green hydrogen plant in the North Sea Port of Terneuzen, the Netherlands.
Vision Hydrogen subsidiary VoltH2, in partnership with Virya Energy, reaches a critical developmental milestone towards developing a 25 MW green hydrogen production facility with tube-trailer loading and integrated distribution facilities. It will allow scaling up production capacity at this site to 75 MW. At 25 MW, the plant will produce up to 3.5k tonnes/year of green hydrogen and up to 10.5k tonnes/year of H2 output at 75 MW.
VisionH2 and Virya plan to build the initial 25 MW electrolysis plant using proven, commercially available technology. Projected development costs for the project’s initial phase are estimated at €35 – €40 million. After receiving all the required permits, the project is now in the final statutory consultation and review period.
The site is located in the North Sea Port of Terneuzen, near the existing high voltage power and gas infrastructure and a large renewable power generation facility to supply future offtake of clean hydrogen.
It is also close to the 150 kV ground station of TenneT, the Dutch national high voltage grid operator, and connection point to the Yara-Dow-Zeeland Refinery Pipeline, which may be repurposed for H2 transport to the Zeeland Refinery in future. The Ghent-Terneuzen Canal is adjacent to the site, providing water access to the major European Port of Ghent.
