VoltH2 picks Sweco for green hydrogen production plants
VoltH2 will identify and secure additional sites for developing green hydrogen infrasturture in Europe
Vision Hydrogen Corporation, a US renewable technology company, stated that VoltH2 has commissioned Sweco (a Swedish headquartered engineering and architecture consultancy) to design two 25 MW green hydrogen plants in the North Sea Port, in Vlissingen and Terneuzen, the Netherlands.
VoltH2 Operating BV is a privately-owned limited liability company registered in the Netherlands, dedicated to developing green Hydrogen production infrastructure projects. Vision Hydrogen Corporation, which focused on hydrogen production for transportation and power requirements to contribute to a clean energy environment, holds a 17.5% interest in VoltH2.
Arron Smyth, VoltH2’s President, said, “Green hydrogen is positioned to be the intelligent, clean energy alternative across a broad range of applications.”
He further added, “Every day, more and more businesses are looking at HPRE [hydrogen production through renewable energy] projects. We are excited to be part of this significant growth opportunity.”
The VoltH2 hydrogen electrolysis plants will be the first in the area and proximity to the green energy supplies with direct access to the Netherlands’ extensive transportation infrastructure. The project will be designed to be scalable in phases, reaching up to 100 MW by 2030.
It will have dedicated hydrogen storage and access to multimodal transport systems to support the distribution of hydrogen. VoltH2 will assess the feasibility of installing an onsite hydrogen fuelling station to supply hydrogen to vehicles directly. VoltH2 also aims to supply hydrogen to other industrial customers in the area, potentially through dedicated pipelines. In the area, one targeted customer is known to consume about 150k tonnes of Hydrogen already.
