Offshore Wind to Hydrogen Project Secures GBP 7.5 Million Funding

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Offshore Wind.

This is the first two paragraphs.

The next phase of Gigastack, a renewable hydrogen project, has secured GBP 7.5 million funding as part of the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Hydrogen Supply Competition.

The Gigastack project, led by ITM Power, Ørsted, Phillips 66 Limited, and Element Energy, will show how renewable hydrogen derived from offshore wind can support the UK’s 2050 net-zero greenhouse gas emission target.

Points from the article.

  1. A 100 MW system will be designed.
  2. Modules with a capacity of 20 MW will be used.
  3. Energy will be delivered directly from Ørsted’s Hornsea Two wind farm.
  4. Some of the hydrogen produced will be used in Phillips 66 Humber Refinery.
  5. ITM Power will trial their new electolyser and automatic manufacturing.

This seems an ambitious project.

A Medical Bulletin On Myself

About two on Saturday morning, I got out of bed to go to the toilet and tripped into the en-suite bathroom causing myself a head injury. I also cut my hand, but what on I do not know! I suspect, that I knocked myself out and when I woke up, my bedroom and living room was like a murder scene with blood everywhere.

The Royal London patched me up, putting a large plaster on my left hand and I stayed Saturday night in the hospital.

My son brought me home on Sunday and I slept that night at home.

On Monday, the cleaners tidied up the mess.

Tuesday, I called 999 again, as I was on the point of falling over and the Royal London found my blood pressure was low, when I stood up. It had been like that, when I had my stroke in Hong Kong and they had to resort to using old-fashioned mercury blood pressure meters.

There was no extra damage and I came home in a taxi.

I’m a bit more normal today, although I seem very sleepy and my INR is just 1.2. 111 told me to start Warfarin yesterday. Which I did!

I shall watch the football on the television and go to bed tonight.

Woo! There Are Now Brand New Overground Trains Running From Liverpool Street

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Londonist.

These are going to make a big difference and I”ll go and have a look for them later.

I got a glimpse of two two-car units working together at Hackney Downs station.

One guy told me that three trains were running.

BRP-Rotax Reveals Hydrogen-Powered Snowmobile

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on H2-View.

This would appear to be s good example of the use of hydrogen-power, as it is both non-polluting and silent.
