Air Products Partners Up On Hydrogen Production In The UK

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

These three paragraphs explain the project.

Air Products has joined with power generator VPI to push forward a hydrogen hub on the south bank of the Humber Estuary in the UK, primarily meant to decarbonise VPI’s power production in Immingham.

The companies said they will develop an 800-megawatt production facility called the Humber Hydrogen Hub (H3) that would include carbon capture and storage and aim to capture up to 2 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide.

Hydrogen produced at the facility will first substitute fuel for VPI’s existing third gas turbine power train.

Note.

  1. VPI is a UK-based power company, providing energy to the National Grid.
  2. Immingham Power station is currently a 730 MW gas-fired power station, which is being expanded to 1240 MW.
  3. It looks like that expansion will use hydrogen.

It is all part of HumberZero.
