ScottishPower and Hutchison Ports are exploring the opportunity to develop, build and operate a multi-hundred MW green hydrogen production facility at the Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk, England.
“Plans are being developed to use green hydrogen for onshore purposes, such as road, rail and industrial use, with the potential to create liquid forms, such as green ammonia or e-methanol,” said ScottishPower.
“This could, in turn, provide clean fuels for shipping and aviation, and create opportunities for cost-effective export to international markets.
“The project aims to continue engineering and site development works to align with customer demand from 2025 onwards.”
ScottishPower Hydrogen Director Barry Carruthers said: “This strategically important project could potentially create a clean fuels hub that could unlock nationally significant decarbonisation for the region, as well as playing a role in international markets.
“It’s perfectly located not far from our existing and future offshore windfarms in the East Anglia region, and demonstrates how renewable electricity and green hydrogen can now start to help to decarbonise road, rail, shipping and industry.”
