THYSSENKRUPP has signed a contract with Shell to supply a 200 MW green hydrogen facility in the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
As part of the contract, Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers will engineer, procure and fabricate a 200 MW electrolysis plant. The large-scale project – known as Hydrogen Holland I – will be based on Thyssenkrupp’s 20 MW alkaline water electrolysis module.
The electricity will come from an offshore wind farm, and the hydrogen will be transported through a pipeline to Shell’s Energy and Chemicals Park Rotterdam. The facility will incorporate solar panels and will use reusable construction materials where possible.
Christoph Noeres, Head of Green Hydrogen at Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, said: “We are looking forward to support building a major hydrogen hub in central Europe and to contribute to Europe’s transition to green energy. With our large-scale standard module size, we will further strengthen Shell’s hydrogen strategy. Our partnership perfectly combines our engineering excellence with Shell’s competence of a large global energy player.”
Shell is expected to make a final investment decision this year, with production expected in 2024.
