Shell to start building Europeâ€™s largest renewable hydrogen plant
Shell Nederland B.V. and Shell Overseas Investments B.V., subsidiaries of Shell plc, have taken the final investment decision to build Holland Hydrogen I, which will be Europeâ€™s largest renewable hydrogen plant once operational in 2025.
The 200MW electrolyser will be constructed on the Tweede Maasvlakte in the port of Rotterdam and will produce up to 60,000 kilograms of renewable hydrogen per day.
The renewable power for the electrolyser will come from the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust (noord), which is partly owned by Shell.
The renewable hydrogen produced will supply the Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Rotterdam, by way of the HyTransPort pipeline1, where it will replace some of the grey hydrogen usage in the refinery. This will partially decarbonise the facilityâ€™s production of energy products like petrol and diesel and jet fuel. As heavy-duty trucks are coming to market and refuelling networks grow, renewable hydrogen supply can also be directed toward these to help in decarbonising commercial road transport.
â€śHolland Hydrogen I demonstrates how new energy solutions can work together to meet societyâ€™s need for cleaner energy. It is also another example of Shellâ€™s own efforts and commitment to become a net-zero emissions business by 2050,â€ť said Anna Mascolo, Executive Vice President, Emerging Energy Solutions at Shell. â€śRenewable hydrogen will play a pivotal role in the energy system of the future and this project is an important step in helping hydrogen fulfil that potential.â€ť
Shellâ€™s ambition is to help build a global hydrogen economy by developing opportunities in the production, storage, transport, and delivery of hydrogen to end customers. Holland Hydrogen Iâ€™s approval marks an important milestone on that journey not only for the Netherlands, as a leader in the hydrogen economy, but also for Shell globally.
