Policy] World's first offshore hydrogen-in-place turbine to be built by 2025

Swedish developer Vattenfall has recently announced that it has received £9.3 million in funding from the UK government to attempt to build the world's first in-situ hydrogen generating offshore wind turbine at its Aberdeen offshore wind farm development.

Located in Aberdeen Bay, Scotland, approximately 3km offshore, the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm has an installed capacity of 93.2MW with 11 Vestas 8MW turbines (two capable of being upgraded to 8.8MW and nine capable of being upgraded to 8.4MW) and is the first wind farm in the world to use a catenary suction tube foundation.

The project was originally planned for commissioning in 2015, but was delayed until 2018 after former US President Donald Trump sued the wind farm for affecting the view from his golf course on the coast.

The demonstration project, called Hydrogen Turbine 1 (HT1), will see one of the turbines selected by Great Falls to install a proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolytic water production plant on a catenary platform, which will produce hydrogen The hydrogen produced will be transported via a subsea pipeline to the Port of Aberdeen, with a target completion date of 2025. It is predicted that the turbine will produce enough hydrogen to power a hydrogen bus for 24,000km per day.

【Policy】 Gansu Jiuquan's 14th Five-Year Plan for Energy Development: Accelerating the Layout of Green Hydrogen and Developing Equipment Manufacturing Industry

Recently, Jiuquan Municipal People's Government issued the "14th Five-Year Plan for Energy Development in Jiuquan", in which hydrogen energy is mentioned as follows

Industrial layout of hydrogen energy - take advantage of the "Belt and Road" channel, focus on the strategic deployment of the construction of the "Jiujia twin-city economic circle", in accordance with the provincial " One corridor, two demonstration zones, two bases" development requirements, based on the resource endowment of each county (city, district) and the existing hydrogen energy-related industries, focus on building "a district, a park, a centre, three bases" hydrogen energy industry layout, to ensure the sustainable development of the hydrogen energy industry.

The key task is to accelerate the development of green hydrogen energy. Focus on relying on the existing industrial parks and industrial bases in Yumen, Guazhou and Jinta counties (cities and districts), lay out and build green hydrogen production and storage bases of 50,000 tons/year in Yumen, 30,000 tons/year in Guazhou and 20,000 tons/year or more in Jinta, extend the chain and complement the chain in the fields of new energy hydrogen production, storage, transportation, refilling, application and hydrogen energy equipment manufacturing, introduce downstream projects such as synthetic ammonia, urea and methanol, and drive the development of the whole industrial chain of hydrogen energy.

【Policy】Russian Energy Agency: China is the most promising market for hydrogen energy in Russia

China is the most promising market for hydrogen energy in Russia, Alexei Kulapin, director general of the Russian Energy Agency (REA) at the Russian Ministry of Energy, told RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum on September 6, RIA Novosti reported.

Russian Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov said in June that Russia had expected to cooperate with European countries in its hydrogen energy development plans, but against the backdrop of recent geopolitical events, it was now time to either create Russian demand for hydrogen energy or shift future exports to the East, to countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

According to the Concept for the development of hydrogen energy in the Russian Federation approved in 2021, the potential size of hydrogen energy exports to the world market could reach 200,000 tons in 2024, 2-12 million tons in 2035 and 15-50 million tons in 2050, depending on the pace of development of the global low-carbon economy and the growth of demand for hydrogen energy on the world market. Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov had said in June that hydrogen energy remained relevant, but that plans for its development would have to be adjusted.
