【Industry】World's first in-situ hydrogen offshore wind turbine, see you in 2025!

Recently, Swedish developer Vattenfall 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 producing 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.
