Start of Europe's largest green hydrogen project in Groningen

A consortium consisting of Gasunie, Groningen Seaports, and Shell Nederland has announced plans to launch the NortH2 project, which aims to produce green hydrogen using renewable electricity generated by a mega offshore wind farm. The project aims to generate 3 to 4 GW of wind energy for hydrogen production by 2030, potentially increasing to 10 GW by 2040. The production of green hydrogen is expected to reach around 800,000 tonnes per year by 2040, avoiding approximately seven megatonnes of CO2 emissions annually. The project will require the construction of wind farms, a large electrolyser, and a smart transport network.
