Gas infrastructure operator Kellas Midstream held an event devoted to the innovative H2NorthEast project on Teesside on April 26. It aims to decarbonise a major industrial cluster by replacing natural gas with hydrogen in energy-intensive plant.
Kellas Midstream’s managing director Andy Hessell (below, third from left) said it was “great to welcome representatives from so many stakeholder groups and to see a real appetite to understand the importance of low carbon hydrogen for Teesside.”
Alongside Hessell were Chris Beck, the group director for clean growth and innovation at Tees Valley Combined Authority (far left); Thomas Luypaert from Blackrock private equity infrastructure investors, one of Kellas’ owners (second from left); and Kurt Fredheim, the general manager at Norsea’s Seal Sands Terminal (right).
