Energy infrastructure company Kellas Midstream and power generator RWE are to explore the potential for phased large-scale production of green hydrogen in Teesside, they said April 20. Some will be exported and some will be used in the industrialised region in northeast England as it decarbonises.
The site will be near emerging hydrogen infrastructure and will leverage each of the company’s leading positions in energy infrastructure and renewables. Kellas owns and operates the Central Area Transportation System that delivers North Sea gas and liquids to the port.
CATS will also be home to Kellas’ ground-breaking H2NorthEast blue hydrogen project that will deliver over 1 GW of low-carbon hydrogen and contribute as much as 10% of the UK’s target hydrogen production by 2030.
RWE has gained experience in green hydrogen projects across Europe including the Netherlands. It is targeting 2 GW of green hydrogen development in its core markets by 2030.
