px Group to support Cerulean Winds in onshore hydrogen and infrastructure

19 July 2021

Green infrastructure developer Cerulean Winds has signed an agreement with px Group, a leading operator of large-scale UK industrial facilities, as it moves to progress its plans for an integrated 200-turbine floating wind and hydrogen development in the North Sea.

The Cerulean proposal has capacity to generate 3GWh of power, enough to electrify the majority of offshore facilities, reducing CO2 emissions by more than half from 2025. An excess of 1.5 GWh of power would be diverted to onshore green hydrogen plants, at sites in the North of England, North-east Scotland and Shetland.

Under the agreement, px Group would be responsible for lease and ownership arrangements for the sites and for obtaining planning permissions and permitting. This would include obtaining the outline approvals prior to more detailed engagement with local government, regulatory and environmental stakeholders. px Group would also operate the hydrogen generation facilities and the associated onshore infrastructure, including the onshore substations and grid connections.
