The partners from the GreenHyScale project enter grant agreement preparation phase for the first of its kind 100 MW electrolyser project.
In connection to the EU Green Deal 2.2 funding call, the consortium partners are currently in preparation of the Grant Agreement with CINEA for the first of its kind 100 MW electrolyser project. The project will demonstrate a minimum 100 MW of green electrolysis based on a novel multi-MW-range alkaline electrolyser platform delivered by Green Hydrogen Systems and installed at GreenLab Skive: a symbiotic, industrial Power-to-X platform. The grant has a budget contribution of 30m Euro.
The objective of the GreenHyScale project is to pave the way for large scale deployment of electrolysis both onshore and offshore, in line with the EU hydrogen strategy and offshore renewable energy strategy. A 6 MW module fitting into a 40-foot container will be demonstrated as the first step in the project, and lead to a minimum 100 MW electrolysis plant, if criteria in a Go/No-go milestone are fulfilled.
“With our consortium partners, the project will be a major opportunity to demonstrate our new electrolysis system called HyProvide X-Series. The X-Series is based on the existing well-proven technology, optimised for use in large-scale applications. This demonstration project will be a cornerstone for us in achieving the necessary scale for technological advancement and will contribute to lowering the levelised cost of hydrogen towards cost parity with fossil fuels,” says Sebastian Koks Andreassen, CEO of Green Hydrogen Systems.
The 100 MW electrolysis plant will generate green hydrogen from directly connected renewables in combination with certified green electricity from a TSO (Transmission System Operator) grid connection. Waste heat will be used on-site and in connection with district heating.
GreenLab Skive distributes green electricity from both wind and solar sources through its unique SymbiosisNet, which optimises and exchanges energy in all forms (heat, gas, water, heat) between the industrial park entities, external suppliers and off-takers.
“Being part of this ambitious project, GreenLab will be able to demonstrate our unique platform ability and to further enhance it towards scaling and replication of other sites. The preparation work is already well underway, and GreenLab is currently gaining experience from the ongoing 12MW electrolyser installation, which will be very valuable for the success of this 100MW project“, says Anders Bøje Larsen, Chief Technology Officer at GreenLab.
Energy Cluster Denmark is the national cluster organisation for the Danish energy sector working to help develop and demonstrate innovative and global energy solutions.
“It is important that leading companies and organisations across Europe join forces if we are to meet the ambitions targets of Co2-reductions and green goals of Europe. The partnership represents key companies from the European energy sector that are ready to upscale green electrolysis technologies helping Europe reach the goals of the Paris agreement.”, says Glenda Napier, CEO, Energy Cluster Denmark.
This communication should not be regarded under any circumstances as a formal commitment by the CINEA (European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency) to provide financial support, as this depends on the satisfactory and timely conclusion of grant agreement preparation and on the internal completion of the formal selection process.
