bp plans major green hydrogen project in north east UK

news item image
bp confirmed it is planning a new large-scale green hydrogen production facility in the north east of England that could deliver up to 500Mwe of hydrogen production ‎by 2030.
HyGreen Teesside is expected to be developed in multiple stages.
bp is aiming to start production by 2025, with an initial ‎phase of some 60MWe of installed hydrogen production capacity.
A final investment decision on the ‎project is expected in 2023.‎
Hygreen Teesside is the latest addition to bp’s integrated UK business portfolio.
bp is working with industry, local administration such as Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) ‎and the UK government to increase the pace of decarbonisation in transport.
bp’s blue and green hydrogen projects in Teesside, together with the proposed Net Zero Teesside ‎power project, is expected to further support economic development and regeneration in Teesside.‎
Louise Jacobsen Plutt, bp’s senior vice president for hydrogen and CCUS, said: “Low carbon ‎hydrogen will be essential in decarbonising hard-to-abate industrial sectors including heavy transport.
“‎Together, HyGreen and H2Teesside can help transform Teesside into the UK’s green heart, ‎strengthening its people, communities and businesses. This is exactly the type of energy we want to ‎create and more importantly deliver.”
HyGreen Teesside is expected to fuel the development of Teesside into the UK’s first major hydrogen ‎transport hub, leading the way for large-scale decarbonisation of heavy transport, airports, ports and ‎rail in the UK.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: ‎“This exciting project builds on our ongoing development of ‎hydrogen in the area through the Tees Valley Hydrogen Transport Hub. It’ll help pave the way for its ‎use across all transport modes, creating high-quality, green jobs in the process.”
The combined 1.5GW capacity of HyGreen Teesside and H2Teesside could deliver 30% of the UK ‎government’s target of developing 5GW of hydrogen production by 2030.
Industries in Teesside ‎account for over 5% of the UK’s industrial emissions and the region is home to five of the country’s ‎top 25 emitters.
