First Hydrogen has announced its strategy and road map for the advancement of its energy division.
The company is engaged in developing green hydrogen production projects initially in the UK and Canada.
First Hydrogen has reported that it has identified four industrial sites in the UK and is advancing discussions with landowners to secure land rights.
The sites are all in prime industrial areas spread strategically across the north and south and will each accommodate both a large refuelling station – for light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles with on-site hydrogen production, to serve the urban areas of Greater Liverpool, Greater Manchester, the London area, and the Thames Estuary – and a larger hydrogen production site of between 20 and 40 MW, for a total for the four sites of between 80 MW and 160 MW.
The production facilities, once built, will serve customers of First Hydrogen’s automotive division.
The company’s strategy is to secure a domestic supply of fixed-price long-term green hydrogen fuel and distribution arrangements, with such customers. Nicholas Wrigley, chairman of the First Hydrogen Group, said: “It is becoming increasingly clear that customers of hydrogen light commercial vehicles will also need to ensure a reliable supply of green hydrogen for their businesses. We have made significant progress in identifying and securing the first four sites which First Hydrogen will be using for both hydrogen production and distribution, and which we would expect will form part of the Government’s overall hydrogen strategy.”
