A consortium led by Gemserv has secured around £6.7 million (€7.9 million) from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to deliver the Tyseley Ammonia to Green Hydrogen Project.
This has been done through the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 Competition.
The project aims to design, build, commission, and operate the world’s largest and most efficient ammonia to hydrogen conversion unit of its kind.
The demonstration unit is based on innovative technology developed by H2SITE and is located at Tyseley Energy Park, a strategic energy and resource hub in the West Midlands.
It forms part of the UK Government’s commitment to enable 10 GW of hydrogen production capacity by 2030, with projections indicating that hydrogen will form up to 35% of UK final energy consumption by 2050.
Energy Minister, Greg Hands said: “The UK is truly leading the world in hydrogen innovation thanks to the exciting efforts of companies such as those delivering the Tyseley Ammonia to Green Hydrogen project.
“The government support which they have received today will help to boost the development of hydrogen as the clean, affordable, homegrown superfuel of the future.”
Alex Goody, Chief Executive Officer at Gemserv, said: “Gemserv is thrilled to be leading the Tyseley Ammonia to Green Hydrogen consortium to deliver this ground-breaking innovative project. As a company, we strive to be at the heart of the energy transition, supporting our partners to deliver the technologies and solutions required for Net Zero. Hydrogen is a key solution for decarbonising the energy sector and we are excited to be a part of this project which will help to deliver low cost, low carbon hydrogen for the future energy system.”
David Horsfall, director at Tyseley Energy Park, said: “We are delighted that our low and zero carbon refuelling station will be the base of a first-of-a-kind green ammonia to hydrogen facility. At Tyseley Energy Park we are committed to working with partners, to find solutions that will underpin the transition to low or zero carbon future and this project will put Birmingham and the West Midlands at the forefront of the next green industrial revolution.”
