BPis planning a new large-scale green hydrogen production facility in the north-east of England that could deliver up to 500MW of hydrogen production by 2030.
Together with BP’s already-proposed ‘blue’ hydrogen project (H2Teesside), HyGreen Teesside strengthens Teesside as the UK’s leading hydrogen hub to decarbonize industry and heavy transport. HyGreen Teesside and H2Teesside together have the potential to deliver 30% of the UK’s 2030 target for hydrogen production. HyGreen Teesside project targets 60MWe of ‘green’ hydrogen production by 2025.
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 (megawatt electrical input) of hydrogen production by 2030.
To be developed in multiple stages, HyGreen Teesside is expected to match production to demand and build on experience to drive down costs. 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, which includes 3GW gross of offshore wind in the Irish Sea, delivering 16,000 UK charging points by 2030 and BP and Aberdeen city’s partnership deal.
