Deme, PMV and Port of Oostende announce a 300 MW hydrogen plant in Ostend
Port of Oostende and cluster members DEME and PMV are announcing an exclusive partnership HYPORT.
Their goal is to have a 300 MW hydrogen plant operational in the port area of Ostend by 2025 that will produce 50.000 ton of green hydrogen per year.
The green hydogen will both serve as an energy source for electricity, transport, heat and fuel purposes and as a raw material for industrial purposes.
In the first phase of the process, the general feasibility will be further investigated and a development plan will be worked out.
An innovative demonstration project with mobile shore-based power will then be started. A demonstration project with an innovative electrolyser of around 50 MW is also scheduled.
By 2022, the roll-out of a large-scale shore-based power project, running on green hydrogen, will start. The finish line will be crossed in 2025 with the completion of a commercial green hydrogen plant in the context of the planned new offshore wind concessions.
WaterstofNet embraces this new initiative of her cluster members, that leads to ‘next phase developments’ for hydrogen in Flanders.
