In a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the companies Uniper and Ørsted have committed themselves to the goal of jointly developing offshore wind with hydrogen on a large scale. The project will directly integrate hydrogen production from offshore wind power at Uniper's Wilhelmshaven site. The transmission system operator TenneT has agreed to realize the transport of wind power from sea to land.
Siemens Gamesa and Siemens Energy have announced that they are joining forces to develop an innovative solution that fully integrates an electrolyzer into an offshore wind turbine as a single synchronized system to directly produce green hydrogen. The companies intend to provide a full-scale offshore demonstration of the solution by 2025-26.
The government of Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil and Enterprize Energy, an offshore wind project developer have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop offshore wind farms and produce green hydrogen, ammonia together. The partners will work collaboratively with multiple stakeholders to promote the decarbonisation of industrial processes, while also engaging in the planning of the proposed new port facilities in Rio Grande do Norte to support such offshore energy developments.
Salamander 200MW offshore wind farm will accommodate a floating facility to produce hydrogen offshore, according to a new memorandum of understanding signed by its developers. The hydrogen facility's technology will combine electrolysis, desalination and hydrogen production on a floating wind platform. The manufactured hydrogen will be transported to the mainland via a pipeline.
