UK to supply additional funding to the largest wind farm in the world for green hydrogen production

February 18, 2020 |

In the United Kingdom, what will soon be the world’s largest offshore wind farm has received an additional $9.7m from the UK government. The Gigastack project, led by ITM power and supported by Orsted, aims to deliver zero-carbon hydrogen via ‘stackable’ 5MW electrolyzers produced in a gigawatt-scale factory for large scale generation. The new wind farm retrofitted with ITMs electrolyzers is expected to be online in 2022. The Vice President for hydrogen at Orsted stated that “With industry and government working together, there has been a rapid deployment and a huge cost reduction. This project aims to do the same with hydrogen. At the right cost, this technology has the potential to play a huge role in meeting the UK’s decarbonization targets. We’re excited to be part of this project in the Humber region where we are already very active, including constructing the biggest offshore wind farms in the world, Hornsea One and Two, and with them setting the global standard for deployment of offshore wind at scale.”
