Dutch government grants 3,6M Euro DEI+ subsidy to PosHYdon, world's first offshore green hydrogen production.

PosHYdon seeks to validate the integration of three energy systems in the Dutch North Sea: offshore wind, offshore gas and offshore hydrogen and will involve the installation of hydrogen-producing plant on the Neptune Energy-operated Q13a-A platform. The Q13a-A is the first fully electrified platform in the Dutch North Sea, located approximately 13 kilometers off the coast of Scheveningen (The Hague).

Electricity generated by offshore wind turbines will be used to power the hydrogen plant on the Q13a-A platform, converting seawater into demineralized water, then into hydrogen via electrolysis. The aim of the pilot is to gain experience of integrating working energy systems at sea and the production of hydrogen in an offshore environment.

Charley, why is there a deepwater drilling derrick atop PosHYdon's offshore platform?

One might think the company is drilling for natural gas from which to make hydrogen, and erecting a few spindly wind turbines turbines nearby to make the carbon-intensive process look environmentally responsible.

Wouldn't one?
