Offshore Wind and hydrogen ambition

The H2Mare flagship project coordinated by Siemens Energy that aims to develop an offshore wind turbine with an integrated electrolyser to produce green hydrogen – and build a whole value chain to support it – will receive €100m ($117m) from Germany’s science ministry.

Two of the new machines are slated to be installed by utility RWE at the AquaPrimus sub-project of the giant AquaVentus offshore wind to hydrogen plan that aims at eventually producing green H2 from up to 10GW of offshore wind farms in the North Sea near the German island of Heligoland.

Charley, below is an artist's conception of another German "green" hydrogen project being built by EDF Deutschland, Ørsted and independent oil refinery Raffinerie Heide in Schleswig-Holstein.

If Ørsted and EDF claim it will be making clean, green hydrogen using a 700MW electrolyzer "probably" powered by offshore wind, why is it being built at a refinery? More likely, it will be made from Ørsted's abundant supply of natural gas stored in the numerous LNG tanks you see in the picture. And that smokestack, on the left, will be emitting thousands of tons of CO2, all for the fraudulent purpose of selling brown hydrogen as green. Quite a scam, isn't it?
