The Dutch Enterprise Agency (RVO) has awarded a € 3.6 million grant to the PosHYdon project, the world’s first offshore green hydrogen pilot on an operating oil production platform in the Dutch North Sea.

The project aims to validate the integration of three energy systems: offshore wind, offshore gas and offshore hydrogen and will involve the installation of a hydrogen production plant on the Q13a-A platform operated by Neptune Energy. The Q13a-A is also the first fully electrified platform in the Dutch North Sea, located approximately 13 km off Scheveningen.

The green hydrogen will be mixed with gas and transported through the existing pipeline to the coast. The 1 MW electrolyser will produce a maximum of 400 kg of green hydrogen per day.

Partners involved in the PosHYdon consortium include Nel Hydrogen, InVesta, Hatenboer, IV-Offshore & Energy and Emerson Automation Solutions. Nexstep, TNO, Neptune Energy, Gasunie, Noordgastransport, NOGAT, DEME Offshore, TAQA and Eneco joined this group last year. With this grant, the consortium can start all the activities of this pilot. The remaining budget will be financed by the consortium partners.

Neptune Energy is the operator of the Q13a-A platform, with partners EBN and TAQA.
