A Brief Summary

Thyssenkrupp AG, a German industrial group, announced the construction of a 200MW green hydrogen plant for Royal Dutch Shell in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. At present, Shell is working to develop a large-scale hydrogen hub in the Rotterdam port. The plant will give priority to net-zero, focusing on reusable construction materials as much as possible and including solar panels on the outside walls of the plant.

The contract between Shell and Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers is for procurement and fabrication of the electrolysis plant called Hydrogen Holland I.

Through guarantees of origin, electricity for hydrogen production will be given by the Hollandse Kust (Noord) offshore wind farm. Shell and Eneco are developing a 759-MW wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.

The project will create green hydrogen for industry and transportation using ThyssenKrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers' 20-MW alkaline water electrolysis modules. The hydrogen will be transferred to Shell's Energy and Chemicals Park Rotterdam through a 40-kilometre (25-mile) pipeline, according to Thyssenkrupp.

ThyssenKrupp is about to start construction work for the electrolysers in the spring while Shell has not decided to invest in the project.

Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers is a joint venture between Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions and Italy's Industrie De Nora, in which Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions holds a controlling stake.
