Scotland’s Whitelee green hydrogen project wins funding

Government will provide £9.4mn for initial phase that will see 10MW electrolyser built near Scottish windfarm

The UK government has awarded £9.4mn ($12.6mn) to a consortium consisting of utility Scottish Power, electrolyser manufacturer ITM Power and industrial gases firm BOC to develop a green hydrogen project in Scotland. ITM will manufacture the 10MW electrolyser in Sheffield, while BOC will handle the project’s engineering and operations. The electrolyser will be connected to Scottish Power’s 539MW Whitelee windfarm near Glasgow and will produce 900-1,400t/yr of green hydrogen that will initially be used to supply local transport applications. The facility aims to supply hydrogen to the commercial market by the end of 2023, and will eventually scale up to a 20MW electrolyser. It will have 4t
