Developing Green Hydrogen
VoltH2 is a group of privately-held companies, registered in the Netherlands, dedicated to the origination and development of green and clean Hydrogen infrastructure projects in Western Europe.
VoltH2 seeks to identify, analyze, secure, and develop a cluster of strategic locations suitable for the installation of green hydrogen production, storage and distribution facilities.
VoltH2’s Team have decades of experience in operating and financing energy-related projects around the globe. Our launching project in the Port of Vlissingen marks the start of an exciting journey in a fast-moving market that is predicted to grow exponentially over the next five to ten years.
VoltH2 signs cooperation agreement with North Sea Port for the development of a green hydrogen plant.
PRESS RELEASE VoltH2 and North Sea Port
August 28, 2020
VoltH2 plans to build an initial 25 MW green hydrogen production plant, using electrolysers powered only by renewable energy sources.
The facility will have dedicated hydrogen storage and access to multimodal transport systems to support the distribution of H2 beyond the immediate locality.
VoltH2 will assess the potential to install an onsite H2 fueling station for the supply of hydrogen directly to lorries, trucks and other vehicles.
The project will be designed to be scalable in phases, up to a target of 100MW by 2030.
Strategic Location In Vlissingen Port
Adjacent to the Sloecentral Powerplant
Potential to supply green hydrogen to the powerplant via a dedicated pipeline, to be consumed either as a blend component to the existing natural gas supply, or in future, as a replacement green fuel to support the powering of the 2 x 435MW CCGT.
Proximity to the Electricity Grid
VoltH2's project location is less than 3000 metres from the ground station of Tennet (the national high voltage grid operator), and this is also where the sea cable from Orsted’s offshore wind parks are connected to the 380KV grid.
Proximity to the Gas Grid
Gasunie, the national grid operator, has their high-call gas grid connector within 500 metres of the VoltH2 project location. VoltH2 will investigate the potential to create a partnership for the future transportation of green hydrogen gas produced at site.
