Construction starts at the world’s largest hydrogen pilot facility


An EU-funded flagship project for a carbon dioxide (CO2)-reduced energy future and the decarbonisation of steel production is taking shape.

Yesterday, at the veostalpine site in Linz, Austria, the H2FUTURE project consortium, consisting of voestalpine, Siemens, VERBUND and Austrian Power Grid, together with research partners K1-MET and ECN, officially gave the go-ahead for construction of the world’s largest pilot facility for the production of ‘green’ hydrogen (H2). With a capacity of six MW, this will be the most effective and advanced plant of its type.

By 2050, the central climate goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by around 80%. This requires both energy suppliers and industry to prepare themselves and explore new pathways together. This is the role of the H2FUTURE research project.
