Protium UK green hydrogen project receives planning consent

Protium Green Solution’s first large-scale green hydrogen project at Samlesbury, UK, has received planning consent.

Chistopher Jackson, CEO and Founder, said it is now the most advanced green hydrogen production project under the government’s Hydrogen Allocation Round 2, with planning and grid secured and FEED completed.

Once fully operational, Samlesbury Net Zero could save up to 11,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

Protium has teamed up with Budweiser Brewing Group to develop the facility, which will see green hydrogen replace natural gas currently used to power the brewery’s boilers and diesel used by its HGVs.

“This also marks a major step towards Protium’s target of 1GW of green hydrogen deployed by 2030,” added Jackson.

Automotive and green energy developer First Hydrogen recently began vehicle trials with gas distribution network, Wales & West Utilities (WWU), in partnership with Protium and Hyppo Hydrogen Solutions.

First Hydrogen’s hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle (FCEV) operate from WWU’s Swansea depot, as part of the business’ fleet of 1,300 vehicles, which are deployed across Wales and South West England.

Last year Protium and partners successfully applied for £30 million from the Department for Transport and Innovate UK to launch the Hydrogen Aggregated UK Logistics (HyHAUL) project, which will roll out 30 hydrogen fuel cell HGVs to haulage operators operating along the M4 corridor by 2026.

Protium has also signed a strategic partnership with Petrofac, enhancing its engineering, procurement and construction offering to clients.

Decarbonisation Summit 2024: Industrial Gases and Clean Energies 3.0

The global industrial gas and equipment business has an imperative role to play in the future of clean fuels and decarbonisation. The energy transition simply won’t happen without it.

At the same time, the industry has its own activities to decarbonise and circular economies to carve out – think green air gases and bio-based carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as CO2 utilisation and e-fuels, and so much more besides.

There are pathways to progress and questions to answer on this journey, not least:

  • What are the compelling clean fuels and what do the pathways to production look like?
  • How can the gases industry participate in this playground of opportunities?
  • What can other alternative fuels mean for the CO2 industry and its stakeholders?

These questions and more will be in the spotlight at gasworld’s Decarbonisation Summit in April 2024. Interested in speaking and contributing? Get in touch with our Content Director, Rob Cockerill, at [email protected]
