The Humber introduce first’ 100% hydrogen-fuelled power station
SSE and Equinor to develop this plant which is predicted to generate around 900MW of electricity with zero emissions
SSE plc’s flexible generation and energy storage arm, SSE Thermal and Equinor has partnered to deploy what is claimed to be the world’s first 100% hydrogen-fuelled generated in the Humber.
The ‘Keadby Hydrogen’ power station would have a peak demand of 1,800MW of hydrogen. The plant, which is predicted to generate around 900MW of electricity with zero emissions, is expected to come online before the end of the decade.
The two energy giants will also develop the already announced Keadby Three power station fuelled by natural gas and fitted with carbon capture technology to remove the carbon dioxide from its emissions.
The captured carbon dioxide would then be transported and stored under the Southern North Sea.
