Ørsted and bp to develop renewable hydrogen project in Germany

Ørsted and bp have agreed to jointly develop a potential large-scale renewable hydrogen project at bp’s Lingen Refinery in North West Germany (Emsland).

The project, which is expected to be operational in 2024, will comprise a 50 Megawatt (MW) electrolyser system capable of generating one ton of renewable hydrogen per hour or almost 9,000 tonnes a year. This would be sufficient to replace approximately 20 percent of the refinery’s current fossil-based hydrogen consumption, avoiding around 80,000 tonnes CO2 equivalent emissions a year – equivalent to emissions from around 45,000 cars in Germany.  The project is also intended to support a longer-term ambition to build more than 500MW of renewable hydrogen capacity at Lingen. This could provide renewable... ... More: Official Press Release Ørsted
