NortH2 is the largest hydrogen project in Europe. It aims to help decarbonise industrial sectors which are difficult or unable to electrify through large-scale production, storage and transport of green hydrogen. Mott MacDonald has been appointed as the NortH2 technical integration and optimisation contractor.
New offshore wind farms would generate the green power and could gradually grow in capacity from 1 GW in 2027, to more than 10 GW in 2040. These wind farms would be directly linked to the hydrogen plant and all power would be used for the production of green hydrogen. With this, Mott MacDonald will develop the technical solutions required to realise the project. We will also provide cost, scheduling and risk management services associated with the technical implementation, to provide a clear path to the consortium for investment decisions and further development for the project.
NortH2 will be critical in achieving the European, Dutch and German climate goals and accelerating the development of an international hydrogen market. The NortH2 consortium aims to produce 1 million tons of green hydrogen per year by 2040. This would avoid about 8 to 10 megatonnes of CO2 per year.
