Neptune Energy today has announced that DEME Offshore will bring its expertise to the PosHYdon pilot, the world’s first offshore green hydrogen project.
Part of the Belgian DEME Group, the company joins as a partner and will provide the hydrogen unit for installation on the Neptune-operated Q13a platform. The pilot aims to integrate three energy systems in the North Sea: offshore wind, offshore gas and offshore hydrogen by producing hydrogen from seawater on the Q13a.
DEME’s expertise in the field of producing green hydrogen was recently underlined with new partnerships signed via subsidiary DEME Concessions in the ports of Ostend in Belgium, and Duqm in Oman.
PosHYdon is an initiative of Nexstep, the Dutch association for decommissioning and reuse, and TNO, the Netherlands organisation for applied scientific research, in close collaboration with the industry.
DEME is the latest partner to join the pilot, following Neptune’s announcement in April 2020 regarding Gasunie, Noordgastransport BV, NOGAT BV, and Eneco.
Partners in the Q13a-A platform are: EBN B.V. (40%) and TAQA Offshore B.V. (10%).
