Hamburg Green Hydrogen Hub project has been included in the German Federal Ministry of Economics’ shortlist of projects under consideration for funding under the EU’s “Important Projects of Common European Interest” (IPCEI) program. The partners of the Hamburg Green Hydrogen Hub include Shell, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), Vattenfall and the municipal company Warme Hamburg.
The shortlist includes 62 projects from over 200 individual projects that applied for funding under the IPCEI program. The HH-WIN project, by the Hamburg gas network, which will provide the pipeline infrastructure for hydrogen transport in Hamburg, is also on the short list.
The companies Shell, MHI, Vattenfall and municipal company Warme Hamburg are planning how they can jointly produce hydrogen from wind and solar power at the Hamburg-Moorburg power plant site and utilize it in its vicinity. In addition to the construction of a scalable electrolyser with an initial output of 100 MW, the further development of the site into a so-called “Green Energy Hub” is planned.
