Climate change: Green hydrogen plan for Flotta oil terminal


Plans to turn the Flotta Oil Terminal in Orkney into one of the world's first large-scale green hydrogen plants have been unveiled.

We can't know if playing slotxo online at that time is going to be or will be lost, since there are equal opportunities, which is enough to help you choose the game.

French oil giant TotalEnergies is part of a consortium proposing to use offshore wind power to produce hydrogen on an industrial scale at the facility.

Terminal operator Repsol Sinopec said it wanted to transition away from oil and gas towards green energy.

It is expected the earliest it could be up and running would be 2028.

Offshore Wind Power Limited (OWPL) has submitted the proposal to Crown Estate Scotland (CES).

It is part of the ScotWind leasing auction, which is offering the rights to develop offshore wind projects.

Green hydrogen involves renewable electricity being used to split water into two parts, creating hydrogen. In contrast, "blue" hydrogen is made using gas, which is a fossil fuel. Part of the production process involves capturing the carbon.

OWPL has already submitted a bid to develop a two-gigawatt offshore wind farm to the west of Orkney, which it is said could power up to two million homes.

It could also produce energy which could then be made into hydrogen in Flotta and exported both nationally and internationally.
