The pipeline could drastically change both the landscape and scope of the hydrogen economy in the UK and turn the North West region into one of the most influential regions for hydrogen.

The Pipeline is aiming to transport hydrogen form Essar’s Stanlow Manufacturing Complex to industrial users and various power generators across the North West.

In doing so this will decarbonise a wide array of different industries and also support companies transitioning to lower carbon activities.

The consultation offered local people an opportunity to learn more about how the project is being developed and proposals for pipeline route corridors.

Rob Donovan, Cadent Head of Project Delivery for HyNet, said, “We are very grateful to speak with local people and get their views to help shape the future plans I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who was able to get involved at this stage.

“All feedback received will be used along with the technical and environmental work undertaken. This will help with the development of a more detailed design proposal for our future pipeline network.

“We are committed to plans that will minimise disruption to communities, wildlife, and the local environment.

“We’ll present our more detailed proposed plans to local people in the second round of consultation later this year. This is just the start of a conversation and we look forward to continuing to hear more from local communities.”
