Working with a project with SGN, it is expected that it will help determine how existing natural gas networks can be repurposed for hydrogen.

Taking place in Grangemouth, the trial which is funded by the Energy Regulator and gas companies will use hydrogen supplied by INEOS in a 29km section of decommissioned pipeline to Granton.

Gus Mcintosh, Director of Energy Futures at SGN, said, “Our Local Transmission System is part of the national critical infrastructure that reaches millions of homes and businesses across the UK.

“So, repurposing it for hydrogen could support a hydrogen system transformation that is least cost and least disruptive to customers.”

Andrew Gardner, Chairman of INEOS Grangemouth, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with SGN in a trial that will help determine how the UK’s transmission networks can be repurposed for hydrogen gas.

“We believe that Grangemouth is the ideal location in Scotland to create a hub for hydrogen production, use and export.”
