Revealed today (April 26), this project could be a crucial development for the UK’s hydrogen economy and help bolster the potential of the market within the region.
Dubbed Bacton Energy Hub (BEH), the project will aim to deliver a sustainable hydrogen supply by adding facilities that support low-carbon hydrogen production, carbon capture, and underground storage (CCUS) by 2030.
Tareq Kawash, Senior Vice-President, Onshore, said, “We are proud to play a leading role in developing the UK’s energy future in line with the net zero objectives set by the UK Government.
“McDermott’s Center of Excellence in London has the design capabilities and expertise in major project execution, including both greenfield and brownfield, to deliver a viable project scope that will support Maximising Energy Recovery (MER) and net zero emissions for the UK.”
Alistair MacFarlane, Manager of Southern North Sea & East Irish Sea Area at NSTA, said, “It’s great to see an organization like McDermott contributing to the Bacton Energy Hub initiative, which aims to facilitate the transition to net zero and reinforce the East of England’s position as a key region for low carbon power for the UK.
“The Infrastructure SIG will play a vital role in maturing the opportunity at Bacton and hopefully enabling the industry to take investment decisions by 2024.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
