Set to be online by the end of 2022, with gas certification expected in December (2022), the onsite generation is anticipated to produce enough green hydrogen to support around 10, 44-tonne heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) per day.

Commenting on the environmental permit, William Rowe, CEO of Octopus Hydrogen, said, “This is a great achievement for the team and another important milestone in our plans. It’ll be the first of many as we create a distributed green hydrogen generation and supply network to accelerate Net Zero.”

2022 has seen further developments from Octopus Hydrogen. In July, the firm announced a landmark deal that would see hydrogen supplied to GeoPura for the next decade to drive the replacement of diesel generators.
