The innovative solution could also be huge for the market with the plant combining a seawater desalination system with a system able to extract hydrogen from water through electrolysis.
This could be groundbreaking for the industry with this solution able to counteract the growing concerns in the community with water scarcity and the amounts needed to produce hydrogen.
In collaboration with Scottish Development International, J-DeEP has been working on a feasibility study of the project to install the plant near offshore wind farms off the coast of Scotland.
The technical verification of the plant and the initial feasibility study on its commercialisation have been adopted as one of the feasibility studies for the overseas deployment of high-quality energy infrastructure outlined by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in 2021.
