Landmark project could produce one million tonnes of green hydrogen a year by 2035

AquaVentus’ lighthouse project will install wind turbines in the North Sea between Heligoland and the Dogger Bank sandbank by 2035.

The wind power from this will be used to produce up to one million tonnes of green hydrogen a year, which will then be transported to land via a pipeline.

TÜV SÜD, an international provider of testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services, draws on years of experience in offshore wind energy as well as comprehensive expertise in the field of hydrogen.

Adding the group to the AquaVentus project provides a huge boost to its capabilities moving forward.

Reiner Block, CEO Division Industry Service at TÜV SÜD, said, “AquaVentus is an immensely exciting initiative, and we are eager to be actively involved in its realisation.

“TÜV SÜD has a clear focus on sustainability and offers a host of services for all stages of the transformation and decarbonisation process.”
