Scottish Power, partners to build pilot plant to test electrolyzer technology

Scottish Power Ltd. is joining forces with engineering firm Proton Ventures BV and electrolyzer developer Supercritical Solutions Ltd. on a pilot plant to test a high-pressure, renewable energy-powered electrolyzer in the U.K.

The GreeNH3 project will test whether the new electrolyzer technology can be applied on a large scale to reduce the costs of green hydrogen production. The electrolyzer will be powered by renewable energy supplied by Scottish Power.

The project will deliver power to an ammonia facility and help transform the ammonia production process, Scottish Power, a subsidiary of Iberdrola SA, said May 20.

The plant will be located at one of ScottishPower's green hydrogen sites in the country. Scottish Power and its partners secured £146,000 in funding for the first phase of the project from the U.K. government through its Net Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 program.
