The Hydrogen Chemistry Company (HyCC) — a joint venture between the financier's Green Investment Group and Dutch chemical player Nobian — plans to start operations in 2027
A 500MW green hydrogen project at the Port of Amsterdam is due to be built by the Hydrogen Chemistry Company (HyCC), a joint venture between the Macquarie-owned Green Investment Group and Dutch chemicals producer Nobian.
H2era is the fifth renewable H2 project at a Dutch port to be announced by the company, which was only formed in December last year.
A first feasbility study has been completed by HyCC and the Port of Amsterdam, and discussions are under way “with various parties to use the hydrogen for the decarbonisation of industries in the region”, the company said in a statement.
It added that the project — which is due to begin operations in 2027 — could also supply H2 as a transport fuel, while the plant could be connected to the planned national hydrogen network.
HyCC is also planning to build the 100MW H2ermes green hydrogen facility in conjunction with the Port of Amsterdam and Tata Steel, at the latter's steel plant in IJmuiden.
Its other Dutch green hydrogen projects are:
Dutch ports are fast emerging as one of the most dynamic centres for green hydrogen in Europe, with multiple large projects planned, including the 10GW Shell-led offshore-wind-powered NortH2, the 200MW Holland Hydrogen 1 project — which has already been given the green light by Shell, and the ambitious multi-faceted Hydrogen Hub Amsterdam.
The Dutch government plans to build a national hydrogen network that would largely be supplied by green H2 produced or imported at the country's ports.
