Tractebel has revealed it is working on an offshore platform that could generate hydrogen from offshore wind power.
On 1 October, it announced that energy experts from Tractebel Overdick and Tractebel Engineering were developing a platform that will be capable of producing green hydrogen from offshore wind energy at an industrial scale. It will do this through electrolysis and be able to deliver up to 400MW of power, either through a pipeline or ship as opposed to cables.
Tractebel also noted it was in a position to undertake all engineering services for each stage of planning – from the feasibility study through to the detailed design. Furthermore, as it operates under ENGIE, Tractebel added that it was in a “perfect position” to deliver and operate offshore hydrogen platforms as an EPC supplier and offer solutions for large-scale storage.
