Hydrogen company HyCC has launched Project H2era to construct a 500 MW green hydrogen plant in the Amsterdam port area. The project, launched in cooperation with the Port of Amsterdam, is a major step forward in the development of the regional hydrogen economy to help decarbonize industry and mobility.HyCC intends to start operations of the new plant in the Amsterdam port area in 2027. HyCC and the Port of Amsterdam have completed a first feasibility study and the project will be further developed in the coming months during the study phase pre-FEED.H2era will produce green hydrogen and oxygen from renewable electricity and water in a process called electrolysis. Discussions are currently underway with various parties to use the hydrogen for the decarbonization of industries in the region. In addition, the hydrogen can be used for green mobility. In the future, the new plant can also be connected to a national pipeline network to enable exchange of hydrogen between industrial clusters.HyCC is also working with Port of Amsterdam and Tata Steel on a 100 MW plant at the site of Tata Steel IJmuiden, called project H2ermes.
