McDermott has joined AquaVentus, a growing consortium of more than 70 companies, organizations and research institutions collaborating toward green hydrogen energy production in the North Sea. AquaVentus unites international industry leaders with a shared vision for advancing hydrogen's role as a low-carbon, affordable energy solution-combining their unique expertise to make that future a reality.AquaVentus aims to develop 10 gigawatts of generation capacity for green hydrogen from offshore wind turbines in the North Sea by 2035. The expectation is that the wind power generated will be used to produce up to one million tons of production capacity of green hydrogen, which will be used to decarbonize Heligoland and transported to land via pipeline.McDermott's involvement will bring the consortium comprehensive engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) experience in the onshore, offshore, subsea and storage markets, from concept to completion.Aquaventus is a strong consortium that currently includes over 70 leading international companies, organizations and research institutions. Together we want to make a decisive contribution to the implementation of the German and European hydrogen strategy. The aim of AquaVentus is to generate one million tons of green hydrogen with 10 GW of electrolysis capacity from offshore wind energy in the North Sea by 2035. The project family around the AquaVentus initiative includes numerous sub-projects. They range from the production of hydrogen in the North Sea to its transport to customers on the mainland. Coordinated consortia synchronize demand and generation and thus enable a rapid market ramp-up. The AquaVentus project family includes, for example: the development of offshore wind turbines with integrated hydrogen generation (Aqua-Primus), a large-scale offshore hydrogen park (AquaSector), a central supply pipeline (AquaDuctus), port infrastructures (AquaPortus), a research platform ( AquaCampus) as well as maritime hydrogen-based applications (AquaNavis).
