British Steel has welcomed plans for a green hydrogen production centre near its Teesside operations in UK. British Steel’s Teesside Operations Manager Mr Matt Stockwell said “We welcome the news about the hydrogen plant project on Teesside and look forward to early collaboration with EDF Renewables. This development will allow us to explore innovative technology options that could support the implementation of our Low-Carbon Roadmap and our ambition to deliver net zero steel by 2050.”Tees Green Hydrogen is a pioneering project from EDF Renewables UK and Hynamics, a subsidiary of EDF Group specialising in hydrogen. The project will use green electricity from the nearby Teesside Offshore Wind Farm along with a new solar farm, which EDF Renewables UK intends to construct near Redcar, to power its hydrogen electrolyser. Tees Green Hydrogen will supply local business customers with hydrogen to support decarbonisation efforts and a significant reduction in industrial pollution. In its initial phase, the electrolyser will be 30-50MW in size, but is designed to be able to scale to over 500MW, in line with emerging demand.
