Hydrogen technology provider
Dual Ports partner: ITM Power
ITM Power manufactures integrated hydrogen energy solutions to enhance the utilization of renewable energy that would otherwise be wasted. As a DUAL Ports partner, ITM Power uses its skills in hydrogen technologies for their work in the hydrogen pilot at Orkney Islands.
ITM Power has been strengthening its position in the marine fuel bunkering market by offering the go-to green hydrogen production technology for large scale adoption of hydrogen fuel bunkering for the maritime industry. Its proven electrolyser platform architecture is designed to be scalable.
ITM is preparing itself for the second phase of the GIGASTACK project, a renewable hydrogen project that will be realized in the Humber region. The GIGASTACK project, led by ITM Power, Orsted, Phillips 66 Limited Humber Refinery and Element Energy (consulting) will show how renewable hydrogen, derived from offshore wind (Hornsea wind park) can support the net zero greenhouse gas emission target in the UK in 2050. During the first phase of this project, ITM Power has developed designs for a low-cost modular 5-Megawatt electrolyser stack, whereby Orsted has investigated the potential synergies with offshore wind farms. During the second phase, the partners will detail the actual design of a hydrogen production system, connected to an offshore wind farm and an industrial off-taker, utilizing ITM Power electrolyser stack technology.
The continuing innovation in ITM Power’s technology, the scale of products alongside the improvements in manufacturing and production volume, position ITM Power to offer products that provide its clients with the best opportunity to make renewable green hydrogen. This green hydrogen will be able to compete on cost with fossil fuel derived hydrogen, and even natural gas by 2050, as forecast by Platts, Bloomberg New Energy, The Hydrogen Council, and Hydrogen Europe. Therefore, it is essential to meet the large-scale green hydrogen production and cost targets that will be essential for shipping.
