Iv-Offshore & Energy to generate hydrogen from offshore wind with new platform

Iv-Offshore & Energy has created a platform for generating hydrogen from offshore wind energy. The company claims that 500 MW of offshore wind power is used to generate 85 kilotonnes of hydrogen annually.

At peak times, large amounts of electricity generated by offshore wind farms cannot simply be fed into the high-voltage grid on land. However, turning it into hydrogen offers a chance to make it possible to use this renewable energy on land. Iv-Offshore & Energy noted that hydrogen gas is easier and less expensive to transport and store than electricity.

Iv-Offshore & Energy developed a platform with which 500 MW of offshore wind energy is used to produce 85 kilotonnes of hydrogen per year. The dimensions of such an offshore hydrogen production plant are comparable to the 1.3 GW High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) platform Iv-Offshore & Energy designed for one of the largest wind farms in Europe: Sofia Offshore Wind Farm. The platform can be installed in water depths of up to 45 meters and weighs 21,000 tonnes (including the topside, jacket, and jacket piles).

The entire design for this offshore hydrogen platform was provided by Iv-Offshore & Energy, including the process design, integration of the electrolyser systems, balance of plant, jacket design (platform undercarriage), and auxiliary systems.
