A consortium made up of ITM Power, Ørsted, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, and Element Energy has been awarded €5m (£3.7m) in EU funding to support the development of a combined wind turbine and electrolyser system. The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH2-JU), a public private partnership of the European Commission, has awarded funding for the consortium to investigate the feasibility and potential of combining an offshore wind turbine directly with an electrolyser and transporting renewable hydrogen to shore. The consortium will develop and test a megawatt-scale fully marinised electrolyser in a shoreside pilot trial, with the project coordinated by Element Energy.

The consortium behind the Oyster “green” hydrogen project has secured 5 million euros of EU funding to demonstrate their combined offshore wind turbine and electrolyser system. ITM Power, Orsted, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, and Element Energy are the consortium members. They are developing a system which can transport renewable hydrogen to shore. They want to develop and test a megawatt-scale “fully-marinised” electrolyser in a shoreside pilot trial.
