The project will initially incorporate a new 100MW electrolyser facility that will produce hydrogen for e-methanol production and deliver renewable-based hydrogen to the transpotation and industrial sectors. Electrolyser production capacity will be increased to 1.85GW in the early 2030s.
The Engie hydrogen production site will be located on the site of the Eems power plant in Eemshaven, with the electrolyser powered by 200MW of offshore wind. The EEW carbon capture plant will be integrated with the existing waste-to-energy plant in Farmsum and will capture biogenic CO2 from the flue gases of the plant's production lines.
OCI's BioMCN methanol facility in Farmsum has the capacity to combine hydrogen and biogenic CO2 to produce e-methanol.
The Engie and OCI/BioMCN plants will be connected to the hydrogen network that Gasunie is developing in the Netherlands and Northern Germany.

Collectively, the projects are comprised of 86 advanced GE wind turbines capable of generating more than three times the amount of power produced by the legacy Aragonne Wind project while using 60 pct less land. Construction financing and tax equity commitments secured for the projects were provided by Wells Fargo and Santander.
Under a previously reported PPA, the projects will provide 200 MW of wind power generation over a 20-year period to Arizona Public Service Company.

According to POET Founder and CEO Jeff Broin, "Iowa has always been a major champion for biofuels, and we applaud Governor Reynolds for taking that forward-thinking leadership to the next level with E15. Passing legislation for an E15 standard could lay the foundation for the entire nation. E15 in Iowa would add nearly 30 million bushels of grain demand each year, grow thousands of jobs across the state and inject millions into Iowa’s economy," Broin continued.
"It would boost farm incomes across the Midwest, grow dependable domestic markets, and be a critical step in securing America's energy independence. Make no mistake -- we need to return to our roots and once again get our energy from the surface of the Earth, and America's farmers will play a pivotal role in the climate solution. Federal and state leaders looking to take action on climate and clean air should start with plant-based biofuels like bioethanol, which is 46 pct cleaner than gasoline from farm to freeway and displaces toxic chemicals in gasoline linked to cancer and other serious health problems," Broin concluded.

The project's foundations, consisting of the turbines' monopiles, transition pieces and anode cages were fabricated by EEW SPC. Installation of the two 6-megawatt Siemens Gamesa turbines 27 miles offshore, is expected to begin later this spring for commissioning and startup by the end of the year. At peak production, the pilot project will power 3,000 homes.
Also this month, Dominion Energy is conducting ocean surveys to map the seabed of the 112,800-acre lease area where the company's 2,600-MW CVOW project will be built beginning in 2024.
