After the Danish Business Authority awarded DKK 600m to the 300MW PtX flagship project, Green Fuels for Denmark, Hydrogen Industry Leaders assesses the impact this could have on the hydrogen economy.
Receiving funding through participation in the Important Projects of Common European Interest (IPCEI) programme, Denmark is set to use the budget for the development of the project in different phases. Those are made up of 10MW, 100MW, and 300MW capacity.
Formed as a consortium, Ørsted is joined alongside side partners such as A.P. Moller – Maersk, Copenhagen Airports, DFDS, DSV and SAS.
Topsoe, Nel and Everfuel are technology partners on the project, whilst COWI acts as a knowledge partner, ensuring best practices are followed from the outset.
The first two phases consist of producing renewable hydrogen to power heavy industrial vehicles and starting the production of green synthetic jet fuel, e-kerosene.
Expanding into different later phases, there is potential to produce more e-kerosene fuel than is needed for Danish domestic aviation, placing them to be in a position to export excess fuel. The quantity produced could reach 30% of the pre-pandemic jet fuel consumption at Copenhagen Airport.
