An offshore hydrogen production plant powered by electricity from a floating wind turbine is scheduled to be put into operation next year in France.
The hydrogen production system will be installed at the SEM-REV demonstration site, off the coast of Le Croisic in France where it will be linked with the Floatgen wind turbine.
According to Centrale Nantes, this will be the world’s first offshore green hydrogen production facility to go into operation.
The project will be set up by French renewable hydrogen project developer Lhyfe, in collaboration with Chantiers de l’Atlantique.
They will install the electrolyser on GEPS Techno’s floating platform at the SEM-REV site and connect it to various marine renewable energy sources, including Floatgen.
