In The Netherlands, the starting signal was given this week for Rotterdam's biggest green hydrogen project: the H2-Fifty project. It involves the construction of a 250 megawatt electrolyser on the Rotterdam Maasvlakte, which will produce green hydrogen to make BP's refinery and other industries in the port area more sustainable.

This can save up to 350,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually – equivalent to the average emissions of around 40,000 Dutch people. In doing so, H2-Fifty is making a significant contribution to the Dutch and European objectives of making industry more sustainable and developing green hydrogen technology.

In H2-Fifty, oil company BP is working together with electrolyser builder HyCC (Hydrogen Chemistry Company). In the coming year, the parties will select a technology supplier, further develop the design of the plant and start the environmental studies for the licensing procedure. This will allow a final investment decision to be made in 2023.

Because of its important contribution to technology development and CO2 reduction, the project is supported by the Top Sector Energy of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Change and was nominated by the Netherlands for participation in IPCEI Hydrogen, a programme for important projects of common European interest.
