LONDON (ICIS)–The Hydrogen Chemistry Company (HyCC) has contracted both Kraftanlagen Energies & Services and Nel as the engineering contractor and technology supplier respectively for its H2eron renewable hydrogen project in the Netherlands.

The H2eron plant, which will have a capacity of 40MW and is slated to produce its first hydrogen in 2026, is located in Delfzijl in the northeast of the country near the German border.

Kraftanlagen has been contracted by HyCC for the front-end engineering design (FEED) of the plant, as well as an order having been placed by HyCC to Nel for the supply of the electrolysis stacks.

The stacks will be Nel’s atmospheric alkaline electrolysers and will produce renewable hydrogen from a combination of renewable power and water.
The hydrogen that will be produced at the plant will be used by SkyNRG for the production of sustainable aviation fuel.

A final investment decision (FID) is due on the project in 2024, with the environmental permit having already been received.

The National Climate Agreement in The Netherland plans for 3-4GW of renewable hydrogen production capacity by 2030, with the country also seeking to forge international partnerships to import hydrogen and/or hydrogen carriers (such as ammonia) into its ports for easy distribution to several industrial clusters.
