Consultation for the UK’s first 100 per cent hydrogen pipeline at scale will launch on October 1. This consultation will focus on the construction, operation and maintenance of up to 125km of new pipelines that would distribute hydrogen from Vertex Hydrogen based at Essar’s Stanlow Manufacturing Complex to several industrial gas customers across the North West.
Rob Donovan, Project Director, Cadent’s HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline said:
“We look forward to hosting events to meet and talk with the public and gather more views from local people to help us develop the best possible pipeline route.
“This is a really important project – both for the local area and nationally. The North West Hydrogen Pipeline and wider HyNet North West programme have a key role to play in helping the UK achieve net zero by 2050, as well as to home-grow energy security.”
