HyNet is delighted to welcome the the approval of EET’s hydrogen production hub – a significant step in the UK and the region’s journey to reaching net zero.
Cheshire West & Chester Council has approved groundbreaking plans by HyNet partner EET Hydrogen for the first large scale, low carbon hydrogen production plant (HPP1) in the UK located at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.
David Parkin, HyNet Project Director at Progressive Energy said:
“We are delighted that HyNet’s low carbon hydrogen production plant has been given the green flag to begin construction. The plant will provide locally produced hydrogen to industry across the region, enabling them to switch their fuel to a low carbon alternative.
“Owned by EET Hydrogen and located at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex, this will be the UK’s first large scale, low carbon hydrogen production facility, placing the North West region at the forefront of the UK’s journey towards net zero carbon emissions. The plant will support the creation of new jobs, safeguard existing roles and attract investment.”
