Thyssenkrupp’s Uhde Chlorine Engineers will provide the 200 MW of electrolyzers to Shell’s green hydrogen production project at the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, which will be powered by the future Hollandse Kust North offshore wind farm. The project will use Thyssenkrupp’s 20 MW AEM electrolyzer modules, with construction to start in the coming months. Shell is expected to take a final investment decision to build the ‘Holland Hydrogen I’ project later this year, with commissioning expected in 2024.
