Equinor and SSE to develop world-first hydrogen power station

Humber development of 100pc hydrogen power plant and CCS-equipped gas-fired power plant would share CO2 storage infrastructure

Norwegian state-owned energy company Equinor and UK utility SSE Thermal are to jointly develop both a 100pc hydrogen power plant and a gas-fired power plant equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the UK’s Humber region. The Keadby Hydrogen power station—which has a peak hydrogen demand of 1,800MW—would be fed by blue hydrogen that is created from natural gas at the site, but could accept any form of hydrogen in the future. The 900MW Keadby 3 power station would be a more conventional combined-cycle gas turbine design but equipped with CCS technology. “The Humber has to be at the centre of the UK’s decarbonisation strategy” Wheeler, SSE Thermal The two plants would s
