" With global energy demand increasing, and an urgent need to
decarbonise the current energy mix, hydrogen has emerged as
an alternative to fossil fuels that has catapulted to the forefront of
the net zero toolbox. Hydrogen energy is extremely versatile, in
that it can be stored in either gas or liquid form and can be
converted into electricity or transportation fuel when needed,
with water as the only by product.
The bulk of hydrogen currently in use is derived from fossil fuel
feedstock using energy intensive and polluting processes (grey
hydrogen). If hydrogen is to truly deliver on its environmental
potential, it needs to be produced from our planet’s vast
renewable energy resources (green hydrogen).
The ERM Dolphyn project aims to produce green hydrogen from
floating wind turbines situated miles out to sea, a world-first.
The design is currently at FEED (front end engineering design)
stage and consists of a large-scale floating wind turbine with an
integrated water treatment unit and proton exchange membrane
(PEM) electrolyser for localised hydrogen production. It
incorporates its own standby power unit, supplied by hydrogen
stored on the facility, and is therefore completely autonomous,
requiring no electrical connection to shore. The first phase is
initially aiming to get a 2MW proof of concept unit up and
running by 2024. The concept is being developed and led by ERM with support from
industry frontrunners including Tractebel Engie and Principle
Power, who are responsible for the floating sub-structure design
and the wind turbine. Principle Power’s WindFloat® platform will be
equipped with a V80 2 MW wind turbine and a platform deck
supporting the hydrogen production factory. The hydrogen will then
be exported to shore under pressure via a pipeline.
The Dolphyn concept allows the wind turbines to operate
completely independent of the grid, removing the need for
complex and costly electrical equipment, and setting the
roadmap for cost competitiveness with grey hydrogen. When
deployed at industrial scale, this innovative technology, coupling
floating wind with hydrogen production, offers the potential to
deliver the immense volumes of hydrogen that will be required
to decarbonize everything, from electricity to transportation to
heavy industry."
