The Aberdeen Hydrogen Hub is a joint venture between bp and Aberdeen City Council that aims to deliver a scalable, green hydrogen production, storage and distribution facility in the city powered by renewable energy.
The hub plans to be developed in three phases, scaling with growing demands for hydrogen.
The first phase involves building a hydrogen refueling facility for buses and trucks, powered by a solar farm. It aims to produce over 800 kilograms of green hydrogen per day from 2024 – enough to fuel 25 buses and a similar number of other fleet vehicles.
Phase two could see production scaled up to supply over three tonnes per day of green hydrogen for road, rail, freight and marine, by 2030. Phase three could scale up further to supply hydrogen for heat in buildings and potentially export. Expansion would be enabled by the expected increased availability of local renewable power sources, including developments that emerge from the ScotWind offshore wind initiative.
Until early 2023 we will be actively marketing hydrogen for use in road transport fleets (e.g., buses, trucks, vans and cars at 350 and 700 barg) for supply from 2024.
