European energy companies Gascade, Gasunie, RWE and Shell have signed a declaration of their intention to step up cooperation on the AquaDuctus project. This is a pipeline that will be used to transport green hydrogen produced from offshore wind farms off the coast of Great Britain.
The AquaDuctus pipeline will transport green hydrogen from the North Sea directly to the mainland. This is part of the AquaVentus initiative to install 10 GW of capacity in the electrolyser to produce green hydrogen from offshore wind farms. Offshore wind farms are already under construction at Dogger Bank, a North Sea shore stretching from the UK coast to the Jutland peninsula. The pipeline will extend from this shore to the island of Helgoland, off the German coast. The pipeline is expected to transport 1 million tonnes of green hydrogen per year and the project is expected to continue from 2035.
The AquaDuctus pipeline is the first vision for offshore hydropower in Germany. Compared to the transmission of electricity produced abroad, the pipeline is expected to be more profitable. Otherwise, five submarine cables (HVDC) would have to be constructed in place of this installation.
The first step of the AquaDuctus project is to conduct a detailed feasibility study. AquaDuctus also participated in the IPCEI (Important Project of Common European Interest) process of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
PSG will participate in the construction of the first hydrogen pipeline in Poland and abroad
