ITM Power PLC said Monday its partnership with ScottishPower and BOC has made a planning application to site a 20-megawatt hydrogen electrolyzer at the Whitelee wind farm, near Glasgow.
This would be the U.K.'s largest electrolyzer facility, and the proposed capacity doubles the previously planned scale in response to market demand, ITM said.
The project aims to supply hydrogen to the commercial market before 2023. It will be engineered and operated by BOC, using wind and solar electricity produced by ScottishPower, and incorporates an electrolyzer to be delivered by ITM, it said.
A decision on the planning application for the electrolyzer is expected by the end of autumn 2021, ITM said.
