Exploring offshore wind-powered hydrogen: Hy2gen and Ocean Connect Energy's new partnership

Hy2gen USA Inc., the US subsidiary of global green hydrogen producer Hy2gen, and offshore wind energy developer, Ocean Connect Energy Inc. (OCE), have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the mutual investigation of the potential to power renewable hydrogen production from offshore wind.

The MoU formalises a collaboration between the two companies to identify, evaluate, and develop favourable locations to power Hy2gen’s renewable hydrogen and e-fuel production from the gigawatt-scale offshore wind energy generation that OCE develops in the USA and worldwide.

Providing complementary solutions

Hy2gen and wind energy experts OCE have formed a 10-month working group to identify and mature high-capacity offshore wind energy areas where project development may be held back by constrained grid transmission, low electricity demand, or other factors.

"Where green hydrogen production can be built near the point of interconnect from offshore wind energy generation, we have the potential to create predictable and lasting demand for the energy. This makes the need for new grid transmission less urgent and the need for infrastructure investment less substantial, while accelerating wind energy project execution," said David White, president of Hy2gen USA Inc. "Green hydrogen can change the paradigm of where offshore wind is developed," added Kevin Banister, chief executive officer of Ocean Connect Energy.

The research is part of Hy2gen’s strategy embracing the clean hydrogen regulatory framework established by the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act and subsequent guidelines anticipated from U.S. Dept. of Treasury. Hy2gen is committed to producing renewable fuels meeting the highest standards established for the new industry. To address the three pillars of temporality, additionality, and regionality, integrated co-development of offshore wind energy projects and power-to-X projects provide a solution.

Collaboration to move projects forward

Through its global subsidiaries, Hy2gen has set out to become the largest and most reliable renewable hydrogen fuel provider—a powerful accelerator of green transformation. With its global team and decades of experience, OCE is committed to leading projects through all phases of development and into operation.

Towards economic renewable hydrogen production

This MoU marks another step on the way to producing renewable hydrogen economically on a large scale and becoming the market leader with this concept. Exploring opportunities to directly integrate offshore wind energy into renewable hydrogen production will make Hy2gen’s projects more energy independent and give more control to investors.
