px Group to support Cerulean Winds on Onshore Green Hydrogen Plants and Associated Infrastructure

px Group has signed an agreement with green infrastructure developer Cerulean Winds to support the development of onshore green hydrogen plants and the associated infrastructure.

Cerulean is progressing with plans for an integrated 200-turbine floating wind and hydrogen development in the North Sea – the three onshore hydrogen sites would be based in the North of England, North East Scotland and Shetland.

px Group would operate the hydrogen generation facilities and the associated onshore infrastructure, including the onshore substations and grid connections. px Group’s remit would also include being responsible for lease and ownership arrangements for the sites and for obtaining planning permissions and permitting. This would include obtaining the outline approvals prior to more detailed engagement with local government, regulatory and environmental stakeholders.

Cerulean’s proposal has the capacity to generate 3GWh of power, reducing CO2 emissions by more than half from 2025. 1.5GWh of power would be diverted to power onshore green hydrogen plants.

Geoff Holmes, px Group CEO said: “We are delighted to be working with Cerulean on this potentially ground-breaking project.  As an owner and an operator, px Group has over 25 years hands-on experience in developing cleaner energy projects and reducing emissions.  Operating and managing infrastructure which supports the UK’s energy transition is core to our business and we are thrilled to be able to support the decarbonisation of offshore facilities in the North Sea.”

px Group’s expertise and asset base make it a valuable addition to Cerulean’s UKCS decarbonisation proposition,” said Dan Jackson, Cerulean Winds founding director.
