Targeting an annual production of 3,500 to 4,000 tons of hydrogen that meets the highest standards for transportation, Hyoffwind is set out to significantly boost the clean energy economy in Flanders and Europe. The first-ever green hydrogen facility in the region of Flanders is expected to be operational in 2024 and will start out by converting 25 MW of renewable energy. As demands rise, production can be ramped up to as much as 100 MW.
Once produced, the hydrogen will be transported both with pipelines and tankers, to feed the natural gas grid and industrial hydrogen users at home and abroad. Next to that, it will be used to balance the electricity grid. As such, Hyoffwind aims to boost all players in the hydrogen value chain: from production to transportation and delivery. This way, the revolutionary green facility can fuel the hydrogen economy in Flanders.
