NI Water awarded £5m for hydrogen scheme: NI Water has been given £5 million of funding to construct an oxygen & hydrogen demonstrator project at one of its wastewater treatment facilities.
The project is thought to be the first in the UK & Ireland to demonstrate how electrolysis can assist to increase processing capacity, reduce carbon dioxide emissions & better the flexibility in the electricity grid and deployment of a 1MW electrolyser.
Northern Ireland Economy Minister, Diane Dodds, states: “Hydrogen will become an increasingly important part of our future and there is a real opportunity for NI Water to lead the way in the public sector.”
Damien O’Mullan, Head of Energy at NI Water, added: “This project puts Northern Ireland at the forefront of the rapidly developing global hydrogen economy and creates a hugely positive legacy for future generations.”
