Read MoreHide Full Article

Shell (SHEL - Free Report) recently chose the Japanese electrical engineering and software company — Yokogawa Electric — to work as the main automation contractor (MAC) for the construction of one of Europe’s Largest renewable hydrogen plant, Holland Hydrogen I, in the Dutch port of Rotterdam.

As the MAC, Yokogawa is expected to improve operations at the plant by closely assimilating its systems and equipment.

The plant is expected to commence operations in 2025. Once in action, the Holland Hydrogen I will produce renewable hydrogen by using electricity from an offshore wind farm and will be Europe’s largest renewable hydrogen plant.

Moreover, the unit will have a 200 megawatts (MW) electrolyser with an output of up to 60,000 kilograms of green hydrogen per day. The produced green hydrogen will substitute some of the grey hydrogen used in the refinery, partly decarbonizing the facility’s output of energy products like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
