Scottish hydrogen hub gets green light


GreenPower has gained planning approval for a green hydrogen production and distribution centre on the west coast of Scotland. 

The project will be located at the Glenshellach Industrial Estate in Oban, Argyll and Bute and could potentially be online by the end of 2025. 

GreenPower, developer and operator of the 46MW Carraig Gheal wind farm near Oban, aims to supply hydrogen produced by electrolysis of water and powered by renewable energy. 

The Argyll Hydrogen Hub has the potential to enable the transition away from fossil-fuels to zero-carbon fuels for ferries, HGVs, buses, trains, industrial processes and heating in the region. 

GreenPower is also considering the potential for hydrogen production at its other energy generation sites, including at the proposed Barachander wind farm, the sister project to Carraig Gheal.
