Protium, the UK’s leading green hydrogen energy company, has secured a location on Wilton Universal Group’s site in Teesside, marking the area’s largest announced green hydrogen project to date.
The project – which cements Teesside’s position as the leading green hydrogen zone in the UK – aims to generate green jobs and economic opportunities for the local community and region.
Current plans are for the site to include up to 40MW of electrolysis capability, developed in two phases, including hydrogen storage. The building of a hydrogen production facility will provide Protium with the infrastructure necessary to generate renewable green hydrogen energy, with plans to supply local manufacturers once built.
The project will include the development of green hydrogen storage to support the largest PEM electrolyser in Teesside, thus enabling local manufacturing and logistics businesses to transition from natural gas and diesel energy sources.
The project will be completed by 2026, subject to planning and engineering works – creating jobs during the construction and sustained employment during its operation.
