Plans for a green hydrogen production hub in Carrington, near Manchester, have taken a step forward with the submission of a planning application. The developers are hoping to bring it online in 2023.
The plans have been drawn up by Trafford Green Hydrogen subsidiary Carlton Power and were submitted to Trafford Council earlier this month.
They outline how a green hydrogen production facility could be created on land owned by the business at its existing power station site. The facility would include an electrolyser powered by renewable electricity, gas compressors, hydrogen storage facilities and tanker loading facilities.
Carlton Power has submitted a full planning application for a production facility with a 10MW capacity, which would produce around four tonnes of hydrogen daily. This facility could enter commercial operation in 2023 if planning permission is granted within the expected timeframe and construction begins in early 2022.
