Green Hydrogen Production and Storage Facility

The University of Sheffield (UoS) with funding from European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is establishing a Sustainable Aviation Fuels Innovation Centre (SAF-IC) to support and promote the production and characterisation of decarbonised and sustainable aviation fuel. To broaden and support our extensive research, development, and deployment activities at the centre, we are looking to procure a proton exchange membrane (PEM) or a solid oxide hydrogen electrolyser. The Green Hydrogen Production and Storage Facility project will enable green hydrogen to be produced on site, whilst the device will be mains powered the centre boasts considerable renewable electricity production capacity. Hence, it is intended that the consumption of the H2 production facility will net off, against said production capacity, thereby resulting in credible green hydrogen production. One of the main purposes behind this procurement is the use of the generated hydrogen to produce renewable synthetic fuels. For indicative purposes only, the budget allocated to the Green Hydrogen Production Facility is c.1.2m while the budget allocated for the Storage Facility is c.150,000 (both figures are excluding VAT). This explains the estimated total value figure shown above of 1,350,000
