Recycled turbine for on-site hydrogen

The UK’s first building to be fuelled by hydrogen supplied by renewables has installed a recycled wind turbine on-site.

Commissioned by regional development agency, Yorkshire Forward, the second hand wind turbine was transported from Newton Aycliffe, County Durham to its new home at the Environmental Energy Technology Centre, EETC Building in Rotherham in Yorkshire.

The turbine is a Vestas V29, rated at 225 kW, and will be used for the on-site production of hydrogen using a high pressure alkaline electrolyser developed by project partners the Pure Energy Centre.

Hydrogen is first due to be produced at the site in January.
