Green hydrogen experts on course to improve air quality in £1 million project

EDINBURGH-based hydrogen tech firm, Logan Energy, has been selected to deliver a unique green hydrogen production and refuelling unit that turns water into transport fuel.

Harnessing electricity produced from solar PV panels, the refuelling unit will use an electrolyser supplied by ErreDue UK, splitting water to produce green hydrogen fuel.

The £1 million ‘Project Vanguard’, led by Cheshire East Council and Storengy UK, demonstrates the potential to turn water sources into clean, low-carbon energy in the greenest way possible.  The project will also be the first of its kind in North West England.

Logan Energy has supported the development and deployment of zero emission technologies throughout the UK and Europe, notably in Northern Ireland where Logan Energy’s technology will be used to refuel hydrogen buses, and in Tenerife where it is producing hydrogen from seawater to power the local transport fleet.

Bill Ireland, Logan Energy chief executive officer, said: “The demand to switch to a low-carbon economy is greater than ever before.

“The Middlewich environmental hub will provide an opportunity to explore how innovative hydrogen technology can be used as an efficient and economic ultra-low emission solution for local authority vehicles.

“Its success could lead to a variety of vehicles being introduced into the fleet in the future.”

Jonathan Cox, ErreDue UK’s director and representative for Erredue SpA said: “Working with Logan Energy to support green hydrogen projects is a vital step in meeting net zero targets.

“Their expertise provides a great opportunity for ErreDue UK to integrate its own innovative technology and together, we’re helping to produce a safe, clean alternative fuel.”
