We are working with our clients to take our strong foundation of energy-handling and storage experience and extend it to provide services to new companies emerging from the great energy transition.
Zenith Energy and EI-H2, Ireland’s green hydrogen leader have joined to develop Green Marlin, a new green energy hub for Ireland, located at our Whiddy Island facility. We have announced plans to develop a 3.2 gigawatt (GW) green energy facility receiving offshore wind from the Celtic Sea to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia.
The new facility, when fully operational, has the potential to reduce Irish carbon emissions by 2.4 million tonnes per year, which represents the equivalent of the carbon emissions of a quarter of all Irish homes. It will operate alongside Zenith Energy’s existing Bantry Bay Terminal, and will be one of the largest of its kind in the world. This development will see Ireland secure a place as a global leader in the generation and export of green energy. Bantry Bay was strategically chosen as the location for a facility of this scale given its proximity to some of the most productive off-shore locations for wind-generated electricity.
The project will involve the engagement of key stakeholders in conducting a detailed feasibility study to explore the project’s full potential.
Zenith Energy and the Port of Amsterdam have been working together to explore the feasibility of the importation of liquid hydrogen with specially designed vessels sourcing hydrogen from the EU, UK and the Middle East for delivery into the Dutch HyNetwork hydrogen transportation system. Together, we have created a BioHub of new energy industries with hydrogen as their feedstock, and Zenith Energy providing storage and support services.
