Geoscience data and software company, Getech has announced the completion of the first step in developing the Inverness green hydrogen hub in the Scottish Highlands, UK. Working alongside SGN Commercial Services, phase one has seen the successful deconstruction of Inverness’ former gas holder, paving the way to convert a legacy natural gas holder site into a future green hydrogen storage and distribution facility.

The site forms an important element of Getech’s broader hydrogen network development for the Scottish Highlands. Situated alongside Inverness’ rail head, it is ideally positioned to supply clean fuel to the hydrogen trains that will operate in this region.

Jonathan Copus, CEO of Getech says: ‘The completion of demolition of the SGN gas holder site demonstrates tangible progress in our hydrogen operations in Inverness and forms part of a range of broader strategic initiatives being undertaken by Getech to achieve the production, storage and supply of green hydrogen – supporting our ambition to establish at least 500MW of new geoenergy and green hydrogen assets by 2030. Hydrogen has a critical role to play in the clean energy transition and we continue work closely with stakeholders, including The Highland Council, to establish a network of green hydrogen hubs across the Scottish Highlands.’

‘This is an important milestone in transforming the site of our old gas holder to create a hydrogen supply and distribution hub, which will play a key role in decarbonising transport across the Highlands and wider Scottish economy. It will not only help reduce carbon emissions but will deliver jobs and skills opportunities in the local area. We look forward to working with the Scottish Government to help build the regulatory and policy frameworks that will support the build out of the hydrogen economy at pace across Scotland,’ adds Marcus Hunt, Director, SGN Commercial Services.
