UK-based Meld Energy has received the backing of Fortune 500 company World Fuel Services and UK prime minister, Rishi Sunak, for the development of its 100 MW green hydrogen facility in Hull, UK. The facility will be built at px group’s Saltend Chemicals Park.

FEED (Front End Engineering Design) is expected to begin in November 2023 and would run alongside the planning application processes. Construction would commence less than a year later with a target operation in early 2027.

When completed, it will be one of Britain’s largest hydrogen plants.

The announcement comes as US firms have committed more than £14 billion (€16.3 billion) of new investment across the UK.

Chris Smith, CEO and founder of Meld Energy, says: ‘Saltend Chemicals Park is the perfect site for our green hydrogen facility. Saltend has a rich knowledge of decarbonisation projects and, importantly, has future users of the hydrogen to be produced already in place. This project can be online within four years and would deliver an immediate reduction in emissions once production commences. The facility will have the potential to double its production as demand for hydrogen increases in the future to meet Net Zero targets.’
