Green future mooted for Flotta as hydrogen partnership launched
A potential green future has emerged for Flotta Oil Terminal, this morning, as operator Repsol Sinopec announces a new partnership with a renewables consortium.
Offshore Wind Power Limited (OWPL), comprising Macquarie’s Green Investment Group, TotalEnergies and Scottish developer Renewable Infrastructure Development Group (RIDG), has revealed plans to study the use of offshore wind to power the production of green hydrogen on an industrial scale in Flotta.
OWPL has submitted a proposal to the Crown Estate Scotland’s offshore wind leasing round (ScotWind) to develop a seabed area west of Orkney.
If successful, its proposal, called the West of Orkney Windfarm, could deliver renewable power to a green hydrogen production facility at the Flotta Terminal.
