Associated British Ports and Hynamics are to develop low-carbon hydrogen production and distribution at the Port of Barry.
The partnership will explore opportunities to replace natural gas used in industrial production processes with low-carbon hydrogen. They will also explore ways to use low-carbon hydrogen as an alternative to fossil fuels in other sectors such as port operations and transport.
The partnership between ABP and Hynamics has the potential to have a significant impact on the decarbonization of the Port of Barry and the surrounding region. By developing low-carbon hydrogen production and distribution infrastructure, the partnership could help to reduce local industries’ CO2 emissions, create new jobs, and attract new investment.
The partnership has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deliver a feasibility study that will look at ways to use low-carbon hydrogen to decarbonise industrial processes. The partnership forms the first part of a wider plan to develop a decarbonised growth hub at the Port of Barry, that would seek to decarbonise existing industry, which supports a number of jobs and is a major driver of the local economy.
