AACE + SUT Joint Presentation 16th Nov 2022 Hydrogen production from offshore wind and floating offshore wind generation
This joint event between Aberdeen Association of Engineers and hosted by Society of Underwater Technology at Holiday in Express, Westhill, Aberdeen on Wed Nov 16th at 17:30, will address two topics – an outline of Vattenfall’s HT1 project aims to be the first in the world to test the full integration of hydrogen production with an offshore wind turbine and the Salamander Offshore Floating Wind power project.
Hydrogen Turbine 1 (HT1)
Vattenfall’s HT1 project aims to be the first in the world to test the full integration of hydrogen production with an offshore wind turbine. HT1 will also map out development and consent processes for large-scale hydrogen projects co-located with offshore wind farms to speed up future development.
The pilot project at Vattenfall’s Offshore Wind Farm in Aberdeen Bay will have an output of 8.8MW and will be able to produce enough hydrogen every day to power a hydrogen bus to travel 24,000km. Hydrogen will be produced offshore, on the wind turbine and be exported to shore at Aberdeen South Harbour via a small diameter flowline.
The availability of large quantities of fossil-free hydrogen will play a key role in the decarbonisation of heavy industry (predominantly in steel, chemicals, and fertilizer production as well as refining), as well as heavy transport.

Salamander Floating Wind – a steppingstone for the Scottish supply chain
The Salamander Offshore Floating Wind project is being developed by Simply Blue Energy (Scotland) Ltd in joint venture with Ørsted and Subsea 7. The project ethos is to be a precursor and stepping-stone to ScotWind developments; allowing the Scottish supply chain to gear-up and de-risk in preparation for these commercial-scale opportunities.
Salamander is planned as a 100 MW development comprising six or seven turbines situated on industrialised steel semi-submersible floating foundations. The project location is approximately 35 km east of Peterhead in the North East of Scotland with water depth of around 100 m.
This session will present the current status of the development and discuss some of the challenges ahead.
Eric Kiltie Deputy Technical Manager, Salamander Floating Wind, Simple Blue Group
The event is sponsored by Vattenfall and SubSea7
