Zeevonk II to install electrolyser at Port of Rotterdam for green hydrogen

Zeevonk II, the winner of the IJmuiden Ver wind park tender for plot Beta, plans to build an electrolyser on the Maasvlakte to convert wind farm energy into green hydrogen.

For the construction of the second conversion park on the Maasvlakte, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has reserved space for the tender winner. This plot can accommodate an electrolyser of up to 1 GW. Zeevonk II is a joint venture between Vattenfall and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

"It is the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s ambition to bring the electrolysis in the port up to a capacity of 2 to 2.5 GW by 2030. This new development brings us closer to our goal. The Maasvlakte area offers both plenty of space and the required infrastructure, such as the direct connection to the hydrogen network that is currently under construction. It confirms yet again that Rotterdam’s hydrogen economy is already underway," stated Boudewijn Siemons, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority.

The goal of the tender for plot Beta in the IJmuiden Ver wind farm project is to integrate generated energy into the energy system. The Zeevonk II initiative includes the development of a 2 GW offshore wind farm, a 50 MWp floating offshore solar farm, and an electrolyser. Commissioning of the wind farm is anticipated in 2029.

In addition, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has allocated a site adjacent to TenneT's future Amaliahaven high-voltage substation (380 kV) for the tender winner, allowing for up to 1 GW of electrolysis capacity. This location will receive the 2 GW direct current cable from the IJmuiden Ver wind farm for plot Beta.

Directly converting green power into hydrogen avoids adding strain to the electricity grid. Additionally, a hydrogen pipeline currently under construction runs alongside the site, enabling efficient transportation of generated hydrogen to customers. Furthermore, the site's proximity to the Evides water main enhances logistical efficiency.
