250MW green hydrogen plant BP and HyCC one step closer


The Netherlands – HyCC and BP have signed an agreement for the further development of a 250-megawatt green hydrogen plant in the port area of Rotterdam. The final investment decision is expected next year.

The green hydrogen produced by the installation will replace fossil-based feedstocks currently used at BP’s Rotterdam refinery and other industries in the port area. The project could help to reduce CO2 emissions with up to 350,000 tonnes per year.


The project will be located at the Maasvlakte in the port of Rotterdam. This year, the parties will select a technology supplier, further develop the design of the plant and start the environmental studies for the licensing process. This will allow a final investment decision to be made in 2023. Due to its important contribution to technology development and CO2 reduction, the project is supported by the Dutch Government.
