UK Government will invest a £4.8 million in Holyhead hydrogen hub.
Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has been instrumental in securing the investment after talking to ministers and business leaders on the island over many months and making the case for Anglesey to be at the forefront of green technology.
The hydrogen production centre will be designed to produce and distribute green hydrogen made using renewables for use in HGVs, helping to decarbonize high carbon-emitting transport.
The project could indirectly support 500 jobs and bring further investment into the island.
In addition, Virginia welcomed an extra £4.4 million per year from 2021/22 for the North-Wales Growth Deal. Anglesey’s tidal project Morlais is set to be a major beneficiary of this increased investment.
