Subsea7 has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with EnBW to jointly study several offshore wind-powered hydrogen production concepts. Within the framework of a study, the two partners will explore the technical and commercial elements of green offshore hydrogen production, from both pilot and commercial scale facilities, considering bottom-fixed and floating options.

EnBW will undertake studies on wind farm design and optimisation as well as provide operational and maintenance expertise to the overall technical and economic evaluation.

Subsea7 will be responsible for the research on subsea electrical and flowline infrastructure, flow assurance and integration of the hydrogen production system on WTG foundations or separate platforms.

The companies will jointly perform economic analysis to establish a commercial model and determine the development and operational cost with the ultimate goal of establishing the levelised cost of hydrogen and the technical and economic potential of the different offshore hydrogen production solutions.

Stian Sande, Strategy Director Energy Transition said: “We are pleased to be working with EnBW to explore and develop solutions for offshore hydrogen production. To progress a nascent industry further, it is important to have strong collaboration between developers, operators, contractors and technology providers. As a global leader in delivering complex energy projects, Subsea7 continues to work with our partners and clients to deliver the energy solutions the world needs, for today and tomorrow.”
