The core of the AquaVentus vision
The new AlphaVentus
With AquaSector, the power plant-scale “proof of concept” goes into operation: technical challenges are solved in the pilot project for realizing gigawatt-scale projects. The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) currently prepares the “SEN-1” wind priority area in the German Bight for the tender by mid-2022. The consortium of operators and manufacturers successful in the tender will then build the world’s first large-scale offshore hydrogen park – the new AlphaVentus.
With an installed capacity of 300 MW, this produces large quantities of green hydrogen on a central electrolysis platform at the wind farm. Up to 22,000 t of green hydrogen will then be delivered onshore via the central AquaDuctus collection pipeline.
