Forecasted hydrogen demand from vessels required to serve floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea

Published 25 August 2023

As Wales seeks to de-carbonise and meet future green energy targets, the Welsh Hydrogen Port Refueling project aims to assess technologies that could support this mission and to explore the utilization of hydrogen as a marine fuel for powering the Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) vessel fleet in the Celtic Sea.

ORE Catapult’s involvement in the project looks to identify the vessel types and quantities required for servicing FOW in the Celtic Sea with a view to estimating the capacity of a hydrogen facility required at the Port of Milford Haven (PoMH) to service the FOW vessel fleet.

This report outlines work carried out to estimate the hydrogen required for different fuel adoption scenarios to service the predicted future Celtic Sea FOW vessel fleet.
