Siemens Gamesa and SSE Renewables have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), by which the companies will jointly examine the options of producing and supplying green hydrogen via electrolysis using power from two wind farms in Ireland and Scotland, reports Renews.

The partnership's goal is to manage the entire value chain, including construction, production, storage and service.

"Hydrogen is rapidly becoming an important and exciting component of the strategy to decarbonise power production, heavy industry and transport, among other sectors," says SSE Renewables Managing Director Jim Smith.

"And the revolutionary production of green hydrogen from wind energy offers wider opportunity for markets such as Scotland and Ireland to further exploit our abundant wind resources."

The two companies plan on working with green hydrogen customers in a range of industries, including transport, major distilleries and gas grid operators.

The two facilities will be placed near two wind farms, one in Scotland and the other in Ireland. However, the companies have yet to reveal which wind farms.
