Hygen and N-Gen are delighted to be working together to deliver a state-of-the-art low carbon hydrogen production facility in east Bradford, off Bowling Back Lane. The development will be built on the Northern Gas Network (NGN) Birkshall gas storage site in Bradford. It will deliver one of the UK’s largest low carbon hydrogen production facilities with the aim of using renewable energy to produce hydrogen.
Once built, the facility will include a production facility to generate hydrogen from low carbon energy sources and a hydrogen refuelling station for local industry, buses and public and private sector fleets. The site could achieve the decarbonisation equivalent of removing 800 diesel-fuelled buses a day from the roads in West Yorkshire.
The refuelling facility will benefit the people of Bradford and the wider community with lower carbon emissions in the area contributing towards improving the air quality and contributing towards UK’s carbon reduction commitments made at COP26.
The project is significant for Bradford’s future economic growth plans, which could end up being worth £900m and create over 9,000 high-quality jobs by 2030.
