Get to know our PROJECT better!
Djewels is a project that aims to demonstrate the operational readiness of a 20 MW electrolyser for the production of green fuels (green methanol) in real-life industrial and commercial conditions. It will bring the technology from TRL 7 to TRL 8 and lay the foundations for the next scale-up step, towards a 100 MW electrolyser on the same site.
The project will be located in Delfzijl industrial park in the Netherlands, where HyCC already produces hydrogen through a chlor-alkali process and where the (bio)methanol producer, BioMCN, is also located. Delfzijl industrial park has a direct connection to the electricity transmission grid, and a low distribution network charges within, among other industrial clients that will create further conditions for scaling up green hydrogen production.
Beyond Delfzijl, the park is connected via a dense gas networks to other large-scale chemical and (petro)chemical hydrogen clients in the Netherlands and Germany. These could allow Djewels to be a stepping stone towards the creation of a new hydrogen valley, in line with the ambitions of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership and the regional roadmap, within the industrial cluster of Delfzijl, the Northern Netherlands and beyond.
This project is a front-runner among several hydrogen initiatives aimed at cutting carbon emissions and will be a significant milestone in the transition to a more sustainable, circular economy. The funding is granted by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership from the European Commission, a partnership that supports the development of innovative hydrogen technologies. Besides, the project also has the financial support of Waddenfonds.
