The energy company EI-H2 has announced plans to build a “green” hydrogen facility in Cork. Planning permission will be sought for a 50MegaWatt electrolysis plant in Aghada.
The project will create over 85 full-time direct and indirect jobs as the site develops and EI-H2 Aghada hopes to be operational before the end of 2023. The cost has been estimated in the region of €120m.
The completed project will make it one of the biggest green energy facilities of its kind in the world. According to EI-H2, when the facility is fully operational it will remove 63,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually from Irish industry and power generation.
The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney, has backed the project: “Ireland faces a challenge to decarbonise over the next decade, and a plan like that being put forward by EI-H2 would go some way towards helping us achieve what might now seem like impossible targets.
“Every business in Ireland should be looking at ways to decarbonise, starting with the largest, and working our way through our entire economy.”
