RWE Partners with Haltermann Carless to Launch Green Hydrogen Project in Essex
04.18.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 18, 2024 [Solar Quarter]- RWE, the UK’s top electricity producer, and Haltermann Carless, a leading provider of hydrocarbon-based products, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop a green hydrogen facility in Harwich, Essex. This initiative aims to establish an electrolyser on the Haltermann Carless industrial site, known for manufacturing agrochemicals and fuel additives. The collaboration aligns with Haltermann Carless’s sustainability goals, including plans to produce sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) at this location.


The proposed facility would use green hydrogen production to help reduce CO2 emissions and expand the sustainable product line at the Harwich site. Feasibility studies have been completed, and both companies are now evaluating necessary grid and water connections to move the project forward.

Nicole Tang from RWE emphasized the project’s potential to provide local jobs, enhance the supply chain, and offer a more sustainable hydrogen source for industrial use. Keith Mead of Haltermann Carless highlighted the critical role of green hydrogen in achieving their CO2 reduction and portfolio diversification goals.

The Harwich site’s proximity to Freeport East integrates this project into the UK government’s broader “levelling up” strategy and its net zero targets, promising significant economic and employment benefits. The area is also developing a Green Energy Hub at Bathside Bay and houses RWE’s operations base for the Galloper windfarm, further emphasizing its role in advancing clean energy technologies.

RWE, which supplies around 15% of the UK’s electricity, is expanding its expertise in green hydrogen, aiming to establish 2GW of electrolyser capacity by 2030. This project in Harwich marks a significant step in that direction.
