The NortH2 project will be jointly developed by Shell, the Port of Groningen, and Dutch gas grid operator Gasunie. The project will first become operational with an initial offshore wind capacity between 3 GW and 4 GW in 2030, to eventually be scaled up to 10 GW in 2040; hydrogen produced will be delivered to industrial users in the Netherlands and Northwestern Europe.
