    GreenPower has received planning consent for a green hydrogen production and distribution center on Scotland’s west coast. Situated at the Glenshellach Industrial Estate in Oban, Argyll and Bute, the project aims to be operational by late 2025.


    GreenPower, known for operating the 46MW Carraig Gheal wind farm nearby, plans to generate hydrogen through water electrolysis powered by renewable energy.


    This initiative, named the Argyll Hydrogen Hub, holds promise for facilitating the shift from fossil fuels to zero-carbon alternatives in various sectors including transportation, industry, and heating in the region.


    Additionally, GreenPower is exploring the possibility of hydrogen production at its other energy sites, such as the proposed Barachander wind farm, which is a counterpart to Carraig Gheal.


    Paul Minto, Director of Green Hydrogen at GreenPower, said: “It is an exciting time for the new hydrogen market in UK and with this planning consent for the Argyll Hydrogen Hub we are putting Oban and the region on the UK green hydrogen map.”


    “Green hydrogen is an important zero-carbon fuel that can help meet climate obligations while delivering sustainable fuel for a wide range of purposes.”


    “We expect our green hydrogen facility to begin production by the end of 2025, and we welcome all potential users to contact us to discuss supply options.”


    Rob Forrest, GreenPower CEO said: “As a company rooted in Scotland we already have renewable energy facilities in Argyll, and we are delighted with this approval which means we can take further steps in the region to create clean, green jobs and more economic development.”


    “We can see a future where all heavy road transport and shipping is powered by green hydrogen, and where any industry using heating oils or gas can switch fuels to run on environmentally friendly green hydrogen.”
