Development floating offshore hydrogen production plant South Korea

A South Korean consortium involving state research bodies and private companies has been launched to develop a floating offshore plant using wind power to produce hydrogen. The consortium aims to build a 1.0-megawatt pilot plant in 2022 before developing and demonstrating a gigawatt-class plant in 2030. The consortium led by Korea Maritime & Ocean University (KOMU) and Korean Register (KR), a maritime classification society, would develop a floating hydrogen production storage and an offloading facility called ‘Hydrogen FPSO’.
