Hydrogen CHP (Credit 2G)

Kirkwall Airport CHP

Project: Kirkwall Airport CHP (Combined Heat and Power) Unit

Funder: The Scottish Government via Highlands and Islands Enterprise

Project overview:

This project will see a novel hydrogen combustion engine, manufactured by 2G and provided by Doosan Babcock, installed and demonstrated at Kirkwall Airport in Orkney in 2021. 2G’s hydrogen-ready CHP system will be coupled with the airport’s existing heating system to meet the heating and power requirements of the main airport buildings. During the trial, the CHP plant will use green hydrogen supplied by EMEC to generate electricity as well as recover and use by-product heat to deliver an efficient and comprehensive energy solution.

Partners:

  • EMEC
  • Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL)
  • Doosan Babcock

EMEC’s role: 

EMEC will supply the green hydrogen for this project. This work forms part of a package of initiatives being driven by EMEC and HIAL to decarbonise the airport. A range of opportunities were identified in an energy consumption study delivered by EMEC through the ReFLEX Orkney project.
