The Rilland hydrogen installation is part of the ‘Energy Landscape De Groene Kamers van Rilland’. The hydrogen installation has a capacity of 50-70MW and will supply green hydrogen to the industry and possibly also to farmers in the area, through the Gasunie backbone. The green energy is generated by solar parks in the municipalities of Reimerswaal and Woensdrecht, supplemented with wind energy.
The project has the potential to create various synergies with other societal challenges in the rural area. For instance, the residual heat and oxygen can be used to make the RWZI Bath and the Bathpolder greenhouse area more sustainable.
The area partners, ZonXP, H2XP, Van Lakwijk Agro, Zeeuwind, Stedin, the Scheldestromen Water Authority, and RWZI Bath (Brabant Delta Water Authority), along with Hogeschool Zeeland, have formed a consortium to conduct a feasibility study on these synergies. This feasibility study is, in part, made possible by a subsidy granted by the Province of Zeeland, in light of Zeeland in Stroomversnelling (Zeeland in Acceleration).
