Clean energy, sustainable jobs and a green future.

Our vision is to develop an industrial scale green hydrogen facility on the island of Flotta in Orkney.

This potential £multi-billion project would utilise a repurposed area of the existing Flotta Terminal to create a green hydrogen hub powered by gigawatts of offshore wind projects in the seas to the west of Orkney.

If successful, this ambitious plan – which could be realised in the later years of this decade – would deliver a new wave of renewable employment alongside terawatt-hours of green hydrogen.

Low carbon ambition

This hydrogen could be exported to Europe, blended into the gas grid at St Fergus and become an international maritime green hydrogen refueling hub.

If realised, the Flotta Hydrogen Hub would contribute significantly to the UK’s low carbon ambitions, create long-term skilled jobs and place Scotland front and centre of the evolving global hydrogen revolution.

The project is being developed by site owners Repsol Sinopec in partnership with Uniper, TotalEnergies, Green Investment Group, RIDG and the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).

A new future for the Flotta Terminal

This potential £multi-billion project would utilise a repurposed area of the Flotta Terminal to create a green hydrogen hub powered by offshore wind around Orkney. This would offer:

  • New employment opportunities for existing workers
  • Significant inward investment
  • 25+ years of operation
  • A maritime low carbon refuelling port

All ensuring that Orkney remains at the heart of the UK's evolving energy revolution.
