VoltH2 has selected Sweco as its partner for the design and development of new green hydrogen plant in the Netherlands

The European energy company VoltH2 has selected Sweco as its partner for the design and development of a new hydrogen plant in Delfzijl in the Netherlands.

The production facility has received the necessary permits and is currently in the design phase. The plant is expected to start producing approximately 5,000 tonnes of green hydrogen yearly from the second half of 2027 and will supply local industries.

VoltH2 focuses on the development and operation of large-scale green hydrogen production plants across Europe to supply the local industry and transportation sectors with renewable energy. The company has secured permits for the development of three green hydrogen plants in the Netherlands and will develop an additional three plants in Germany.

Sweco is already involved in the design of VoltH2’s plants in Vlissingen and Terneuzen (Netherlands) and has now been selected to provide basic engineering and design services in the project for the new plant in Delfzijl.

“VoltH2 has chosen to partner with Sweco because they combined international reach and local presence in the regions that we are targeting. Their knowledge of local legislation makes Sweco well-suited for advising us in the permitting processes. Moreover, Sweco has relevant hydrogen projects in their track record and top experts with the necessary technical know-how,” says André Jurres.

Sweco has extensive experience in areas such as integrating electrolysis technologies, hydrogen storage and treatment, and alternative hydrogen carriers. Client projects span the entire hydrogen chain encompassing investment plans, permits, and production, import, transport, storage and equipment modifications.

“These are exciting times during which all stakeholders need to move quickly to enable the green transition. At Sweco, we are well-positioned to advise VoltH2 in this area since we have cross-country specialist knowledge gained from numerous hydrogen projects across Europe. Our experts have been participating in this project through the investment and permit phase and can quickly deliver a detailed preliminary design to VoltH2,” says Åsa Bergman.
