Logan Energy selected as partner in hydrogen production project

Scotland-based clean energy solutions provider Logan Energy has been selected as the hydrogen technology partner for the €3.6mn (£3.24mn) EU funded SEAFUEL project, which aims to demonstrate the sustainable integration of renewable fuels into transportation.

Logan Energy has been tasked with designing and building a hydrogen generation and refuelling station for the project, which will see solar energy be used to convert seawater into hydrogen with the purpose of being used as fuel for local transport on the island of Tenerife.

The building of the refuelling station is currently underway at Logan Energy’s Technology Centre in Wallyford, East Lothian. The company will deploy the station in Tenerife by the end of 2019.

Bill Ireland, CEO of Logan Energy, said: “It’s important to remember that this project is hugely significant not just for remote communities in Europe but around the world. The islands and their inhabitants rely on imported fossil fuels but can in fact become partially or wholly self-sufficient in terms of energy. The SEAFUEL project will go a long way to facilitating the transition to a low carbon economy.”
