Scottish Power is planning to build the new infrastructure at the port of Felixstowe, this will then power trains, trucks, and ships. The plant will be a 100megawatt and will have the capacity to power 1300 hydrogen trucks from the Suffolk port by 2026.

Petrol and diesel Prices have soared over the past few years, putting a strain on transport companies. Due to this, the demand for green fuel has stepped up massively which has encouraged the energy to company further invest in this project.

Scottish Power plans to build the facility within the port. This is one of the busiest in the UK, this will mean that all transport vehicles will have easy access to green fuel. The energy firm plans to supply hydrogen to the vehicles and machinery used by the port. Around 6000 heavy goods vehicles, a year use the port.

Green hydrogen is produced by using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, the gas is then burnt to produce a powder, this means only water vapour is released into the air and no greenhouse gasses. Logistics providers are increasing their research into green hydrogen as an option to cut bills on fuel and reduce carbon emissions.

There is a high demand for this not only from the port where the facility will be based but also from other logistics and distribution companies as well as rail transport companies.
