ITM Power and ABO Wind to develop wind–hydrogen projects in European markets

UK-based ITM Power has signed an agreement with ABO Wind in Germany to identify and develop wind-to-hydrogen projects in the UK, Ireland, and Germany.

Wiesbaden-based ABO Wind initiates wind farm projects, acquires site locations, organises all technical and business planning, arranges international bank financing, and delivers turnkey wind farms.

To date, ABO Wind has connected more than 350 turbines with a total capacity of more than 600 MW through projects in the UK, Europe (e.g. Germany and Ireland), and Latin America.

In addition to managing its own projects developed after commissioning, ABO Wind also takes on the commercial and technical management of wind farms on behalf of international operators. ABO Wind currently manages 297 wind farms.

‘ABO Wind is a market leader in Germany for turnkey wind power projects, and is increasingly developing a strong presence in the UK,’ says Phil Doran, Managing Director of ITM Power GmbH in Germany.

‘This is an ideal partnership for ITM Power to roll out green hydrogen energy systems,’ continues Doran. ‘We are delighted to have found such a significant partner who shares our vision of wind power coupled to energy storage.’

‘ITM Power is gaining an international reputation in the area of hydrogen energy systems, and we are looking forward to delivering some world-leading MW-scale projects together with our partner,’ adds Thomas Nietsch, Head of Prototype Projects at ABO Wind.

ITM Power is leading a project to investigate the feasibility of injecting hydrogen – generated from electrolysis using excess renewables – into the UK’s gas networks. ITM Power is also providing 'green' hydrogen for energy storage (grid balancing) and for hydrogen-powered vehicles in the EcoIsland project in the Isle of Wight.
