Triton Power Station is currently fuelled by natural gas and provides power and steam to industrial users at Saltend Chemicals Park in addition to energy to the national grid. Decarbonising the power station by displacing natural gas with low carbon hydrogen can considerably reduce its emissions, while also reducing those of its users, such as chemicals manufacturers at the adjacent chemicals park. Initially, hydrogen can be blended with natural gas at a ratio of circa 30% by volume, with the ambition to increase this to 100% as technology evolves and hydrogen storage infrastructure develops. Phase 1 will reduce emissions at Saltend Chemicals Park by nearly 1 MT p.a., with greater savings over time as the level of hydrogen blend increases. Resulting low carbon chemicals manufactured at the park could also command greater interest on the domestic and international market.
