The H2eron project in Delfzijl is the next step in scaling up the production of green hydrogen to enable the decarbonization of industry in the north of the Netherlands.

The next step in green hydrogen development

While green hydrogen production is vital to reach European climate goals, current plants are limited in capacity from 1 to about 10 megawatt. 

In Delfzijl, HyCC is working to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative 20 megawatt project, Djewels. H2eron is the next step in this development and will more than double production volumes with a capacity of up to 50 megawatt. 

Reliable operations are key for industrial sustainability 

H2eron is developed with a heavy emphasis on reliability and security of supply. This is a requirement for many industrial customers, which need a continuous supply of green hydrogen in production processes to reduce CO2-emissions.  

The plant will be operated by HyCC, building on almost 100 years of experience in the safe operation of electrolysis facilities.

The hydrogen can be used by various industries in the Chemical Park Delfzijl, including for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), enabling CO2-reductions of up to 85% compared to fossil jet fuel.  

Hydrogen Valley

H2eron is part of the "Hydrogen Valley" an initiative of a broad coalition of public and private parties to realize large-scale production, storage, and distribution of green hydrogen as a raw material for industry, the built environment and mobility. The initiative is supported by the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (CHJU) of the European Commission.
