Work Package 5: Plant technologies

WP5’s main objective is to assess the below and above ground plant and process technology which is required for a safe operation of the hydrogen underground storage plant. Both status quo and future development potentials of the technology will be assessed mostly based on insights from today?s natural gas operations.Particular attention will be directed towards key underground and above ground technologies,the relevant time framework and related costs (CAPEX, OPEX). An important element of WP5 will be the analysis ofplant safety, codes and standards, as well as interactions with focus groups to investigatethe issues of public acceptance of the technology.

This work package is led by Shell from the Netherlands.
