The HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline will help unlock an energy revolution to decarbonise the North West.

The HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline will be the UK’s first 100 per cent hydrogen pipeline network at scale. It is essential to unlocking the benefits and ambitions of the HyNet North West programme and achieving the UK’s net zero by 2050 target.

Cadent’s HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline will deliver the infrastructure needed to provide 100 per cent low carbon hydrogen to industry, and provide connections into the wider gas network to allow for potential blended hydrogen to power homes across the region. The hydrogen pipeline is central to realising the benefits of the HyNet North West low carbon cluster.

We welcome Government’s announcements relating to hydrogen, including the Hydrogen Production Delivery Roadmap and associated Transport & Storage network pathway, which set out exciting new plans for how the UK hydrogen economy is set to grow over the coming decade.

You can read our latest update here to see how we have considered these announcements and the next steps for the Project.

What is HyNet North West?

HyNet North West is a ground-breaking decarbonisation cluster. It will unlock a low carbon economy for the North West of England and North Wales, placing the region at the forefront of the UK’s drive to net zero and wider energy security aims.

HyNet North West will produce, store and distribute hydrogen as well as capture and store carbon from industry in the North West of England and North Wales. It will use state-of-the art technology to build new infrastructure, while also upgrading and reusing existing infrastructure, which is currently involved in fossil fuel production.

While ambitious, delivery of HyNet North West meets the major challenges of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The infrastructure has been designed to remove carbon emissions quickly, helping the region and the UK to meet its net zero targets by 2050.

Cadent’s HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline will play a vital role by delivering low carbon hydrogen to industrial customers across the region.

In addition to the HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline, the wider HyNet North West programme includes:

  • Hydrogen Production Plant at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex – developed by Vertex Hydrogen
  • Hydrogen storage at Northwich – developed by INOVYN
  • Carbon dioxide pipeline – developed by Liverpool Bay CCS Ltd
