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

Cadent’s proposed pipeline will be the UK’s first 100 per cent hydrogen pipeline. The pipeline project is part of the HyNet low carbon cluster and will deliver hydrogen to multiple industrial users and power generators in the region. It will also take hydrogen to gas blending points for introduction into the existing gas network, along with connecting associated hydrogen storage facilities to help balance the supply and demand on the pipeline.

Following the build of the hydrogen production plant at Stanlow, Cadent anticipates starting construction activities on the first part of the hydrogen network from 2025.

We’re at an early stage in our work but you can find out more about our project and the wider vision of HyNet using the links at the top of this page.
