The fit out for ITM Power’s new 1G renewable hydrogen factory in Sheffield, the largest in the world, has started this week.
The AIM listed energy storage and clean fuel company has appointed Clegg Group to complete the fit out of the factory at Bessemer Park.
This will include an extension to the existing offices, extension of the stack manufacturing and production areas, as well as a test room for factory acceptance testing of products, all coupled with a 5MW power supply on site for factory testing of products.
The company said that, through standardisation, modularisation and the employment of world class practices, it will reach a capacity of 1GW within three years.
The programme of works will last 30 weeks, with the site will be ready for occupation in Q3 2020 by staff, and open to visitors shortly after that.
“This fit out will see ITM Power undertaking state-of-the-art manufacturing and reducing costs and lead times to access the many opportunities arising from the joint venture with Linde,” said CEO Graham Cooley.
