Cadent’s HyNet North West Hydrogen Pipeline will take hydrogen produced at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex to industrial users and power generators across the North West, supporting the switch away from natural gas to a low carbon economy in the region.

The project has the potential to prevent 10 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year being emitted into the atmosphere by 2030. The project will also secure existing high skilled employment in the region and introduce new green jobs for future generations.

Cadent has identified potential route corridors for the pipeline. The pipeline will extend to Northwich, St Helens, Partington, Stanlow areas of the North West region. This draft proposal is the basis for this non-statutory public consultation.

Local people are now being asked to help Cadent develop the route of the pipeline and sites for other related infrastructure. The consultation will run until 23:59 on 11 March 2022. Cadent has launched an online consultation hub where people can find out more about the project and provide feedback. The project will also be holding eight in-person events across the project area and two webinars.

“Cadent is committed to supporting a Net Zero Carbon future for the UK” said Rob Donovan, Cadent Head of Project Delivery for HyNet. “Delivery of these plans will be essential to unlocking the ambitions of HyNet North West which would benefit the area for many years and generations to come”
