This project is the planning phase which defines the principles and specification of a full scale NTS hydrogen test facility. The project will be split into 3 work packages, detail design of the test rig, master testing plan and materials testing and enable the building of a test facility to test critical components with upto 20% hydrogen/methane gas blend and upto 100% hydrogen.
The objective of this project is to design an off-line test facility, to specify a test programme and to carry out some laboratory tests to demonstrate that transporting hydrogen and hydrogen/natural gas blends in repurposed National Transmission System assets is no less safe than transporting natural gas now.
The aim of the FutureGrid programme is to build a NTS test facility at DNV GL Spadeadam using decommissioned NTS assets (saving circa £5m in procurement costs) which will benefit the whole gas network.
