The UK business of German combined heat and power system (CHP) maker 2G Energy AG (ETR:2GB) will deliver a hydrogen CHP unit for a Scottish airport.

This will be the first CHP system in the UK that uses 100% hydrogen to generate heat and electricity, the company said on Monday.

It will be installed for an extended trial period at Kirkwall Airport in Orkney as part of actions by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) and Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) to decarbonise the airport.

2G Energy is partnering with Doosan Babcock for the project, which is supported by the Scottish government.
