Hydrogen pioneer secures £5 million investment

One of Britain’s leading green energy integrators – Logan Energy – has secured £5 million of investment to develop its systems-led approach in the emerging hydrogen power sector.

Logan Energy, based in Edinburgh, with manufacturing facilities in Wallyford and development facilities at Heriot-Watt University, has received more than 50% of the overall figure from green energy investment company, Lanxing New Energy, based in Singapore.

The balance of the investment was made by Scottish Enterprise who continue to support Logan on their strategic growth path. The funds will enable Logan Energy to develop its technology base and facilities, grow its workforce within the hydrogen sector in Edinburgh and expand internationally.

Bill Ireland, pictured, chief executive of Logan Energy, said: “We have been working in the hydrogen sector for decades and see the energy market focussing on how hydrogen fits within the increasingly complex energy mix. Over the years, we have delivered to meet the changing demand and developed bespoke solutions which have now become our standard offering.

“This investment allows Logan Energy to move forward with our mission to secure our position as an industry leader providing Integrated Hydrogen Energy Systems and Energy Transition Solutions across all market sectors. It will also allow us to address the supply chain issues the industry is facing by developing key relationships with OEMs and equipment developers around the globe and ramp-up our ground-breaking Research & Development (R&D) capabilities here in the UK using our unique know-how around hydrogen systems.

Logan Energy has been working with a range of clients on a variety of projects in the Netherlands, Germany, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Spain, Singapore, and China. In Scotland, the company is installing a hydrogen electrolyser at Arbikie Distillery near Montrose which will enable the distillery to power its operations partly from environmentally- sustainable green hydrogen – that is hydrogen created using renewable electricity from the wind turbine and local water sources.
