Net zero hydrogen for hyperscale datacentres in West Virginia

7 February 2024

Battelle Carbon Services has been contracted to drill and collect stratigraphic test well data, acquire seismic data and submit Class VI CO2 sequestration permit applications in West Virginia for Fidelis New Energy’s Mountaineer GigaSystemTM project in Mason County.

The Mountaineer GigaSystemTM is a planned lifecycle-carbon-neutral hydrogen production facility employing FidelisH2® technologies, described as a “novel hydrogen production pathway”, using natural gas and renewable energy. Among users of the net zero hydrogen would be the nearby Monarch Cloud Campus, a proposed hyperscale carbon neutral data centre park that would use the hydrogen for powering and cooling data centres.

Mountaineer is a participant in the Appalachian Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub (ARCH2), a regional clean hydrogen hub formed to support the “commercial lift-off” of a full value hydrogen hub across communities in the Northern Appalachian region.

The Monarch Cloud Campus envisages 1000 MW of capacity on an 1100 acre site.
