Hydrogen Production, SMRs Touted for Virginia Data Center Hub

Darrell Proctor of Power reports on an SMR hub coming to Virginia.

The C3 Take
  • Green Energy Partners and IP3 International have announced plans to build a data center hub adjacent to Surry Nuclear Power Plant in southeastern Virginia.
  • The hub will feature 20 to 30 data centers and will be powered with small modular reactors.
  • Green Energy Partners and IP3 plan to have these SMRs develop green hydrogen and provide backup power to Virginia’s grid.

“The companies said they plan to use the thermal energy generated by the SMRs to support the electrolysis of water into clean hydrogen, which could be used to fuel backup generators that would support the site. Hydrogen, which can be burned in engines that also run on natural gas, is being tested as an alternative to diesel fuel in backup generators. The fuel also could support other projects in Virginia using hydrogen fuel.”
