A hydrogen production facility is coming to Clinton and it will be built on land that once housed a youth jail.
The Municipality of Central Huron announced this week via press release that it has signed a binding letter of intent with Carlsun Energy to lease the fenced-in 30 acre property of the former Bluewater Youth Centre
The Municipality purchased the land back in 2021. The facility hasn’t been operational since 2012.
Carlsun says it’s the first step in exploring the development of a clean fuel and fertilizer plant in Centre Huron.
Jason Van Geel of Carlsun Energy says that as the company explores the opportunity, they will be engaging with municipalities and the public to provide understanding of the proposed scope and to listen to input.
The release says the proposed project is early-stage and will be subject to all appropriate reviews and approvals.
Carlsun Energy Solutions is a Port Elgin based engineering and contracting company with over 20 years combined experience managing large-scale renewable energy projects and hydrogen integration for industry.
