The energy company Uniper has signed a contract with the port of Rotterdam to develop the production of green hydrogen at the north-west European hub.

The two organizations have signed a memorandum setting out Uniper’s goals for the expansion of the production infrastructure, the port authority announced in a statement on its website on Monday.

A recent feasibility study showed that Uniper’s Maasvlakte facility is well suited for large-scale production of green hydrogen, with wind farms in the North Sea providing the renewable energy required.

“The transition from gray hydrogen to sustainable green hydrogen in the Rotterdam industry for the production of cleaner fuels and as a raw material in the chemical sector is an important step towards CO2 neutrality”, said the port of Rotterdam in its statement.

“In combination with the import of sustainable hydrogen, sufficient storage capacities and a national and international hydrogen transport network, this can lead to the production of gray hydrogen being completely stopped.”

Uniper will next commission a nine-month front-end engineering and design study for an electrolysis plant to produce the hydrogen in order to be able to make an investment decision next year.

Samples from Antwerp that tested total sediment potential (TSP) results that exceeded the ISO 8217 specification limit of 0.10% m / m.

The company is already in discussions with LNG bunker suppliers such as Pavilion Energy, Total and FueLNG.

The port authority has signed a letter of intent with PT Pertamina Patra Niaga to set up bunkers in the Sunda Strait and other Indonesian waters.
