Shell, ENGIE, Vopak and Anthony Veder have reached agreements to develop hydrogen chain from Sines to Rotterdam. The aim is to start producing hydrogen in Portugal and ship it in liquid form to Rotterdam.
REN, Port of Sines, Port of Rotterdam Authority, Gasunie and ABN AMRO are supporting the project. The first hydrogen should be shipped in 2028. The aim is to use it as fuel for heavy transport.
In addition to ENGIE, Shell, Vopak and Anthony Vede, supporting partners of the project are REN, Port of Sines, Port of Rotterdam, Gasunie and ABN AMRO.
The new agreement comes after the signing of an MoU in 2020 between the Portuguese and Dutch governments to develop strategic maritime hydrogen corridors.
In addition to the H2Sines.RDAM project, the ports of Sines and Rotterdam have also been collaborating together on the MAGPIE Project– sMArt Green Ports for Integrated Efficient multimodal mobility, a call framed within the European Green Deal – Horizon 2020.
At the same time, the port is setting up the first green hydrogen corridor between southern and norther Europe with Spanish energy company Cepsa, ensuring a green hydrogen supply chain between two of Europe’s main ports, Rotterdam and Algeciras. The trade lane is expected to be operational by 2027.
