A new collaboration, under the name Transhydrogen Alliance, has signed a MoU for cooperation on production and import of green hydrogen and green ammonia to Europe via Port of Rotterdam.
Under the agreement, the consortium, including technology company Proton Ventures, trading company Trammo and energy company VARO, will set up an import terminal in Rotterdam for these new supply chains.
The Transhydrogen Alliance is now investigating the possibility of a first project for the production of green hydrogen from solar and wind parks and then transport it packaged in ammonia to Europe, the Port of Rotterdam informed.
The partnership aims to have the first project operational by 2024. In the long term, the alliance aims to import a maximum of 500,000 tons of green hydrogen (equal to a maximum of 2.5 million tons of green ammonia) per year via the port of Rotterdam in Europe.
This comes in line with the Port of Rotterdam’s plans to pioneer in green energy transition. Earlier this week, the port announced the signing of an MoU with the South Australian Government to study the feasibility of exporting green hydrogen made in South Australia to Port of Rotterdam.
The Port is doing similar feasibility studies regarding the production and shipping of hydrogen with a number of countries including Iceland, Portugal, Morocco, Uruguay, Chile, and countries in the Middle East.
