SK Group will lead a project to build a “hydrogen port” in Korea, with an energy ecosystem capable of using hydrogen.
outh Korea considers ports the best place for a hydrogen ecosystem that can produce, import, and supply hydrogen to consumers.
For this reason, the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries selected SK Group to build a port hydrogen complex station, converting hydrogen fuel for port mobility and ships.
In fact, the government aims to supply more than 60% of South Korea’s total hydrogen consumption through hydrogen ports by 2040.
What is more, Minister Moon Seong-hyeok, stated that:
To realize carbon neutrality in 2050, we plan to build hydrogen ports step by step by 2040
Now, SK E&S will create the first hydrogen complex station in the southern port of Yeosu and its adjacent Gwangyang port by 2023.
The station will inclide hydrogen charging stations, commercial vehicle garages, and convenience facilities. It will also serve as a base for supplying liquefied hydrogen gas to ports and a hinterland complex.
