200MW hydrogen facility planned for the Port of Rotterdam

With construction set to begin in the near future, it is hoped that the terminal will be fully operational from 2026.

This will become a vital link in the hydrogen supply chain within Europe and could additionally highlight the potential of ammonia as a means to import hydrogen from overseas.

The site offers space for the development of an installation for converting ammonia into hydrogen and, in the future, this installation is expected to be connected to the national hydrogen network of Gasunie, that can serve the future hydrogen market in Northwestern Europe.

HES operates a strategic location with quayside capacity and direct access from the sea where Gasunie has at this location infrastructure of existing storage tanks and system of pipelines.

Hydrogen is being incorporated into the European energy vector as a means to transition away from fossil fuels and oil. This will also help maintain energy security and end reliance on Russian imports.
