The basis of the agreement is to interconnect the two hydrogen hubs and secure a hydrogen-fuelled future for Europe.

Rotterdam is additionally being regarded as the future ‘hydrogen gateway’ to Europe and Duisburg as the hub for Germany. Setting up a physical link between the two could be a key development in scaling and accelerating adoption.

Markus Bangen, CEO of Duisberg Port, said, ‘We are facing major challenges that we will overcome together much faster, more efficiently and more intelligently.

“Particularly in the areas of digitalisation and the energy transition, it is important to work together and share our knowledge and expertise.

“I am therefore very pleased that we will continue the trusting partnership between the ports of Duisburg and Rotterdam.”

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
