Air Products and Mabanaft, through its subsidiary Oiltanking Deutchland, have revealed intentions to build ‘Germany’s first’ large-scale green energy import terminal in the Port of Hamburg to provide the country with hydrogen.
Under a joint development agreement, revealed today (November 17), the companies will look to facilitate the import of green ammonia from large-scale green hydrogen production facilities operated by Air Products and its partners around the world.
H2 View understands, the intention is to convert the ammonia to green hydrogen at Air Products’ facilities in Hamburg, from which it will be distributed to buyers across northern Germany, which is hoped to respond to accelerating demand for clean energy to meet climate objectives and diversify energy supply.
It comes as Europe strives to meet its REPowerEU goals of importing 10 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen by 2030, as well as boosting domestic production to 10 million tonnes, in a bid to meet its Fit for 55 target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030, while cutting reliance on Russian fossil fuels.
