A newly formed group is developing a European hub for green fuels, such as hydrogen, in Trekantomraadet, made up of seven municipalities on the Danish peninsula of Jutland.
The cooperation, which includes energy and technology companies, plans to develop industrial scale Power-to-X (PtX) facilities for green hydrogen made with renewable energy and further processing into ammonia and methanol for use as green marine and aviation fuels.
Everfuel today (12th Feb) confirmed its involvement in the project. To the hub, the company brings its HySynergy project in Fredericia which is expected to be operational from mid-2022. Planning for the Phase II expansion is well underway.
HySynergy Phase II is expected to produce green hydrogen for zero emission mobility and as refinery input, but production of ammonia and methanol as PtX products is also being considered.
Other companies involved include COWI, Orsted, Vattenfall and the Frederica refinery.
Commenting on the developments, Jacob Krogsgaard the CEO of Everfuel, said, “Our HySynergy Phase I 20MW electrolyser under development adjacent to the Fredericia refinery is an initial core asset for the green fuels hub.”
“With HySynergy Phase II we plan to take it to the next level with a 300MW electrolyser, scheduled to be operational by 2025, making the Triangle Region one of the leading PtX hubs in Europe.”
“Together we can develop the industrial solutions required to decarbonise society and enable zero emission mobility. We look forward to the cooperation and to make our home region a Northern European beacon for green fuels through developing Power-to-X production facilities at scale.”
The initial focus will be to formalise the cooperation. The municipalities and companies will create a project group to lead the joint efforts as well as seek public European and Danish funding supporting the green transition activities.
