A planned hydrogen ecosystem connecting Netherlands and Germany was recently showcased to King Willem-Alexander during a visit to duisport, Germany’s largest inland port.
The collaborative event also demonstrated how the transportation of low-emission hydrogen ‘is already possible’ and outlined three key projects that will enhance interconnectivity.
Hydrogen as an energy carrier for emission-free inland shipping: RH2INE/Condor H2The RH2INE network connects regional authorities and market players in order to make inland waterway transport on the Rotterdam-Duisburg-Basel line emission-free with hydrogen.
Using this network, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the Provincial Authority of Zuid-Holland has launched the Condor-H2 project with more than 40 partners, including duisport. The aim is to eliminate barriers and to make hydrogen transportation operationally, technically and financially feasible. The project focuses on standardisation, regulation and training, and also on encouraging investment.
