Uniper to import 140,000 tonnes of hydrogen via German-Danish pipeline

German energy company Uniper has agreed to import hydrogen from Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’ (CIP) 1GW hydrogen production project in Denmark.

The HØST PtX Esbjerg project, located on the Danish west coast, is expected to be connected to the German hydrogen backbone via a new pipeline connecting the two countries, set to come online in 2028.

Under the agreement, the two companies aim to develop a model to bring up to 140,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually to German customers. Uniper intends to include the green hydrogen from HØST in its green gas portfolio and supply it at “varying profiles with different contract lengths.”
