Rotterdam Port Authority, Koole Terminals, Chiyoda Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation sign MoU to study commercial scale hydrogen imports into the Netherlands
TOKYO, July 30, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – The Port of Rotterdam Authority (POR), Koole Terminals, Chiyoda Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation have reached a Memorandum of Understanding for the Joint Study of Commercial Scale Hydrogen Imports to the port of Rotterdam using Chiyoda’s hydrogen storage and transport technology (SPERA HydrogenTM).
In May 2020, POR announced its Hydrogen Vision, under which it aims to develop green hydrogen supply chains for North West Europe and become a hub for imports of ‘hydrogen. Its objectives are to produce 20 million tonnes of hydrogen per year by 2050, with scaled volume targets of 100,000 to 200,000 tonnes by 2025 and 300,000 to 400,000 tonnes by 2030.
Successfully completed in December 2020, the first international hydrogen supply chain using SPERA Hydrogen connects the nation of Brunei and the Japanese city of Kawasaki. Technology is expected to play an important role in realizing larger commercial scale hydrogen supply chains around the world. Supported by a strong and shared interest in both Chiyoda’s technology and its commercial potential, the aforementioned parties to this MoU have already engaged in numerous discussions regarding future applications and opportunities.
In accordance with the terms of this MoU, MC will take the initiative to forge a commercial hydrogen value chain. Through this initiative and others, sogo shosha demonstrates its commitment to preserving the environment and developing sustainable societies by helping to meet long-term emission reduction targets and accelerate energy transitions in Europe. .
* SPERA Hydrogen is an organic chemical hydride (OCH) hydrogen storage and transport technology. LOHC (liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier) technologies allow hydrogen to be transported safely in chemical tanks at normal temperature and atmospheric pressure.
