NCCC Patron member Proton Ventures BV, an engineering and development company in the Netherlands, together with Trammo DMCC, and VARO, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) for a joint initiative and mutual cooperation on the production and import of green hydrogen and green ammonia into Europe via Rotterdam, as well as export thereof from selected locations worldwide. The Port of Rotterdam Authority supports this consortium, especially in its effort to set up an import terminal in Rotterdam for these new supply chains.
The consortium of parties (collectively, “Transhydrogen Alliance”) intends to start its collaboration with an initial project for the production of green hydrogen produced from solar and wind rich areas and the import of such hydrogen in the form of green ammonia into Europe. The initial project is expected to be completed by 2024.
Following success of the initial project, “Transhydrogen Alliance” targets the import up to 500,000 tonnes of green hydrogen equivalent to up to 2.5 million tonnes green ammonia per year via the Port of Rotterdam.
“Transhydrogen Alliance” offers a fully integrated team in the green hydrogen and green ammonia supply chain with knowledge and experience in technology, logistics and sales. Pricing is expected to be competitive compared to that of other supply chains for hydrogen production based on renewable energy.
Hans Vrijenhoef, CEO of Proton Ventures: “Transhydrogen Alliance offers an integrated supply chain, with reduced costs for the import of green hydrogen and green ammonia into Europe. Through advanced technology we can make green energy available at an affordable cost. Proton Ventures, with its team of dedicated engineers, has been working on its state-of-the-art technology for over 10 years and in combination with renewable energy cost reductions our vision is becoming reality. We are very excited to be part of this group and look forward to working together with current participants as front runners in the energy transition.”
