Everwind and Port of Rotterdam collaborating on green hydrogen supply chain development

North American firm EverWind Fuels is partnering with the Port of Rotterdam to advance the green hydrogen supply chain.

With this partnership, EverWind’s green hydrogen production from its projects in Atlantic Canada will support Port of Rotterdam’s creation of an international hub for hydrogen production, import, application, and transport to other countries in Northwest Europe.

Three times as much energy is currently transported via Rotterdam than is consumed in the whole of the Netherlands, and there is an expectation that arond eighteen million tonnes of hydrogen will be imported via Rotterdam in 2050.

EverWind recently completed front-end engineering design (FEED), which included over 110,000 hours of engineering, marking a major milestone in the development of its project and it represents the first announced completion of FEED for a large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility in North America.

Boudewijn Siemons, CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority, commented: ‘As Europe’s leading energy hub we recognise the significance of green hydrogen for the decarbonization of the European industry and we are establishing infrastructure, facilities and cooperations that will help deliver on this. EverWind supports our efforts for the import of green hydrogen by establishing a significant project for large-scale green hydrogen production. We expect EverWind’s green hydrogen and green ammonia production will to be among the first volumes from North America to land in Europe.’

Trent Vichie, Founder and CEO, EverWind Fuels, said: ‘Establishing successful green hydrogen projects requires establishing a global supply chain, and we are excited to work with Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest seaport to support this endeavour.

‘We’re confident that our projects in Atlantic Canada will produce the greenest, most cost-competitive green hydrogen in North America to decarbonise carbon-intensive processes domestically and abroad.’
