The Group and its partners have just launched the H2Sines project feasibility studies. This will access the feasibility of creating the first supply chain for liquified hydrogen, rallying Portugal to The Netherlands. This flagship project for Europe could accelerate the decarbonisation of heavy mobility. The purpose of the H2Sines project, with which ENGIE is closely involved, is to produce green hydrogen using water electrolysis in Portugal, a country of sunshine and wind, and transport it by sea to Rotterdam in Netherlands, a major European port, as close as possible to the requirements of heavy mobility stakeholders. It will start with feasibility studies during the summer 2022, which is due to last six months, alongside an IPCEI (Important Projects of Common European Interest) request. The studies should validate the relevance of the project and its production potential, currently estimated at 100 tonnes a day. Pending a positive consensus, the goal would be to start operating deliveries of liquified hydrogen by 2027.The feasibility studies will include on building a specialised ship capable of transporting liquid hydrogen from the industrial port of Sines (Portugal) to Rotterdam. Given anticipated volumes and scales, it will be a one-of-a-kind worldwide project. Downstream the value chain, liquid hydrogen will be transported to clients via lorries, using specific trailers and reservoirs.Anthony Veder, a specialist in the maritime transport of liquified gas, will be participating in designing, manufacturing, and operating the liquid hydrogen transport ship, which will be unique, given anticipated volumes and scales. Finally, Vopak, the largest independent operator of storage terminals in the world, will be in charge of the construction and operation of the terminals, as well as connecting them to the distribution network. Supported by two major potential end-users, Airbus and Daimler, the project is perfectly in line with the European Union’s strategy of developing the use of green hydrogen to decarbonise heavy mobility across sea, road, and air transport.
