Feasibility Study on Export of Green Hydrogen to Rotterdam
The South Australian Government and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to study the feasibility of exporting
The South Australian Government and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to study the feasibility of exporting green hydrogen made in South Australia to Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port. This MoU connects some of the world’s most ambitious players in the hydrogen economy and renewable energy. South Australia has committed around USD 15 million to support green hydrogen production projects being led by AGIG at Tonsley, H2U at Cultana and Neoen in the state's mid-North. The partnership of South Australia and the Port of Rotterdam will build upon a USD 1.25 million hydrogen export modelling tool and prospectus, released in October 2020, looking at establishing green hydrogen supply chains from South Australia.
South Australia is the first sub-national jurisdiction to enter into such an agreement with the Port of Rotterdam. The Port is doing similar feasibility studies regarding the production and shipping of hydrogen with a number of countries including Iceland, Portugal, Morocco, Uruguay, Chile and countries in the Middle East.
