Subsidiary of BAES Infrastructure, Bear Head Energy has announced it has received environmental assessment approval for the company’s green hydrogen and ammonia production, storage, and loading facility in Nova Scotia, USA.

Bear Head is permitted for up to two gigawatts of hydrogen electrolysers. Bear Head could produce up to 350,000 tonnes of hydrogen and two million tonnes of ammonia per year, positioning Nova Scotia to be a leader in the production of green hydrogen and ammonia and a critical part of the global energy transition.

Paul MacLean, managing director of Bear Head Energy says: ‘We are grateful to have achieved this enormous milestone for Bear Head…We believe green hydrogen and ammonia will play a fundamental role in facilitating the global energy transition, and this approval demonstrates that Canada and Nova Scotia are at the forefront of making this a reality.’

‘I would like to thank the Bear Head management team and the Government of Nova Scotia for their efforts in getting Bear Head to this milestone. Today’s Environmental Assessment approval will support the creation of a hub in Canada that can supply key markets across the world, accelerate global energy transition efforts,’ adds BAES Infrastructure CEO Jamie Cemm.

Bear Head will be developed in phases and is expected to commence deliveries of green hydrogen and ammonia by 2028.
