EverWind Fuels has become the first green hydrogen producer in North America to secure the necessary permits for a commercial-scale facility.

Provincial authorities in Canada have granted environmental approval for EverWind to begin converting a former oil storage facility and marine terminal at Point Tupper in Nova Scotia into a green hydrogen and ammonia production hub.

EverWind expects the project’s first phase, producing and exporting 200,000 tonnes per annum, to be online in 2025. In 2026, it expects to ramp this up to 1 million tonnes per annum.

The company also has agreements with German energy firms E.ON and Uniper to acquire the production.

The green hydrogen produced by EverWind’s facility will be combined with nitrogen and converted into ammonia before being shipped, in liquid form, in tankers to Germany. Once in Germany, it can be retained as ammonia or turned back into green hydrogen.

Production during the facility’s first phase will be powered using wind and solar assets to be built nearby.
