Tank storage company Evos, Port of Amsterdam and Hydrogenious LOHC have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to achieve large-scale import facilities for hydrogen at the Port of Amsterdam. The facilities will comprise a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) dehydrogenation plant with a final release capacity of up to 100-500 tonnes of hydrogen per day, as well as related storage and handling facilities.  

All partners are founding members of the H2A platform, which focuses on the development of supply chains for green hydrogen imports through the Port of Amsterdam. There is a need for a LOHC import terminal and a plant for the continuous, large-scale release of hydrogen, which is an important addition to the other planned activities in the port. These activities include the development of the regional and national hydrogen backbone as well as various planned projects for hydrogen production in the North Sea Canal Area.  

The first plants for delivery of hydrogen to local off-takers is expected to be in operation before 2028, with the potential of further upscale. In total, the handled LOHC volumes will be at least 1 million tons per annum (MTPA).

Ramon Ernst, managing director at Evos says: ‘We are very excited about this next step. We have been building and supporting the H2A platform from the beginning, working with our partners on green hydrogen imports via the port of Amsterdam. We see a promising future in LOHC technology as it is intrinsically safe and fits with the port’s existing logistic infrastructure.’ 

‘The build-up of LOHC-based supply chains will also facilitate the transport of hydrogen to the hinterland and to Germany. Besides the development of import projects, H2A will also provide political and regulatory support to technology companies and project developers at the location, as well as structured access to funding,’ adds Daniel Teichmann, founder and CEO at Hydrogenious LOHC. 

‘We are thrilled about this new, key step, which will strengthen the position of the Port of Amsterdam as a hydrogen hub, for import, storage, trans-shipment and distribution to the wider hinterland,’ says Koen Overtoom, CEO at Port of Amsterdam.
