Clean energy company Masdar, the Port of Amsterdam, sustainable aviation company SkyNRG, bulk storage company Evos Amsterdam and independent oil and gas company Zenith Energy have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). This is to explore the development of a green hydrogen supply chain between Abu Dhabi and Amsterdam to support Dutch and European energy markets.

The exported green hydrogen will be delivered to key European sectors – sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), steelmaking, and bunkering for shipping, and will also be supplied to new, emerging European offtakers, via pipeline, truck and barge. Together, the parties will explore several hydrogen transportation methods, with a focus on liquid organic hydrogen carriers and liquid hydrogen.

Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE minister of industry and advanced technology and chairman of Masdar, says: ‘This agreement builds upon the existing relationship between the UAE and the Netherlands and demonstrates our mutual commitment to exploring low and zero-carbon energy solutions. The UAE aims to play a central role in the emerging green hydrogen economy and this partnership with the Port of Amsterdam and associated players in the green hydrogen space would help position Abu Dhabi as a key hub for green hydrogen development.’

Wopke Hoekstra, minister of foreign affairs for the Netherlands, says: ‘The Netherlands is keen on developing green hydrogen corridors with major future exporting countries like the UAE. Our country is well positioned to become a hydrogen hub for the Northwestern European market. I welcome the collaboration between Dutch and UAE businesses in the field of hydrogen and look forward to further intensifying the cooperation between our two countries.’

‘We are very pleased with this new collaboration. SkyNRG, Evos and Zenith Energy are driving forces behind the hydrogen developments in the port of Amsterdam and they are key in our goal of importing at least one million tonnes of green hydrogen annually. Joining forces with a party as renowned as Masdar, will bring this goal that much closer to realisation. Together, we can bring the envisioned Abu Dhabi-Amsterdam connection to fruition,’ adds Koen Overtoom, CEO, Port of Amsterdam.
