Green Ammonia/Hydrogen Fuel Terminal Planed for Rotterdam (Alternative Fuels, Int'l. Report)
Green Amonia, Hydrogen
Date: 2022-04-13
Energy infrastructure specialist Gasunie, HES International (HES) and international tank storage specialist Vopak report they are partnering to develop an import terminal in Rotterdam for green ammonia as a hydrogen carrier. The terminal will operate on the Maasvlakte under the name ACE Terminal and is expected to be operational from 2026.

Basic design work is expected to begin this quarter and the eventual investment decision will be taken based on elements including customer contracts and the availability of the necessary permits.

According to the developers, the demand for green hydrogen in the energy and transportation the energy sector in the Netherlands and Germany is growing and an import terminal for green ammonia will be a vital part of a hydrogen infrastructure designed to meet the emerging needs.

Ghlin, Belgium-based HES currently operates at a location in Maasvlakte with quayside capacity and direct access from the sea. Gasunie also has existing infrastructure of storage tanks and a system of pipelines. Vopak, with six ammonia terminals around the world, has extensive experience in the safe storage of ammonia.

E.ON Touts H2.Ruhr Green Hydrogen Project (Int'l. Report)
E.ON, Enel, Iberdrola, ABB
Date: 2021-10-27
Essen, Germany-headquartered E.ON SE reports it is cooperating with Enel, Iberdrola, ABB and SAP on "H2.Ruhr" and to build an industrial-scale green hydrogen value chain as to serve the European market. The firms will leverage their competitive advantage in renewable production to supply green hydrogen and green ammonia to industrial hubs in central and northern Europe -- with a special focus on the German Ruhr region.

H2.Ruhr includes the construction of a regional hydrogen pipeline infrastructure including direct connection to a broad spectrum of consumers in the Ruhr area and the development of a terminal to receive, store and distribute roughly 80,000 tpy green ammonia and green hydrogen. H2.Ruhr will also test new innovative technologies at a large-scale, such as the ammonia cracking technology, electrolysis, emission-free transport (via hydrogen or ammonia powered vessels or trucks), as well as the long-distance transport of electricity dedicated for hydrogen production.

NextChem, MET Development Plan Bioethanol, Green Ammonia Projects (Ind. Report)
NextChem, GranBio,Maire Tecnimont
Date: 2021-07-02
NextChem and MET Development have reached an agreement with FerSam Uruguay (a private holding company) to develop projects for the production of green ammonia and bioethanol in Latin America.

Under the agreement, Maire Tecnimont Group's subsidiaries and FerSam will undertake feasibility studies for jointly producing green ammonia and developing a second-generation bioethanol project based on Sao Paulo, Brazil-based GranBio's 2G Ethanol technology to which NextChem acquired exclusive worldwide rights in 2020.

Maire Tecnimont Group will contribute technological and know-how in terms of project development, design and engineering and execution to the partnership.

Haldor Topsoe, Aquamarine Plan German Green Ammonia Plant (Int'l.)
Haldor Topsoe
Date: 2021-03-19
Danish clean fuels provider Haldor Topsoe and private equity firm Aquamarine have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to build a green ammonia facility in northern Germany close to existing offshore wind farms.

The facility is planned to include a 100 MW solid oxide electrolyzer cell (SOEC) electrolysis unit to produce green hydrogen to be converted into green ammonia for use as a green marine fuel or fertilizer. The plant is expected to be operational by 2024. (Source: Haldor Topsoe, PR, Splash247, 18 Mar., 2021) Contact: Haldor Topsoe, Roeland Baan, CEO, Ulrik Frohlke, Media, +45 27 77 99 68,,

Yara, Orsted Planning Dutch Green Ammonia Production (Int'l. Report)
Date: 2020-10-05
Danish utility Orsted and Norwegian fertiliser firm Yara have joined forces in developing a project aiming at replacing fossil hydrogen with renewable hydrogen in the production of "green" ammonia at Yara's plant in the Dutch province of Zeeland. The renewable hydrogen would generate around 75,000 tpy of green ammonia.

Subject to public co-funding and regulatory approvals, the project could be operational in 2024/2025. Green ammonia is emerging as a promising decarbonised maritime shipping fuel, according to a release. (Source: Orsted, Yara, Splash 247, 5 Oct., 2020) Contact: Orsted,
