Shell and Uniper to collaborate on hydrogen initiatives in Europe

Düsseldorf, July 7 - Neftegaz.RU. Anglo-Dutch Shell and German Uniper have signed a MoU to drive forward the development of a hydrogen economy in Europe .
The duo intend to find joint opportunities to couple industrial and mobility demand with hydrogen supply, production and storage.

The groups want to promote joint projects in Germany, the Netherlands and other European countries and hope for synergies, especially when it comes to infrastructure.
The transport of hydrogen from the ports of Rotterdam and Wilhelmshaven to North Rhine-Westphalia is to be the focus of the announced cooperation.

Axel Wietfeld, CEO of Uniper Hydrogen, said:
  • Our mission is to connect Uniper’s large scale hydrogen projects - e.g. in the Netherlands and in Northern Germany - with industrial customers to enable a decarbonisation of our economy
  • By way of hydrogen Uniper provides a CO2-free solution of how to transport the abundant renewable electricity from coastal regions and from offshore wind farms to the inland
Among the projects considered will be Shell’s Rheinland transformation where Shell recently opened a 10 MW PEM electrolyser, the largest of its kind in Europe, and is working with partners to expand the capacity to 100 MW.

Paul Bogers, VP Shell Hydrogen, said:
  • We’re excited to be working with Uniper to explore the opportunities to help deliver the required infrastructure to make a hydrogen economy a reality
  • Collaborations like this one are necessary to accelerate the transition to hydrogen usage in both transport and industry and Shell is excited to be playing our part in driving this change
The MoU reflects Shell’s Powering Progress strategy and target to reach net zero emissions by 2050 and will support Uniper’s ambition to become carbon-neutral in Europe by 2035.
