Hydrogen Bridges Across the North Sea Region

​​​​​​​About the Webinar

Through their proximity to renewable energy and potential for the production, storage and transportation of hydrogen, North Sea Ports will act as hydrogen bridges. The webinar 'Hydrogen Bridges Across the North Sea Region' explores these activities in greater detail and looks at the way in which ports will fulfil a key role in the energy transition to hydrogen in many parts of the North Sea Region.  It will also explore the need to export and import hydrogen across the Region.

The webinar is jointly organised by the Scottish Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA) and the North Sea Hydrogen Ports and Maritime Community (NS HyMaP.) It will begin with an overview from Nigel Holmes (SHFCA) and Jon Jordan (NS HyMaP.)   They will outline the importance of North Sea ports in the creation of regional hydrogen economies.

They will be followed by Jan Egbertsen from the Port of Amsterdam who will outline the work and future plans for the growth of the port and wider Amsterdam Region.

​​​​​​​Joanne Allday from the Port of Cromarty Firth will outlin
e the port''s Master Plan  and the hydrogen projects that are being developed under the North of Scotland Hydrogen Programme.  These include plans to produce green hydrogen and the identification of new end-users and export markets.

CMB TECH has recently opened a multi-modal refuelling station in Antwerp which includes the refuelling of maritime vessels in the port. Paul Turner will present this key project and also talk about other projects developed by CMB TECH in the maritime sector.
