EverWind Fuels works together with Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest seaport, to advance green hydrogen supply chain

EverWind Fuels, a leading North American developer of a green fuels, centred in Atlantic Canada, was joined by officials from Province of Nova Scotia in announcing a co-operation with the Port of Rotterdam to advance the green hydrogen supply chain.

Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest seaport and is the manager, operator and developer of the Rotterdam port and industrial areas. The Port of Rotterdam is an important energy port for Northwest Europe and a key distribution channel to Germany’s industrial heartland, the Ruhr area.

With this co-operation, EverWind’s green hydrogen production from its projects in Atlantic Canada will support Port of Rotterdam’s establishment of an international hub for hydrogen production, import, application and transport to other countries in Northwest Europe.

Three times as much energy is now transported via Rotterdam than is consumed in the whole of the Netherlands, with expectations to import eighteen million tonnes of hydrogen via Rotterdam in 2050. There are several advanced developments in the Port of Rotterdam to receive green ammonia as early as 2026, with ammonia and hydrogen users within the Port of Rotterdam complex and connected to its various green fuel’s corridors.

EverWind recently completed front-end engineering design (FEED), which included over 110,000 hours of engineering, marking a major milestone in the development of its project and represents the first announced completion of FEED for a large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility in North America.

Founder and CEO of Everwind Fuels Trent Vichie said: “Establishing successful green hydrogen projects requires establishing a global supply chain and we are excited to work with Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest seaport, to support this endeavour. We’re confident that our projects in Atlantic Canada will produce the greenest, most cost-competitive green hydrogen in North America to decarbonise carbon-intensive processes domestically and abroad.”

CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority Boudewijn Siemons said: “As Europe’s leading energy hub we recognise the significance of green hydrogen for the decarbonisation of the European industry and we are establishing infrastructure, facilities and cooperations that will help deliver on this. EverWind supports our efforts for the import of green hydrogen by establishing a significant project for large-scale green hydrogen production. We expect EverWind’s green hydrogen and green ammonia production will to be among the first volumes from North America to land in Europe.”
