HHLA receives US$2.7 million funding for hydrogen project

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will fund three hydrogen projects as part of the implementation of the National Hydrogen Strategy in order to facilitate Germany’s transition into a hydrogen economy over a period of four years.

The Hamburg-based logistics and transportation company Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) is one of the more than 240 partners from the scientific and industrial sectors that are collaborating on the key hydrogen projects and will receive an additional US$2.7 million to test new transportation technologies for Green Hydrogen.

The three projects are the serial manufacture of large-scale water electrolysers (H2Giga), the offshore production of hydrogen and secondary products (H2Mare) and technologies for the transportation of hydrogen (TransHyDE).

Georg Böttner, responsible for HHLA’s hydrogen project explained that "An important question in the development of hydrogen technology is the widespread availability of this energy source and HHLA is searching too for the best answers to this question, which is why we are involved in the key TransHyDE project."

Activities of the HHLA hydrogen strategy

As Hydrogen is rarely used at the same location where it is manufactured, TransHyDE is trying to solve this problem and to develop a holistic approach to the production, transportation and use of hydrogen, according to a statement.

Last but not least, HHLA along with other partners are examining the various transport options and are involved in the TransHyDE projects "Mukran" and "Helgoland" on the islands of Rügen and Heligoland, respectively, where the transportation of hydrogen in high-pressure containers as well as via LOHCs (liquid organic hydrogen carriers) are being tested.
