Port of Amsterdam and duisport partner on energy transition projects

Port of Amsterdam and duisport will jointly develop their hydrogen value chain and their hinterland network, expanding cooperation.

Markus Bangen, CEO of duisport, and Koen Overtoom, CEO of Port of Amsterdam, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to underscore the commitment of their organisations to these common goals.

The two ports are connected directly via the Rhine River and through multiple land routes.

Their existing long-term partnership is reflected in their joint venture, Hafen Duisburg / Amsterdam Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH, and will now enter a new phase.

"Both ports recognise the great value of joining forces in developing new corridors for sustainable energy carriers, with the aim of decarbonisation of international supply chains. This partnership strengthens our strategic initiatives, aimed at taking the lead in facilitating the energy transition, and complements our strong collaborations with our trusted partners," commented Overtoom.

The two partners aim to be at the forefront of the transition to sustainable and renewable energy sources.

Therefore, the two European ports will jointly explore the possibilities of many hydrogen transfer technologies aiming to create an international hydrogen supply chain on a commercial scale.

Port of Amsterdam is part of the H2A consortium, which aims to import one million tonnes of green hydrogen into the Dutch port and includes many key players in the hydrogen industry.

The H2A project forms a unique platform that can now be connected to duisport, making it possible to create an end-to-end value chain for green hydrogen carriers between the two ports.

"By expanding our trusting partnership with the Port of Amsterdam, we are sending an important signal across national borders: only together will we be able to overcome global challenges such as the energy transition," Bangen said.

"I am therefore looking forward to further close cooperation in order to rapidly advance the development of a Europe-wide hydrogen network and to strengthen our function as central logistics hubs for Europe," added the boss of the German port.

Additionally, the two ports will set up joint commercial projects to further develop their inland networks.
