Port of Rotterdam supports green hydrogen project at Maasvlakte

Uniper has selected Plug Power Inc. to design the electrolyser technology for Uniper’s Maasvlakte site at the port of Rotterdam. At the Maasvlakte Energy Hub, Uniper plans to commission 100 MW of Plug electrolysis capacity to produce green hydrogen by 2026, expanding that capacity to 500 MW by 2030 at the latest.

According to the statement, the Rotterdam port area, which encompasses Maasvlakte, is the Netherlands' biggest carbon-emitting industrial centre.

“As a port authority we support, stimulate and help companies in Rotterdam to reach the Paris climate treaty goals in multiple ways, including getting infrastructure like a hydrogen pipeline network in place in time,” stated Allard Castelein, CEO of Port of Rotterdam.

The region released 23,4 million tonnes of CO2 in 2021. Decarbonising this region alone would make a major contribution to the Dutch general goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.

Under the terms of the deal, Plug will supply ten prefabricated PEM (proton exchange membrane) electrolyzer arrays for Uniper's main project, H2Maasvlakte.
