CORRECTED: Everwind Fuels Works Together With Port Of Rotterdam, Europe’S Largest Seaport To Advance Green Hydrogen Supply Chain

(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) port of Rotterdam-EverWind co-operation recognizes EverWind as a leading green hydrogen project globally

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EverWind Fuels ("EverWind"), a leading North American developer of a green fuels hub centered in Atlantic Canada, was joined today by officials from Province of Nova Scotia in announcing 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 fuels 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.


“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 decarbonize carbon-intensive processes domestically and abroad.”

Trent Vichie
Founder and CEO, EverWind Fuels

"Nova Scotia is poised to be a world leader in the production of green hydrogen. Our Government is excited to host EverWind's Point Tupper project which will bring green jobs and a clean, sustainable future for Nova Scotians. Green hydrogen leadership will help us and our global partners develop our green economies and fight climate change.”

The Honourable Tim Houston,
Premier of Nova Scotia

"As Europe's leading energy hub we recognize the significance of green hydrogen for the decarbonization 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.”

Boudewijn Siemons,
CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority
