North Sea energy project gets expanded footprint

Vision Hydrogen Corporation is expanding its planned green energy hub in the Netherlands.

The company recently announced it has secured an additional 2.1 hectares of industrial lands adjoining to its existing 14.3-hectaregreen energy hub development in the North Sea Port of Vlissingen, the Netherlands.

VisionH2, through its wholly owned subsidiary Evolution Terminals BV, is pioneering a green energy hub capable of receiving seagoing vessels, barges, and coasters. Vlissingen is at the mouth of the Westerschelde estuary in the Netherlands, and the liquid-bulk storage terminal will be served by a dedicated deep-water jetty, rail and truck loading infrastructure that will enable direct access to purpose-built storage and handling facilities with a core focus on hydrogen carriers including ammonia, methanol, and liquid organics.

The expansion of the facility’s land assets to 16.4 hectares will allow the integration of Phase 2 infrastructure for back-cracking green ammonia to hydrogen to facilitate the import and supply of clean hydrogen to Europe.

VisionH2’s green energy hub is in the permitting phase, with the company targeting the award of all necessary construction and environmental permits for Phase 1 by Q1 2023.

VisionH2 is a renewable energy company developing carbon reduced hydrogen solutions for the commercial, industrial and transportation sectors. VisionH2 is committed to providing the lowest carbon solution with the highest yield hydrogen production, storage and distribution services for the European renewable economy and supply chain. It is a portfolio company of First Finance, a private equity investment group.
