Canada-headed EverWind Fuels LLC, a leading North American developer of a green fuels hub centered in Atlantic Canada, has announced cooperation with the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands to advance the green hydrogen supply chain.

The Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest seaport and is the manager, operator, and developer of the Rotterdam port and industrial areas.

Establishing successful green hydrogen projects requires establishing a global supply chain, and we are excited to work with the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest seaport to support this endeavor. 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, said Trent Vichie, Founder and CEO, EverWind Fuels.

Major European energy port

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 cooperation, EverWind’s green hydrogen production from its projects in Atlantic Canada will support the 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 fuel corridors.

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 be among the first volumes from North America to land in Europe, said Boudewijn Siemons, CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority.

FEED for Phase 1 completed

EverWind Fuels 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.

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, said the Honourable Tim Houston, Premier of Nova Scotia.
