Chiyoda participates in a hydrogen marine transportation project
The European Commission has set a goal of importing 10 million tons of hydrogen across Europe by 2030.
Chiyoda Corporation has announced that it is participating in a hydrogen marine transportation project (LHyTS project) to export hydrogen from Scotland to Rotterdam.
The LHyTS project aims to demonstrate an industrial-scale international hydrogen supply chain, utilizing MCH as the liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC), selected following comparative examination of alternative hydrogen carriers in a previous phase.
The LHyTS project is run by a diverse international consortium of 10 companies and governments, including the Net Zero Technology Centre, ERM, Axens, EnQuest, Koole Terminals, Port Authority of Rotterdam, the Scottish Government, Shetland Islands Council, Storegga and Chiyoda. The partners will conduct feasibility studies for construction of a pilot project as a forerunner to developing the hydrogen chain from Scotland to Rotterdam.
The Scottish government's hydrogen strategy includes the production of 5 GW (approximately 0.45 million tons/year) of low-carbon hydrogen by 2030 and 25 GW (approximately 2.25 million tons/year) by 2045, and the investigation of options to export hydrogen to the rest of UK and Europe.
The European Commission has set a goal of importing 10 million tons of hydrogen across Europe by 2030. As a core energy port in Europe, the Port of Rotterdam has created a goal of becoming Europe's premier hydrogen hub, with extensive import, export and storage infrastructure, an established energy industry supply chain and pipeline connections to industrial clusters in Northwest Europe.
