Uniper unveils plans for major hydrogen hub at Wilhelmshaven

Ammonia import terminal to plug Germany’s looming hydrogen supply gap

Uniper has unveiled proposals to develop a hydrogen hub at the northern German port of Wilhelmshaven with capacity to supply 10pc of the country’s demand for the gas in 2030. Commissioning of the new terminal—which would include ammonia import and conversion facilities as well as onsite hydrogen production—is planned for the second half of this decade, depending on national import demand and export opportunities, says Dusseldorf-based Uniper, which is majority owned by Finland’s Fortum. The move comes after Uniper shelved plans for a floating LNG import terminal at Wilhelmshaven following a market test in October that failed to attract adequate interest in booking long-term regasification
