Port of Amsterdam Signs Key Agreements to Boost Green Hydrogen Corridor

The Port of Amsterdam has inked two pivotal agreements aimed at advancing the development of a green hydrogen corridor between the Spanish port of Bilbao and Amsterdam. The agreements mark a milestone in international collaboration for the production and distribution of green hydrogen and its derivatives.

During a formal ceremony witnessed by His Excellency Minister Rob Jetten, the partners involved sealed the deals that signify a strategic shift towards cleaner energy alternatives. The first agreement focuses on conducting a comprehensive feasibility study to assess the practicality and viability of establishing a liquid hydrogen supply chain.

The second agreement, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), involves key stakeholders including KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Petronor, S.A. / Repsol, and the Port of Amsterdam. This MoU outlines intentions to explore opportunities for the production of e-Sustainable Aviation Fuel (e-SAF) in Bilbao, with KLM identified as a potential off-taker. This move aligns with the aviation industry’s growing commitment to reducing carbon emissions and transitioning towards sustainable fuel sources.


In addition to these agreements, Evos Amsterdam has also entered into an MoU with CEPSA to delve into the possibility of exporting hydrogen from the southern region of Spain to Amsterdam. This collaboration signifies a concerted effort to expand the reach of green hydrogen and establish robust international supply chains.

These strategic alliances underscore the commitment of all parties involved to drive innovation and sustainability in the maritime and logistics sectors. By leveraging each other’s expertise and resources, the aim is to create a seamless and efficient green hydrogen corridor that facilitates the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Commenting on the significance of these agreements, representatives from the Port of Amsterdam emphasized the importance of collaboration in tackling global challenges such as climate change. They highlighted the potential of green hydrogen as a versatile and eco-friendly energy carrier that can play a pivotal role in decarbonizing various industries, including aviation and maritime transportation.

As the world increasingly shifts towards renewable energy sources, initiatives like the green hydrogen corridor between Bilbao and Amsterdam serve as shining examples of international cooperation towards a sustainable future.
