Charbone and Superior Propane extend cooperation on green hydrogen
Manitoba represents a great market for green hydrogen production as Manitoba’s electricity network is majorly based on available and reliable hydroelectric production.
Superior Propane (a division of Superior Plus LP) to supply, market, sell and distribute green hydrogen to commercial and industrial customers from Charbone Hydrogen’s newly proposed green hydrogen facility in the Winnipeg area, Manitoba, Canada.
This option was exercised by Superior Propane under the existing supply agreement executed by the Parties in May 2022 for the supply, marketing, sale and distribution of green hydrogen from the Charbone’s Sorel-Tracy, Québec, Canada facility.
Charbone and Superior Propane are founding members of the Manitoba Green Hydrogen Roundtable with municipal, provincial, and local stakeholders to promote the deployment and the uses of green hydrogen in Manitoba.
Superior Propane has a large network of distribution centres in Canada and aims to continue growth in other Canadian markets with Superior Propane’s professional and committed sales and operations teams across Canada and maybe south of the border as well.
Dave B. Gagnon, Chairman and CEO of Charbone, said, “Charbone is delighted that its main sales & distribution partner has decided to execute its option of continuing to support Charbone in its development of modular and scalable green hydrogen production in our first western Canada project.”
Rick Carron, President of Superior Propane, said, “The green hydrogen produced at the Selkirk facility will allow us to sell cost-effective green energy to customers in Manitoba, furthering our strategy to offer alternative energy products to our customers using our existing distribution network.”
