Chiyoda Corporation, Sembcorp Industries and Mitsubishi Corporation have signed an MoU regarding the commercialization of a hydrogen supply chain in Singapore utilizing SPERA Hydrogen (LOHC-MCH), Chiyoda’s proprietary technology for the safe and reliable storage and transportation of hydrogen.
In October 2021, the three parties signed a strategic MOU to explore the feasibility and implementation of a commercial-scale supply chain to deliver low-carbon hydrogen into Singapore, utilizing Chiyoda’s proven hydrogen storage and transportation technology “LOHC-MCH” (Project) and have progressed with specific discussions and considerations.
With the completion of the initial feasibility study, the three parties are advancing to a Pre-FEED2 study, laying the foundation for a final investment decision for the Project. The Project will leverage synergies with Sembcorp’s gas-fired power generation facilities located on Jurong Island. The Project will utilize a LOHC-MCH to transport low-carbon hydrogen from countries such as Australia or the Middle East to Singapore.
When operational in 2026, the Project is expected to be the single largest low-carbon hydrogen import project in Asia, with a capacity of approximately 60 kilotonnes per year. This is equivalent to generating about one million megawatt-hours of renewable energy, double the current output from existing renewable capacity in Singapore.
Through this partnership with Sembcorp and Mitsubishi, Chiyoda will be among the first to implement a competitive hydrogen supply chain utilizing “LOHC-MCH”, contributing to carbon-neutral initiatives in Singapore and other countries around the world.
