EverWind Fuels and E.ON strengthen hydrogen ties
EverWind to secure the sale of green ammonia from EverWind’s Point Tupper facility.
EverWind Fuels Company and E.ON Hydrogen GmbH, signed an MoU to import green ammonia at scale to Germany beginning in 2025 from EverWind’s initial production facility in Point Tupper, Nova Scotia.
EverWind and E.ON intend to work towards an offtake agreement for up to 500k tonnes/year of green ammonia. Point Tupper is a multi-phase green hydrogen and ammonia production and export facility in advanced stages of development and is expected to reach commercial operation in early 2025, the first in Atlantic Canada.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, “The transformation of our industry continues. Therefore, I am pleased that E.ON and Uniper each have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the supply of green ammonia from 2025 on with the Canadian company EverWind Fuels. This is an important step not only to strengthen our bilateral economic relations but also for a future-oriented and sustainable energy supply.”
Premier Tim Houston said, “The development of EverWind’s Point Tupper site is incredibly encouraging as a regional green hydrogen hub for Eastern Canada, including new green hydrogen and ammonia production facilities.”
Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, underlined Canada’s important role in the global energy transition, said, “Canada has enormous potential as a reliable supplier of energy in a net-zero world. Our government is committed to working with our allies to ensure Canadian resources ensure clean energy security at home and around the world.”
Trent Vichie, CEO of EverWind Fuels, said, “We are on track to be the first green ammonia producer in Atlantic Canada, and the first to deliver on Canada’s commitment to becoming a global green fuels leader”.
Patrick Lammers, COO Costumer Solutions at E.ON SE, said, “We will create more energy security by cooperation between societies which share the same values and stand for democracy, the rule of law and a social market economy. This step is more urgent than ever. “
Gabriël Clemens, CEO of E.ON’s Green Gas division, added, “The ‘Mittelstand’ is what makes the German economy a success. Together with the power of EverWind, we target to supply especially small and medium-sized companies – hidden champions with hundreds of thousands of jobs.”
