Stolthaven Terminals’ plan to explore a new green hydrogen storage terminal in Pecém Port, Brazil has received an extra boost with the governments of Ceará State, Brazil and the Netherlands officially launching a green hydrogen corridor between Pecém and Rotterdam.
The corridor will create a direct transportation route between the two locations.
Last year, Stolthaven Terminals signed an MoU with the Pecém Industrial and Port Complex – a joint venture formed by the Ceará State Government and the Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands – to investigate a new storage terminal providing storage and handling services for green hydrogen and associated products.
Stolthaven Terminals has subsequently signed a partnership agreement with Global Energy Services (GES) to jointly develop the project using each party’s expertise. They are now working together to progress this project.
Pecém is seen as one of the ports with the greatest potential for generating green hydrogen and the Port of Rotterdam, considered the main gateway to all of Europe, is preparing to operate as the green hydrogen hub for the region.
