Vision Energy Corporation is pleased to provide a project development update on the company’s Green Energy Hub in the North Sea Port of Vlissingen, the Netherlands.
Vision Energy, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Evolution Terminals BV, is concluding the remaining requisite studies to support filing permit applications under the Dutch “WABO” process, targeting first submission by December 31, 2022.
The submission includes filing of an Environmental Permit (“Omgevingsvergunning Milieu”) followed by Construction Permit application for Phase 1 400,000 cubic meters (CBM) capacity (“Omgevingsvergunning Bouw”), of which the latter will be a phased submission with each phase designed according to the commercial storage requirements for the future planned expansion of capacity for green and low-carbon energy products at the Terminal. The Company is on schedule to file the detailed Environmental Impact Assessment known in the Netherlands as the “MER” or “Milieueffectrapport” before January 31, 2023, in close cooperation with the authorities and in compliance with the formal process.
A portfolio of detailed studies has been conducted and are now concluded by several experts and specialist Netherlands-based consultancy firms engaged by the Company (refer to earlier Company News Releases), to support the final permit applications. Studies have included Spatial Layout, Planning and Design, detailed Quantitative Risk Assessments and Safety Reporting, Acoustic and Noise Impact Assessments, Air Quality calculations, Water handling, Fire Safety and Pilot Navigation Simulations for the Jetty.
Evolution Terminals is in advanced development of its 16.4 hectare site in the North Sea Port of Vlissingen, the Netherlands, for the construction and delivery of Northwestern Europe’s first import, storage and handling terminal designed exclusively for hydrogen carriers, renewable energy products and low-carbon fuels. Phase 1 development plan investment is estimated at EUR €450 million for up to 400,000 CBM of storage for green and low-carbon products and fuels. The project will include investment in a new deep-water jetty, quay wall redevelopment, truck and rail loading facilities, and the Company is targeting FID towards the end of 2023.
