Hydrogen strategy announced at Port of Antwerp-Bruges

Hydrogen strategy announced at Port of Antwerp-Bruges
19 October 2022

The official inauguration took place with ministers, including Secretary of State for Strategic Investments Thomas Dermine, European representatives, and industry leaders. De Croo stated that: "Without the development of this technology, our industry would collapse, and we will lose the fight against global warming."

Thomas Dermine stated that seven projects with a total value of €500 million have already been approved to produce hydrogen as part of the government's Covid-19 recovery plan. The Federal Government also aims to "help 11 companies with international ambitions'' in hydrogen production.

Hydrogen and hydrogen carriers are transported to the European hinterland via various transport modes such as pipelines, rail and inland waterways. Good infrastructure, such as open-access hydrogen pipelines and terminals, are essential in this context. To this end, the port is working to expand terminal capacity for existing and new hydrogen carriers at both port sites. In addition, the development of a hydrogen market will be further facilitated by the development of a hydrogen pipeline network and with the development of a certification scheme and a market platform.
