HOPA looks to Atura Power for green hydrogen

HOPA looks to Atura Power for green hydrogen

(Posted on 11/04/23)

Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA) has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Atura Power to acquire green hydrogen as part of its commitment to supporting the growth of clean energy and reducing its carbon footprint. 

HOPA is the largest Port on the Great Lakes, operating multi-modal transportation facilities in Hamilton, Oshawa and Niagara. HOPA has been investigating the use of green hydrogen to decarbonize its operations and that of its customers. The purchase of hydrogen from Atura Power would support these goals by providing a reliable and sustainable source of fuel across the port network.

"HOPA Ports is committed to being a leader in sustainability and reducing our environmental impact," says Ian Hamilton, President and Chief Executive Officer of HOPA Ports. "We are eager to explore the potential of using hydrogen to power our operations and are proud to support the growth of renewable energy in Ontario."

When complete, Atura Power’s Niagara Hydrogen Centre (NHC) will be Ontario’s largest green hydrogen facility, using a 20-megawatt electrolyser system to support the development of Ontario’s hydrogen economy. It is expected to be operational in 2024.

“Atura Power is uniquely positioned to lead low-carbon hydrogen production and help decarbonize Ontario’s broader economy,” says Shelley Babin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Atura Power. “We look forward to working with partners like the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority, who are leading the marine industry towards environmental excellence.”

Around the world, ports are playing an increasingly important role in decarbonizing transportation, industry and power generation. HOPA is well positioned to be a leader by supporting the growth of clean energy in Ontario and Canada.

As an integrated port network, the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA) offers port and marine assets in Hamilton, Oshawa and Niagara. An efficient, multimodal network on the Great Lakes, it supports Ontario industries and facilitates trade. By investing in high-quality infrastructure and prioritizing sustainability, HOPA helps build prosperous working waterfronts in Ontario communities. Overseeing more than 1,000 acres and more than 140 tenant companies, 40,000 Ontario jobs are connected to the cargo that passes through HOPA’s integrated ports.
