Netherlands signs hydrogen declaration with Oman at COP27

Netherlands signs hydrogen declaration with Oman at COP27

(Posted on 09/11/22)

At the COP27climate summit in Egypt, Netherlands Prime Minister Rutte has signed a declaration of intent with the government of Oman on hydrogen cooperation.

The aim is to set up import and export facilities for green hydrogen. This allows the Netherlands to work on accelerating the energy transition beyond its borders while at the same time creating opportunities to import part of this green hydrogen to make the Dutch industry and transport sector more sustainable.

The Port of Rotterdam Authority has close ties with Oman. For some 20 years, the Port Authority has had a joint venture with the government of Oman to develop and operate the port of Sohar in the north of the country.

The Port Authority is making efforts to set up import chains for hydrogen from countries where renewable energy can be generated at low cost and exported to Northwest Europe. These are mainly countries with plenty of space for generating renewable energy from solar and wind, such as Oman.

As the largest dry bulk port in Europe, the port of Rotterdam has all the facilities required for the storage and transhipment of dry bulk cargo.

Due to its ideal location and its unparalleled depth, even the largest dry bulk carriers can be accommodated by the port of Rotterdam without any impediments such as locks or tides. Furthermore, Rotterdam offers a broad selection of service providers for any type of dry bulk cargo, ranging from iron ore to grains to biomass and industrial minerals.
