Energy Transition

Vopak is developing new infrastructure solutions to actively contribute to the introduction of future vital products.

To actively contribute to the introduction of future vital products, we are focusing on new infrastructure solutions in the areas of low-carbon and renewable hydrogen (ammonia, liquid hydrogen, LOHC), CO2, sustainable feedstocks, and long duration energy storage. These future vital products are used all around us, such as sustainable transport fuels for airplanes, flow batteries for storing clean electricity, and hydrogen, which can be used to store and transport renewable energy. 

Our expertise and our presence in the main industrial clusters makes us well-equipped to actively contribute to the development of new supply chains for the energy and feedstocks of the future.

Our New Energy Strategy

Watch the video in which we explain our strategy and progress in accelerating towards new energies and sustainable feedstocks through four focus areas.

Hydrogen (ammonia, liquid hydrogen, LOHC)

Import/Export of Hydrogen

Vopak is exploring various opportunities, together with partners, to facilitate the export/import of green (liquefied) hydrogen, LOHC and ammonia from and to various locations worldwide.

Partnering with H-vision

Vopak is a partner in H-vision, a hydrogen consortium in the Port of Rotterdam. With this network, Rotterdam's industrial sector can make a swift and substantial contribution to the Dutch climate targets for 2030.

Pilot Hydrogen Import (LOHC)

Vopak and Hydrogenious are preparing a pilot project to transport liquid organic hydrogen (LOHC) from Germany to the Netherlands. The world’s largest project plant for storing hydrogen in LOHC is currently being built in Germany.

ACE Terminal

Together with partners, Vopak is developing an import terminal for green ammonia as a hydrogen carrier in the Port of Rotterdam named ACE Terminal.

Northern Green Crane
