Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Shell Global Solutions International BV have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on developing low-carbon and highly efficient energy solutions that support the energy transition.
The agreement will focus on projects that produce green hydrogen for industrial applications at Shell and its customers, as well as enhancing collaboration in the areas of biofuels and circular chemistry. Siemens and Shell will create solutions that increase energy efficiency and generate sustainable power and the production, distribution, and application of green hydrogen.
‘Siemens is committed to decoupling electrification from fossil fuel resources. Partnerships are key to driving this effort and transitioning towards sustainable energy supplies.’ says Stephan May, CEO of electrification and automation at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
‘Siemens’ broad range of expertise in electrification and automation, together with Shell’s engineering and project delivery capability and ambition in the energy transition will prove to be a powerful combination.’ says Graham Henley, senior VP engineering and project capability at Shell.
The MoU stems from this relationship and from working together on several projects produce hydrogen using electricity generated by wind turbines in the North Sea.
