Air Products and Mabanaft, through a joint development agreement, its subsidiary Oiltanking Deutschland, have announced their intention to build Germany’s first large-scale, green energy import terminal in the Port of Hamburg.
The joint development agreement aims to develop green ammonia import and distribution infrastructure in the Port of Hamburg. The project hopes to provide hydrogen to Germany in 2026, with the planned import terminal to be located at Mabanaft’s existing tank terminal port. The location is expected to offer strategic access to green ammonia from large-scale green hydrogen production facilities operated by Air Products and its partners across the globe.
‘As the world’s largest producer of hydrogen, Air Products is in an excellent position to meet demand and has committed billions of dollars to produce renewable energy at locations around the world. Air Products fully appreciates the support and visionary leadership of the German government, further demonstrated by the presence of Dr. Habeck, the Port of Hamburg, and other members of regional and local governments at today’s ceremony,’ says Seifi Ghasemi, CEO, president, and Air Products’ chairman.
