The goal is that by 2024 10-15 river ships tank can operate on the Reno with hydrogen propulsion

The Netherlands and the German Land of Rhineland North-Westphalia have signed a declaration purpose to ensure that the activities of transport on the route that crosses the respective territories that makes part of the Reno-Alpes Corridor, one of the nine corridors of the network Europe's TRANSPORT TEN-T which provides for the expansion of transport transport systems on the Rotterdam-Genova axis, are being implemented hydrogen as fuel.

The initiative, which the Netherlands has joined with the signing of the representatives of the provinces of the South Netherlands and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Management is called RH2INE (Rhine Hydrogen Integration Network of Excellence) and will initially focus on hydrogen production sites along the course of the Rhine River between Rotterdam and Cologne ten to 15 tankers can operate with propulsion hydrogen powered. The initiative includes the Hy3 project focused on generating green hydrogen by turbines offshore wind farms, which includes the completion of a offshore wind farm feasibility by the end of this year.

The declaration of intent was signed on Wednesday Combined Energy in Arnhem, Netherlands, on the occasion of Combined Energy Conference. In addition to the Netherlands and the Land of Rhineland North-Westphalia, have signed up to the initiative Port Authority Rotterdam and Duisburg and companies RhineCargo, BCTN, EICB, Nouryon, Covestro, Air Products, Future Proof Shipping, HTS Group, NPRC, AirLiquide and Koedood.

The project will be presented European Union in order to raise funds to carry out further research.

"We believe that," commented the Deputy Governor of the Netherlands Southern, Floor Vermeulen -- that river transport along the Reno offers a great opportunity to successfully introduce green hydrogen as a viable fuel for the entire industry Shipping. Obviously all parties involved will be watching to this scenario from different perspectives given their different realities, visions and experiences.
