Funding for HHLA's Hydrogen Project

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will approve substantial amounts of funding for three hydrogen flagship projects in order to implement the national hydrogen strategy. They are intended to facilitate Germany's entry into a hydrogen economy over a period of four years. This involves the series production of large-scale water electrolysers (H2Giga), the production of hydrogen and secondary products on the high seas (H2Mare) and technologies for the transport of hydrogen (TransHyDE).

Over 240 partners from science and industry work together in the hydrogen lead projects. Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) is one of these partners and can now use an additional 2.3 million euros to test new transport technologies for green hydrogen. "An important question in the development of hydrogen technology is the widespread availability of this energy source," explains Dr. Georg Bottner, who is responsible for the HHLA hydrogen project. "HHLA is also looking for the best answers to this question, which is why we are participating in the TransHyDE lead project."

Hydrogen is only rarely used where it is produced. TransHyDE is dedicated to this problem and wants to develop a comprehensive approach to the generation, transport and use of hydrogen. Together with other partners, HHLA is investigating the various transport options and is involved in the TransHyDE projects "Mukran" on Rügen and "Helgoland" on the island of the same name, in which hydrogen is transported in high-pressure containers and via the carrier medium LOHC (liquid organic hydrogen carriers) is tested.
