Renewables now logo

A group of companies will work together on hydrogen projects in the northwest German city of Osnabrueck to build hydrogen filling stations and a pipeline network to supply a local steel maker and a copper producer.

Energy company EWE, copper producer KME Germany GmbH, filling station operator Q1 Energie AG, steel maker Georgsmarienhuette Holding GmbH and logistics network KNI last week signed a letter of intent on the partnership that aims to advance the green transformation of the region.

The partners are planning to build a hydrogen production plant and a pipeline network that will connect Georgsmarienhuette and KME. Hydrogen filling stations will be built at Q1 Energie’s sites.

Commenting on the alliance, EWE’s Tobias Moldenhauer stressed that without hydrogen there would be no energy transition, no climate neutrality, and no shift away from fossil fuels. The planned partnership combines the strengths and expertise of companies along the entire value chain, from the production of green hydrogen to transport and storage, to its application in industry and mobility, Moldenhauer explained.
