During his Latin America tour last August, Tschentscher signed agreements in three countries. Hamburg and Chile jointly want to set up the neces- sary infrastructure, technologies and logistics chains for an efficient green hydrogen industry. Hamburg und Chilean port representatives are in
regular contact over this. With Uruguay too, more intensive port cooperation is being sought. The aim is to create
the necessary infrastructure
for import/export of green hy-
drogen. Port of Hamburg Mar-
keting and the port authority in
Montevideo have reached an ap-
propriate agreement. In Argentina too,
Tschentscher sealed a deal with govern-
ment representatives for future trade and logis- tics-oriented collaboration over hydrogen. There are further agreements with Scotland, Groningen in the Netherlands, in Canada with the Province of New- foundland & Labrador with the Port of Halifax through a memorandum of understanding with HPA.
Industry is gaining its first experience with ammonia imports via the Port of Hamburg. For the copper man- ufacturer Aurubis, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company – ADNOC, from the United Arab Emirates, delivered an ammonia container to HHLA Container Terminal Alten- werder in September. The contents were destined for test runs of climate-neutral production of copper wire and to try out setting up a hydrogen supply chain. A
further project followed involving HHLA, AD- NOC and STEAG, the electricity genera- tor, for a power station near Leipzig. “Here it was very much a ques- tion of involving and testing rail as a mode of transport for the distribution of energy into Hamburg’s hinterland,” ex- plained HHLA spokeswoman Karolin Hamann. HHLA is cur- rently working on other projects in- volving the import and distribution of hy- drogen. As the future ‘Green Hydrogen Hub’ for Germany and Europe, the port will be the landing point for hydrogen imports via pipeline and vessel, being de- veloped into a hydrogen distribution centre. Large quantities of imported hydrogen are expected to be re- quired in the adjacent port. Industrial operations locat-
