Hyphen Hydrogen Energy has signed a letter of intent (LoI) with Koole Terminals covering the proposed import of green ammonia into north-western Europe from Namibia
Hyphen is planning to supply its customers using the import terminal being developed by Koole Terminals, located in the Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands. Over the past year, Hyphen has signed memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with a number of potential European customers, targeting the supply of up to 750,000 tonnes of green ammonia annually.
Marco Raffinetti, CEO of Hyphen Hydrogen Energy, commented, “This agreement represents another key milestone in our ambition of enabling Namibia’s rise as a global leader in green hydrogen production. The Port of Rotterdam is a critical hub servicing north-western Europe and has moved rapidly to support the establishment of new green hydrogen import capacity to facilitate this regions energy transition. Koole Terminals is one of the most advanced import terminals under development and we look forward to working with them to meet first supply of ammonia from our project into Europe by early 2028.”
John Kraakman, CEO of Koole Terminals, added, “We are pleased to work with Hyphen to become a customer of our planned Port of Rotterdam import terminal for ammonia. This cooperation will allow us to further scale-up the multi-million tonne facility. Koole is an experienced independent operator of twenty-one liquid bulk terminals across seven countries, already handling and storing ammonia. With our current and planned infrastructure, terminals, modalities, and integrated solutions, we play a leading role in facilitating the energy transition.”
Hyphen is targeting annual production of one million tonnes of green ammonia to come on-line by the end of 2027, expanding to two million tonnes of green ammonia by 2029.
