Fluxys hydrogen shares years of experience with Fluxys Belgium

As a 100% afilliate of Fluxys Belgium, Fluxys hydrogen can count on the expertise and capabilities of the Belgian transmission system operator over the past decades. Fluxys Belgium has extensive and long-standing experience in the development, construction and safe operation of pipeline infrastructure.

Since 2021, Fluxys Belgium has been preparing its infrastructure network for hydrogen transmission. Today, Fluxys hydrogen is ready to assume the task and offer an open-access network to the market and accelerate the transition to hydrogen.

Fluxys hydrogen fully supports the Federal hydrogen strategy

In accordance with the federal hydrogen strategy, Fluxys hydrogen will undertake the development and operation of a hydrogen pipeline network, which will be part of the "European Hydrogen Backbone". This will enable the necessary low-carbon energy to be transported both for the Belgian market and to neighbouring countries. These molecules are a necessary part of the energy mix, needed to decarbonise society in a cost-efficient manner and taking into account security of supply.
