Hydrogen transmission

Hydrogen infrastructure for Belgium

Action speaks louder than words. In our core business of gas infrastructure, we are pressing ahead to reconfigure our assets in Belgium to help achieve climate neutrality in 2050.

Based on our experience with natural gas, we are joining forces with industry and our other stakeholders to develop as from 2025 our infrastructure into 3 complementary systems for transporting:

  • methane (in which carbon-neutral biomethane and synthetic methane increasingly will replace quantities of natural gas),
  • hydrogen and
  • carbon

As we make the gas system accommodate carbon-neutral energy carriers and the circular use of captured carbon, we unlock new solutions for the industry in its efforts to achieve sustainable recovery and growth.

Hydrogen and CO2 demand and supply levels in specific clusters need to be matched. Via mutual exchanges between different interested parties (suppliers and offtakers) several promising infrastructure proposals are launched.

Hydrogen infrastructure proposals

Following the Request For Information and the Matchmaking phase, the market shows a mature need for an open access H2 infrastructure in different areas.


More info on our hydrogen infrastructure proposals

Please also still feel free to complete the Request For Information if you wouldn’t have done so far or if your internal process is still ongoing.

We will be integrating your responses on a rolling basis as they continue to come in and keep finetuning our infrastructure mapping.

Your contribution is essential: we are currently conducting a market consultation to shape the hydrogen infrastructure in Belgium.

Hydrogen transmission projects

  • Hydrogen: Preparing to build the network


    The Information Memorandum includes information on the transport of hydrogen as a low-carbon energy carrier. It is linked to infrastructure proposals developed in response to market interest and the match between hydrogen supply and demand in specific areas, between these areas and even across national borders.

  • H₂ Highway Zeebrugge - Brussels

    Natural gas and biomethaneHydrogen

    We are making our infrastructure fully ready to carry hydrogen and CO2, as part of our aim to be the essential partner for speeding up the energy transition. This mission is getting under way with the construction of the H2 Highway between Zeebrugge and Brussels. The pipeline is being laid in two phases: the first section between Desteldonk (near Ghent) and Opwijk (near Brussels) by the end of 2023 and the second connecting section between Zeebrugge and Desteldonk by 2026.

  • European Hydrogen Backbone


    Together with more than 30 other energy infrastructure companies, Fluxys is helping to build hydrogen corridors in Europe to accelerate the decarbonisation of the industry.
