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.
Solhyd and Fluxys are partnering to test the quality and composition of the produced hydrogen throughout the year. This will vary according to the seasons and time of day, as weather conditions change.
Fluxys, Advario Stolthaven Antwerp and Advario Gas Terminal have joined forces to study the feasibility of building an open-access green ammonia import terminal at the Port of Antwerp-Bruges. The plan is to offer the market a robust solution to its growing demands for importing and storing green energy and raw materials against a backdrop of ongoing decarbonisation.
GASCADE and Fluxys have applied to the European Commission for Project of Common Interest (PCI) status for the AquaDuctus project, marking a major step forward in their plans for an offshore pipeline for green hydrogen in the North Sea. The move by the two infrastructure operators highlights the project's importance for the hydrogen ramp-up.
In order to meet the challenge of the transition to a carbon-neutral society by 2050, we need to look beyond our own production of renewable energy generated domestically or offshore. The import of renewable energy plays an essential role in this respect. The study published today by the hydrogen import coalition – a collaboration between DEME, ENGIE, Exmar, Fluxys, Port of Antwerp, Port of Zeebrugge and WaterstofNet – concludes that this is both technically and economically feasible. The thorough feasibility study is the first tangible result of the collaboration between the companies involved, each with its own specific and complementary expertise and experience. This laid the basis for concrete next steps, including pilot projects for the supply of sustainable energy by means of green molecules from countries where wind and solar are available in abundance to Belgian end users, among others.
Everything and everyone needs energy to thrive and progress. Today, with 1,300 employees, we move natural gas via terminals and through 24,000 kilometres of pipelines in Europe and Latin America.
We are making this 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.
FutureGrid is an ambitious programme which seeks to build a hydrogen test facility in Northern England
Within the spirit of partnerships and cross-border cooperation for CO2 transport, Fluxys Belgium and Wintershall Dea signed a cooperation agreement. This agreement is one of the many steps to accelerate the green transition and to contribute towards a sustainable low carbon industry.
Circular project in Wallonia using CO2 to make sustainable concrete blocks for the construction industry. Fluxys uses its infrastructure to transport the CO2 between the emitter and the block producer.
Fluxys and Equinor have agreed to develop a major infrastructure project for transporting captured CO2 from emitters to safe storage sites in the North Sea, connecting Belgium to Norway. The project is in the feasibility stage, with an investment decision expected by 2025.
The Information Memorandum sets forth certain information regarding the transportation and terminalling of CO₂ as the capture and reuse or storage of CO₂ can make a key contribution to achieving the decarbonisation targets. It goes hand in hand with infrastructure proposals based on the identified market interest.
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.
Antwerp@C is a project to halve CO2 emissions in the port of Antwerp by 2030 by building CO2 infrastructure with open access. The CO2 is captured and exported for offshore storage or made available for possible reuse.
On 8 December 2022 the EU Commission has announced it will grant Fluxys Belgium, North Sea Port and ArcelorMittal Belgium €9,6 million under the Connecting Europe Facility for Energy (CEF-E) funding program. The funding is earmarked for the study of the Ghent Carbon Hub project, an open-access multi modal CO2 storage and liquefaction terminal in North Sea Port combined with a CO2 pipeline network connecting the Walloon region to the hub in Ghent.
Just as Fluxys pioneered in the storage of natural gas in the 1980s, we are now putting our expertise and innovative power to work exploring the underground storage of hydrogen. The Loenhout site has unique natural conditions that allow us to store large amounts of energy underground.
With the BE-HyStore pilot project, Fluxys once again proves its innovative edge in the world of storage.
The Zeebrugge Multi-molecule Hub is a flagship project in Fluxys’ strategy to speed up the energy transition. The project envisions the Zeebrugge LNG terminal to reshape into a multi-directional and multi-molecule hub for large-scale decarbonisation. Serving as a crossroads of tomorrow’s molecule flows, the terminal is set to offer in one single ecosystem a comprehensive array of multi-molecule decarbonisation services for the Northwest European market.
