Efforts to expand a sustainable and renewable energy supply system are in full swing as RWE joins forces with partners from the fields of policy, industry and science. There is an increasing focus on battery storage systems, hydrogen projects and gas power to cover the transition. In the industrial port city of Brunsbüttel, known for being a centre for technology, two projects with a national ambit are now running in parallel: With input from RWE and other partners, Brunsbüttel is becoming a leading German port for the importation of liquefied natural gas (LNG). For the longer term, the system must also be made ready for the prospect of conversion from LNG to hydrogen.
In parallel, an ammonia terminal is taking shape at the same location, in this case a project exclusive to RWE. With its direct access to the North Sea and the Baltic, and its connection to Europe’s inland waterways, Brunsbüttel meets the ideal logistical criteria. Brunsbüttel Ports GmbH is offering support for this construction project by making space available, in addition to acting as a logistical partner with port infrastructure for discharging tankers.
