ACE Terminal and Iberdrola have joined forces for the import of green hydrogen that the Spanish energy company wants to transport to the Netherlands in the form of green ammonia. At the same time, a letter of intent was signed between Iberdrola and Gasunie to establish the green hydrogen chain from Spain to the Netherlands. Iberdrola will supply green ammonia to the planned ACE import terminal, a project of HES International, Vopak and Gasunie in the port of Rotterdam, and have it transported as green hydrogen to its European customers via the Dutch national hydrogen network of Gasunie's subsidiary Hynetwork Servies.
