Nippon Gases participates in green hydrogen production project in Belgium

Terranova Hydrogen NV is the new company founded by Terranova, Luminus and Nippon Gases Belgium. They are working together to build and operate an installation for the production of green hydrogen at Zonneberg in Zelzate.

The three companies will collaborate at Zonneberg on the construction and operation of a 2.5 MW electrolysis unit for the production of green hydrogen, including storage capacity and a compression and filling station. In addition, there is the possibility of further expanding the plant to 5 MW.

This project is part of the rollout of the Flanders Hydrogen Vision, where green hydrogen will be produced at the Terranova site in Zelzate, Belgium, using green electricity generated by solar and onshore wind power. This is the first time that green hydrogen is produced and supplied from renewable energy sources in Belgium. The production of green hydrogen is scheduled to start in early 2025.

Nippon Gases will not only provide the hydrogen produced in this project to existing customers but also will also meet the new green hydrogen demand resulting from the energy transition toward carbon neutrality.

NSHD Group has “Exploring new business toward carbon neutrality” as one of the focused fields in its medium-term management plan “NS Vision 2026,” which ends in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2026. Through participating in this project, we will explore further opportunities for our growth and the realization of carbon neutrality.
