Hynetwork Services

Hynetwork Services (formerly Gasunie Waterstof Services) is the operator of the hydrogen transport pipeline in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. This pipeline connects DOW Benelux in Terneuzen with Yara in Sluiskil. DOW’s production process releases hydrogen as a by-product. This can be used by Yara as a raw material. A former Gasunie natural gas transport pipeline has been commissioned for this purpose. This has been specially adapted to transport hydrogen.

This reuse of existing natural gas infrastructure is exceptional. A very good example of what is possible when companies and governments work together. Not only does it save energy, it also reduces CO₂ emissions. In addition, valuable experience has been gained in transporting hydrogen through natural gas pipelines. Perhaps this project is the stepping stone to large-scale hydrogen transport through the Netherlands!

As technical manager, Arjan was closely involved in this project. He tells more about it in this film!
