The agreement will be made official at the launch of the call for expressions of interest on 26 June for hydrogen transport and storage infrastructure as part of the HySoW project. For the two companies, it is a new stage of their commitment to accelerate the energy transition and to offer manufacturers effective decarbonisation solutions.
Both partners are currently involved in the HySoW (Hydrogen South West Corridor) project, and more specifically in the storage part of this project.
The HySoW project plans to implement transport and storage infrastructures that can decarbonise the major industrial and mobility hubs in the territories of Occitanie and Nouvelle-Aquitaine by interconnecting them with flows of locally produced hydrogen such as those coming from Southern Europe, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coast (French production and imports). The project will also help enhance the security of supply and flexibility of the entire energy system by providing hydrogen storage capacity.
