- On Friday, August 30, ‘Mission H2 partnership was officially launched.
- Mission H2 will promote hydrogen as an important and sustainable energy carrier for the future.
- Mission H2 – named after the hydrogen molecule H2 – simultaneously supports TeamNL on its way to the Tokyo 2020 Games.
‘Mission H2’, the bundling of six strong Dutch companies in the energy chain , has entered into a partnership with TeamNL . Gasunie , Shell Netherlands, Remeha , Stedin Group , Port of Amsterdam and Groningen Seaports will promote hydrogen as an important and sustainable energy carrier for the (under the name of Mission H2 and as a partner of TeamNL in the run-up to and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Tokyo 2020) near future.
Mission H2 – named after the hydrogen molecule H2 – simultaneously supports TeamNL on its way to the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Gerard Dielessen, Managing Director NOC * NSF:
“Japan has opted for hydrogen for the energy supply of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. For example, the cars to be deployed by the Tokyo 2020 organization will run on an H2 fuel cell. This makes the Games of 2020 a great momentum to show what hydrogen also has in the Netherlands for the transition to a sustainable energy supply. We are happy to help with TeamNL to familiarize the Netherlands with hydrogen as an important and sustainable energy carrier in the run-up to Tokyo 2020. It is wonderful for TeamNL that these companies commit themselves to this sport and to sustainability at least until 2020 with this innovative and sustainability-oriented initiative. We can make good use of that support on the way to the Tokyo 2020 Games. ”
Ulco Vermeulen, member of the Gasunie Executive Board, on behalf of Mission H2:
“ To increase awareness of the sustainable possibilities of hydrogen among the Dutch public, six Dutch companies are working together. Under the heading ‘Mission H2’ we bring concrete hydrogen projects and initiatives to the attention of the Dutch public. Our goal is to initiate a broad movement for the benefit of the energy transition. It’s great that we can do this as a partner of TeamNL. We, too, want to get the best out of ourselves and keep raising the bar. Innovate together and work together. That is our joint strength. The Netherlands Hydrogen land. ”
Water is the driving force behind TeamNL
The Netherlands and water are inextricably linked. On the one hand, water is a challenge with regard to our safety and at the same time is often the driving force behind economic growth. Our rowers, swimmers and water sports enthusiasts know the power of the water only too well. Water has brought them success, medals that the whole of the Netherlands is proud of. Water will again bring us success in the form of the hydrogen component. Mission H2 will work as a partner of TeamNL to introduce the Netherlands to hydrogen and its potential as a sustainable energy carrier.
