On Wednesday, January 29, Cécile Prévieu, Executive President of Storengy, Jean-Frédéric Laurent, President of the Management Board of the Grand Port Maritime de Bordeaux and Pierre-Olivier Besombes, Director of the GBU ASC and executive vice-president of Nexeya, signed a Memorandum of Understanding during the European Assizes of the Energy Transition 2020 which take place in Bordeaux.
This specifies the principles of collaboration between partners within the framework of a hydrogen project which aims to make Bordeaux and it’s port a territory of hydrogen for industry and mobility.

- France+Hydrogen: Ademe Adds € 14.4 million into Zero Emission Valley
Within the framework of the Energy-Climate law and the Productive Pact, which aim to develop low-carbon and renewable hydrogen for mobility and industry in France, the three players, engaged in the energy transition, join forces to study the development potential of hydrogen in the Ambès area. At the end of this study phase, the possible uses on the territory and the port uses will be identified to imagine the development of the hydrogen sector. This protocol is a continuation of the partnership developed with ENGIE Solutions and the industrialist Nouryon, whose production of sodium chlorate generates a significant quantity of hydrogen which can be exploited within the framework of a circular economy approach scale of the territory.
Focus on hydrogen:
Hydrogen is mainly an energy carrier produced from natural gas or by electrolysis of water. Mainly used in industry (chemistry or refining), hydrogen also makes it possible to ensure the storage of electricity or transport (road, rail or maritime-maritime).
