VTTI, Essent and E.ON to jointly develop green ammonia cracker project in Rotterdam

December 23, 2022
VTTI, Essent and Essent’s parent company E.ON today announced that they have entered into an agreement (letter of intent) to develop a world-scale ammonia cracker in Rotterdam supporting the European hydrogen economy.

The project, called Amplifhy Rotterdam, will convert imported green ammonia to green hydrogen to help decarbonize the Rotterdam industrial area as well as hard to abate industrial clusters in north-western Europe through the European hydrogen backbone system currently being developed. The facility, foreseen to come online as early as 2026,  will be scaled up in phases.

VTTI, with the support of Essent and E.ON, has applied to the European Commission for the facility to become a Project of Common Interest (PCI) with a view to accelerating the endeavour.

Projects of Common Interest are key cross border infrastructure projects that link the energy systems of EU countries. They are intended to help the EU achieve its energy policy and climate objectives: affordable, secure and sustainable energy for all citizens, and the long-term decarbonisation of the economy in accordance with the Paris Agreement.

Project Amplifhy Rotterdam is part of a broader VTTI initiative to develop hydrogen import facilities, called Amplifhy Europe. In addition to Rotterdam, VTTI has also applied for a PCI status on a planned facility in Antwerp (Project Amplifhy Antwerp).
