The two companies have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to identify and develop green hydrogen projects in Australia and Europe.
ILF Consulting Engineers (ILF) already has experience with European hydrogen projects, while Global Energy Ventures’ (GEV) compressed hydrogen (C-H2) shipping solution is continuing to progress with design and approvals incoming.
ILF and GEV intend to pursue renewable hydrogen projects that will employ the use of the C-H2 to transport the clean fuel to Europe.
GEV Managing Director Martin Carolan said Europe has been identified as a key market for green hydrogen.
“The MOU with ILF will establish GEV’s launch into Europe with one of the world’s leading engineering firms with expertise in the design and implementation of green hydrogen projects,” he said.
“ILF’s experience in hydrogen, strong reputation in project delivery and long-standing relationships will be beneficial to GEV in Europe while we will also look to ILF’s expertise across the value chain for hydrogen projects in Australia.”
ILF Business Development Manager Jens Kottsieper said ILF sees Australia as an important supplier of green hydrogen.
“Transporting large quantities of gases has been a topic that has kept us busy for more than 50 years,” he said.
“We are glad to be able to complement our pipeline and hydrogen expertise with GEV’s expertise in low-cost transport by ship.”
The MOU is valid until 31 December 2022 and can be extended by mutual agreement.
