Green Ammonia | Port of Liverpool
- Mar 3, 2023 4:07 pm GMT
StanlowTerminals has announced a new open access import terminal for green ammonia in the Port of Liverpool.
Stanlow New division to include hydrogen, biofuels and green ammonia.
The company has created a new division called Essar Energy Transition (EET) which will include: the oil refining and marketing business at Stanlow; Vertex Hydrogen, which is developing 1 gigawatt (GW) of blue hydrogen for the UK market, with follow-on capacity set to reach 3.8GW; EET Future Energy, which is developing 1 GW of green ammonia in India, targeted at UK and international markets; Stanlow Terminals, which is developing enabling storage and pipeline infrastructure; and EET Biofuels, which is investing in developing 1 MT of low carbon biofuels.
Green ammonia is a crucial component in the development of the global hydrogen economy and is expected to develop into one of the world’s major sustainable energy commodities. Once operational, the new terminal will put Stanlow Terminals at the heart of the global hydrogen energy market, with ready access to large scale international green ammonia imports. This can include imports from Essar Energy Transition’s own 1 GW green ammonia project in Gujarat, India.
The new terminal will be advantageously located within Stanlow Terminal’s existing facilities, where it will benefit from the Port of Liverpool’s unique combination of competitive geographical location, deep water access and maritime infrastructure which is capable of handling the largest gas carrier vessels. The terminal will also benefit from direct connectivity with Hynet, the UK’s leading low carbon hydrogen project in terms of scale and speed to market.
Feasibility studies are currently being undertaken, with the terminal currently scheduled to commence operations in 2027.
The development of the green ammonia terminal is the latest phase in Stanlow Terminal’s long-term plan to become the UK’s largest bulk liquid storage and energy infrastructure solutions provider.
Michael Gaynon, Chief Executive, Stanlow Terminals, commented:
“This new terminal is the latest milestone in Stanlow Terminal’s and Essar’s ongoing commitment to leading the UK’s low carbon transformation. By investing in new energies infrastructure and building a secure supply chain of green ammonia into the UK, we are building on our expertise in storing and blending of bulk liquids to put the North West economy at the forefront of the UK’s energy transition to net zero.”
