The Belledune Port Authority is working with Cross River Infrastructure Partners LLC to develop a large-scale hydrogen production facility at the Green Energy Hub.


Working closely with our local communities and Indigenous rights holders, we have partnered with the Government of New Brunswick and our provincial electric utility NB Power to align, develop and market opportunities for private sector green development.


In August 2022, the Governments of Canada and Germany signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish an energy partnership aimed at achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 through a transition to safe, secure, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy.

The project would use

500 MW

of clean energy to produce green hydrogen and ammonia for export. Planned expansions would create the capacity to serve both local and global energy needs.

Pending the outcome of feasibility studies, environmental assessments, due diligence and permitting,

the hydrogen production facility

could come online by 2027.


“On behalf of the Government of New Brunswick, I am excited by the possibility of being part of an Atlantic Canadian solution for supplying clean energy, like hydrogen production, to the world. New Brunswick is well positioned and ready to partner with its allies and the private sector in the development of clean energy and energy security.”

Blaine Higgs

Premier of New Brunswick

“We believe the Port of Belledune is the best location in Eastern Canada to establish this innovative green hydrogen facility. Belledune is an established year-round port with easy access to the key European and North American markets we’re targeting. With most of the required infrastructure in place, including a critical source of existing clean energy and substantial existing transmission to power our operations, we view this as a significant opportunity for everyone involved.”

Rishi Jain

Managing Director, Cross River Infrastructure Partners

“Pabineau First Nation is pleased to support the Port of Belledune on its journey to create cleaner industry supported by renewable energy in our region. This collaboration is a good first step to realize our potential and I look forward to seeing it develop and create opportunities for Indigenous partnerships, economic development and employment.”

Terry Richardson

Chief of Pabineau First Nation

‘The future includes embracing new technology and this project is an example of that. Our role in this project will be to ensure we have the infrastructure in place to support what is being proposed and look forward to further engagement with the proponents.’

President and CEO of NB Power
