Port of Belledune, Province to promote clean energy trade at World Hydrogen Summit

The Belledune Port Authority, the Province of New Brunswick and the Government of Canada are working together to promote Belledune’s Green Energy Hub and clean hydrogen project at the world’s biggest hydrogen industry conference in Rotterdam, Netherlands on May 12-15. 

The Port team is joined by officials from Opportunities New Brunswick and the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development to promote the province as a destination of choice for clean energy to thousands of international delegates at the World Hydrogen Summit

At the summit, the New Brunswick team will promote opportunities for increased trade and investment, attend meetings with the Ports of Rotterdam and private industry.

“We are pleased to share news about the exciting energy transition happening here in New Brunswick with our European partners,” said Port CEO Denis Caron. “We have sustainable solutions that will help meet Europe’s energy needs, decarbonize industry and bring prosperity to northern New Brunswick. We are thankful for the support from all levels of government for their help in creating this opportunity. “  

Following the summit, the Port team will also visit the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, Europe’s second-largest port and a leader in green fuels development, to explore opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. 

The BPA is seeking investment and trade opportunities related to the Green Energy Hub, a special development district on Port lands welcoming green energy projects and low-carbon industry. 

A key project of the Green Energy Hub includes a wind-to-hydrogen facility set to begin commercial production and exports within the next five years. 

Private developer Cross River Infrastructure Partners are planning to locate this multi-billion dollar hydrogen facility in Belledune. The project will serve domestic and international clean energy markets with a focus on Europe.  The 500 MW hydrogen production plant will be fueled by up to 1500 MW of new wind developments and eventually, small modular reactors. 

Pending business planning, regulatory approvals and technical studies, the first phase could come online by 2028.
