Italian energy company Enel and Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri will collaborate for the use of green hydrogen in ports and long-range shipping.
Hydrogen plays an important role in reducing emissions in heavy transport sectors such as transport that are difficult to electrify. Italian Enel, one of Europe’s largest energy companies, signed a green hydrogen agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri to increase the use of hydrogen in maritime transportation within the scope of climate targets.
With the agreement, Enel will collaborate with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri to find ways to use green hydrogen in ports and long-haul shipping.
According to the statement, the two companies plan to leverage their expertise and know-how in their respective industries to identify possible sustainable and innovative solutions.
The two companies will consider the possibility of collaborating on the supply of green hydrogen to both sea, submarine and surface vessels as well as industrial users within the port area, including the design and construction of necessary infrastructure elements, including storage.
Enel’s Eugenio Montale power plant in La Spezia (Liguria region) will be used as a first test site for activities under the agreement. Thus, a sustainable energy transition line will be created for the field.
