EHB signs MoU with TSO of Ukraine on collaboration towards an integrated European hydrogen infrastructure
“The EHB vision is to build an integrated pan-European hydrogen infrastructure to supply hydrogen to end-users at a low cost. The large demand volumes identified in previous EHB work, and the acceleration anticipated as part of RePowerEU, will need as much European domestic supply and imports from neighbouring regions as possible. In our assessment of supply potential from countries neighbouring the EHB, we identified among others also Ukraine as essential. I am happy to announce that today EHB entered into an MoU with the TSO of UA. It is the basis of future collaborations to establish the right environment to connect Ukrainian assets to the EU hydrogen infrastructure. We are very close to the Ukrainian TSO and all those affected by the war” – says Daniel Muthmann, Chairman of European Hydrogen Backbone.
“Ukraine could be a great partner of the EU when it comes to implementing the “Hydrogen Strategy. Our system of gas pipelines should be of service for the hydrogen transportation to EU. We are happy to announce that TSO of Ukraine entered into an MoU with the European Hydrogen Backbone. We expect that collaboration with other European gas TSO’s will support a more rapid implementation of this vision” – says Pawel Stanczak, Deputy General Director for Development and Transformation, Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine / Оператор ГТС України.
