The collaboration will combine GasLog’s latest developments of a liquid hydrogen vessel and Chart’s experience in cryogenics and large-scale liquefaction solutions for the global distribution of LH2, including hydrogen compression, liquefaction and refrigeration technologies, and cryogenic loading/unloading operations.

Furthermore, the partnership aims to support GasLog’s participation in developing a commercial-scale LH2 supply chain from export markets in the Middle East to European and Asian destinations for onward distribution by liquid transportation and/or gas via pipelines to various end users.

To remind, GasLog and its partners Port of Amsterdam, Zenith Energy Terminals, the Omani government, and Hydrom are studying the establishment of a LH2 supply chain that will deliver Omani green hydrogen to the Amsterdam port and onwards to Europe.

CEO of GasLog, Paolo Enoizi, said: “This collaboration with Chart Industries is our commitment to explore and support the use of hydrogen, via liquid form, to benefit industries and users globally. I have confidence that our combined experience from the cryogenic industries will ensure the safety and efficiency of novel liquid hydrogen supply chains across the world.”

“We are excited to collaborate with GasLog for effective large-scale LH2 supply chain deployment,” stated Jill Evanko, CEO and President of Chart Industries. “We see a significant momentum shift from export developers discussing ammonia supply chains twelve months ago to LH2 supply chains today.”
