    EverWind Fuels Partners with Port of Rotterdam: A Green Hydrogen Revolution Begins

    In a landmark move that underscores the growing global commitment to green energy, EverWind Fuels, a North American leader in green hydrogen development, has announced an exciting new partnership with the Port of Rotterdam. This collaboration aims to revolutionize the green hydrogen supply chain, marking a significant step towards a sustainable future.

    A Strategic Alliance with Europe’s Largest Seaport

    On May 15, 2024, officials from the Province of Nova Scotia joined EverWind Fuels in celebrating this groundbreaking partnership. The Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest and most vital seaport, serves as the key distribution hub for energy to Northwest Europe, including Germany’s industrial powerhouse, the Ruhr area. This alliance positions EverWind’s Atlantic Canadian green hydrogen projects at the forefront of Europe’s green energy transition.

    “Rotterdam has been a trusted hub for decades,” said Boudewijn Siemons, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority. “Now, it is ready and able to make the switch to hydrogen. We are excited for EverWind’s green hydrogen and green ammonia production to be among the first volumes from North America to land in Europe.”

    Leading the Charge in Green Hydrogen Production

    EverWind Fuels has recently completed its front-end engineering design (FEED), a critical milestone involving over 110,000 hours of engineering. This achievement marks the first completion of FEED for a large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility in North America, setting a new standard for the industry.

    Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston expressed his enthusiasm for the project: “Nova Scotia is poised to be a world leader in the production of green hydrogen. Our Government is excited to host EverWind’s Point Tupper project, which will bring green jobs and a clean, sustainable future for Nova Scotians.”

    Transforming Energy Supply Chains

    The partnership with the Port of Rotterdam will see EverWind’s green hydrogen production supporting the port’s ambition to become an international hub for hydrogen production, import, application, and transport. Rotterdam anticipates importing eighteen million tonnes of hydrogen by 2050, with advanced preparations already underway to receive green ammonia by 2026. This collaboration promises to reshape the energy supply chain, enhancing the availability of green fuels across Northwest Europe.

    “Establishing successful green hydrogen projects requires a global supply chain,” said Trent Vichie, Founder and CEO of EverWind Fuels. “We’re confident that our projects in Atlantic Canada will produce the greenest, most cost-competitive green hydrogen in North America to decarbonize carbon-intensive processes domestically and abroad.”

    Pioneering Green Energy in North America

    EverWind Fuels stands at the vanguard of North America’s green hydrogen revolution. The company received the first Environmental Approval in North America for a large-scale green hydrogen project and is well advanced in the design, engineering, and development of its green energy generation and production facilities. These facilities will convert renewable energy into green hydrogen and green ammonia, vital components for the green energy transition.

    The company’s operational excellence is evident in its safety-first culture, boasting 18 years without a lost-time injury, and its strategic position with the deepest ice-free berth on the East Coast of North America. This position offers world-class access to rail, roads, and pipelines, crucial for efficient logistics and distribution.

    Commitment to Community and Environmental Stewardship

    EverWind Fuels is not only focused on technological and industrial advancements but also champions meaningful engagement with local communities and First Nations. With three First Nations equity partners, EverWind is dedicated to social and economic reconciliation and works closely with municipalities and stakeholder organizations to ensure broad-based benefits from its projects.

    The company’s project on the Burin Peninsula in Newfoundland & Labrador exemplifies its commitment to environmental stewardship. This initiative, supported by extensive environmental data collection and the largest wind measurement campaign in the province, aims to deliver green energy at scale, supporting global industrial giants in their transition to sustainable energy.

    A Visionary Leadership

    Under the leadership of Trent Vichie, a co-founder of Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners and a former Blackstone Partner, EverWind Fuels is guided by a team of over 20 seasoned professionals. The team’s diverse experience spans infrastructure, private equity, renewable power, engineering, and utility sectors, supported by a world-class advisory team including industry leaders like Black & Veatch, ILF, RES, and others.

    As the world pivots towards sustainable energy solutions, the partnership between EverWind Fuels and the Port of Rotterdam represents a monumental leap forward. This collaboration not only advances the green hydrogen supply chain but also sets a benchmark for future projects, paving the way for a greener, more sustainable world.
