Zeeland Hydrogen Land - Zeeland Waterstofland



For the Energy Transition, industry is gradually gearing up for large capacities of green hydrogen generation (by electrolysis), which will be distributed mainly through the hydrogen back bone grid, in future.


An economic attractive flexible green hydrogen distribution system for small generators (electrolyzers) and for consumption by many small businesses, is urgently needed. Similar functionality like current mature distribution of fossil fuels (which is a proven infra structure), is required.


The lead partner Vitrite Middelburg with Blue H Engineering, VoltH2, Yerseke Engine Service (YES), and Impuls Zeeland, develops such a flexible distribution system (hydrogen swapping tank-container) for the distribution of green hydrogen earlier than everybody will be connected to the hydrogen back bone grid and especially for SME’s who will generate and will consume. This project, named Zeeland Hydrogen land, is funded by the REACT-EU program and honored by the Province of Zeeland.



The innovative project tackles barriers, like:

-No availability of flexible, economic attractive distribution unit (for transportation and storage) for the range of 350 – 750 kg of green hydrogen supply.
-No availability of a quick and save connection method to load and unload at hydrogen terminals. Also, when highest safety levels are required.
-No availability of an economic distribution to hydrogen refilling stations (roads), and in future for bunker stations (waterways), and airports, and as a clean fuel for inland waterway shipping (propulsion) and for smart heat and power supply for buildings and homes.
-Locked market, controlled by the main industrial gasses’ suppliers.



The project performs and demonstrates


Development, testing and validation of technical tools and socio-economic models (business cases) for the implementation of the green hydrogen swapping tank-container system and the demonstration of its flexible distribution method.

All to increase the adoption and implementation of the distribution of zero carbon fuel and/or green building block, with high impact potential.
