Wilhelmshaven is Germany’s only deep-water port and is situated between the rivers Ems and Weser, on the western banks of the Jade delta.
We believe that Wilhelmshaven’s proximity to existing onshore wind farms in the region and other offshore wind farms planned in the German North Sea will make the area an ideal location also for electrolysis plants to produce green hydrogen. Produced oxygen from the electrolyzers will also be used in the various green energy processes.
We want to boldly drive forward energy transition with the aim of making Germany’s energy supply CO2-neutral. This will be achieved by developing Wilhelmshaven as a green energy hub.
The Terminal will be connected through a newly constructed, dedicated 42 inch pipeline into the core of Europe’s industrial heartland of Ruhr area and Hamburg/Bremen, whilst existing nearby underground gas caverns at Etzel and with the Groningen gas pipeline infrastructure closeby, this location is perfectly suited to provide both long-term security and flexibility of supply to the European market.
The Wilhelmshaven Green Energy Hub is a truly transformative project built to last for generations which will launch Northwest Germany as a global clean energy powerhouse and therefore has attracted political support from EU, federal, state and local level.
Our terminal will be purposely built for a decarbonised future and directly connected to three major cross-European backbones.
Built at scale
The Wilhelmshaven terminal layout will comprise 6 ship berths, 2,000,000 cubic meters of onshore storage capacity using 10 onsite tanks, of which 6 will be available during the initial stage.
Its dedicated 6 Suez max suitable berths will provide a truly open import portal for green gas deliveries from all corners of the world.
End of 2023: Final Investment Decision (FID)
End of 2025: Start of operations and import of green molecules
From 2030 onwards: ramp-up of green molecules imports
We carried studies and examinations of the flora and fauna of the Voslapper Groden area over the last three years. The aim of Tree Energy Solutions is not only to compensate for the valuable area taken up, but also to provide added ecological value by creating optimal habitats.
Why green hydrogen?
Without abundant green hydrogen in our global energy supply we will not achieve climate goals. It’s a recognised zero-carbon energy vector and the knowledge to produce it is there. But the speed of market ramp-up is too slow. We want to change this by introducing a circular carbon economy to the hydrogen system.
Green hydrogen will fail to deliver unless it is produced at scale, made affordable and available on-demand. TES is on a mission to be the first world-scale green hydrogen company. We aim to build some of the world’s largest hydrogen projects in order to accelerate the clean energy transition, beginning in Europe. Our model will unleash affordable green hydrogen, green gas and green power in volumes that will truly help to decarbonise European, regional and global markets.
We are thinking differently
Our model is to create disruptive, sustainable carbon cycles which retain financial value and eliminate emissions through closed loops. In our first projects we will produce green hydrogen with renewable energy in the places where sun, wind or hydropower are most abundant. This hydrogen will be transported as green methane to our European Green Energy Hub in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, to be fed into existing gas pipelines for use in industry or reconverted into green hydrogen.
This new cycle is a disruption for the energy industry because it includes the capture and reuse of CO2 to produce synthetic methane from green hydrogen in a closed loop. We expect a CO2 capture rate of 98%.
How do we produce, transport and distribute green hydrogen?
What do they say about us?
“By 2045, the company plans to import enough green gas to produce more than 5 million tons of hydrogen, the equivalent of about 10% of Germany’s total annual primary energy demand.”
“With green hydrogen at its core, the Wilhelmshaven green gas terminal is sustainable, carbon-neutral, and transitional, meeting the German Government’s short-term and long-term energy requirements.”
