Fast developing hydrogen ecosystem in Rotterdam discussed at World Hydrogen Summit breakfast session


Prior to the World Hydrogen Summit 2024 on Tuesday, May 14, InnovationQuarter, Rotterdam Partners, and the City of Rotterdam organized a breakfast session at Rotterdam Ahoy. The topic of discussion: the rapidly growing hydrogen ecosystem in the Rotterdam region and port area.

Claudia Stolk, Business Manager Energy & Offshore at Rotterdam Partners, was one of the speakers for this session. She explained how Rotterdam Partners, along with InnovationQuarter, helps international companies and employees settle in the port city. “We try to make the landing as smooth as possible by connecting you with the regional ecosystem.”

Other speakers presented the latest exciting developments in the Rotterdam region, including new extensive hydrogen facilities at the Maasvakte; a new Innovation Campus Around Hydrogen at Merwe Vierhavens (M4H); the H2Hub at Sliedrecht and hydrogen developments at Rotterdam The Hague Airport, where the DutchH2 Aviation Hub is working on hydrogen applications for aviation.

Rotterdam’s hydrogen economy takes shape

If the contributions of the speakers made one thing clear, it is that the hydrogen economy in the Rotterdam region is developing rapidly. The first steps towards a fully-fledged sector, where production, storage, and application each find their place, have been taken. However, there are still many interesting opportunities for startups, scale-ups, and larger companies. Both regional and international companies are warmly invited to join this groundbreaking initiative.
