In this article, it is described that EU countries have agreed on building a hydrogen-fueling infrastructure by 2030. TNO concludes that for the Netherlands this will result in substantial demand, requiring an average supply per fueling station of 2 tons per day.
Meeting this demand, in the long run, will only be sustainable with hydrogen supply by pipeline. Therefore, re-purposing the gas pipeline network for hydrogen in NL needs to be further accelerated to meet these new EU targets.
We can reassure that Orbital Eye is fully ready to fulfill the extended monitoring requirements associated with the transport of hydrogen through the existing natural gas infrastructure with our satellite-based monitoring solution CoSMiC-Eye and are committed to making this transition to hydrogen-driven transport possible in a safe and responsible way!
