Atura Power is expected to provide Canada’s Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA) with green hydrogen as a fresh MoU is signed. Hydrogen Industry Leaders highlights the impact this could have on its commitment to decarbonise.
After in-depth investigations into the potential use of green hydrogen across its operations, HOPA has come to the conclusion that the use of hydrogen produced by Atura is a viable solution to meet decarbonisation targets.
The introduction of green hydrogen into HOPAs operation could act as a call to action for the uptake of hydrogen elsewhere. The operations cover the largest port in the Great Lakes region of Canada, including facilities in Oshawa, Hamilton and Niagara.
Ian Hamilton, President and Chief Executive Officer of HOPA Ports, explained: “We are eager to explore the potential of using hydrogen to power our operations and are proud to support the growth of renewable energy in Ontario.”
Cummins is expected to build a 20MW electrolyser for Atura Power, which is expected to be operational as early as 2024.
