Companies in Denmark Join Forces to Create Sustainable Fuels
Published on May 31, 2020
Copenhagen Airports, A.P. Moller - Maersk, DSV Panalpina, DFDS, SAS and Ørsted have brought together the demand and supply side of sustainable fuels in a unique partnership with the concrete vision to develop a new ground-breaking hydrogen and e-fuel production facility as soon as 2023.
When fully scaled-up by 2030, the project could deliver more than 250,000 tonnes of sustainable fuel for busses, trucks, maritime vessels, and airplanes every year.
Production would potentially be based on a total electrolyser capacity of 1.3 gigawatts, which would likely make it one of the world’s largest facilities of its kind.
The production from the fully scaled facility can reduce annual carbon emissions by 850,000 tonnes.
The partnership hopes that the project can, over time, act as a catalyst for similar projects in other parts of Denmark and internationally.
Jens Bjørn Andersen, CEO, DSV Panalpina, said: “This ambitious partnership fits well with our long-term targets to reduce emissions and find sustainable solutions for our industry.
"We are proud to play a part. The transport sector is very important for Denmark but leaves a significant CO2 footprint and we are committed to finding ways to pave the road for a greener future. While this initiative is local, our long-term ambitions remain global."
The project also has the potential to displace 5% of fossil fuels at Copenhagen Airport by 2027 and 30% by 2030.
