ASX-listed Provaris has signed a 12-month memorandum of understanding with Uniper to evaluate the delivery of green hydrogen to Germany using Provaris’ compressed hydrogen H2Neo carriers.

Uniper operates about 22.5 gigawatts of power generation capacity in Europe and will work with Provaris to qualify the technical, operational and economic benefits of Provaris’ compressed hydrogen supply chain technology.

According to an announcement from Provaris, the supply of green hydrogen is important to Germany’s decarbonisation ambitions.

Uniper is evaluating a portfolio of opportunities for hydrogen along the entire value chain from production and trading to transport, storage and distribution.

Provaris managing director and CEO Martin Carolan said: “our focus on the development of regional supply chains provide a practical and relevant delivery model, providing flexibility to a portfolio of hydrogen import alternatives required for Germany”.
