HH2E, Gascade announce pipeline grid connection agreement

German natural gas transmission system operator GASCADE Gastransport has confirmed the grid connection of HH2E’s green hydrogen production site in Lubmin on the German Baltic coast to the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL Lines 1 and 2). HH2E plans to commence production of green hydrogen in Lubmin by the end of 2025.

Initially, the pipelines will transport a mix of hydrogen and natural gas.

When the capacities of the ‘Flow – making hydrogen happen’ pipeline can be booked, HH2E will start using it. This large-volume onshore pipeline system from the Baltic Sea coast to southern Germany is part of the draft of the German hydrogen core network and has been confirmed by the European Commission as a Project of Common Interest.

“The blending of hydrogen is an important intermediate step for us on the way to transporting pure hydrogen,” said GASCADE Managing Director Ulrich Benterbusch. “By converting existing pipelines from natural gas to the transportation of hydrogen, we are actively driving forward the transformation process in the energy sector. With the Flow – making hydrogen happen project, we will create substantial transport capacities and a central axis in German hydrogen transport by 2025.”
