Germany selects Hamburg for green ammonia site

Green hydrogen projects

Germany has selected the northern city of Hamburg for the country’s new green ammonia landing site — strengthening its efforts to decarbonize industry, using hydrogen.

The operation will start in 2026.

German Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck called the decision “a milestone in the scaling of the hydrogen economy in Germany and a powerful signal to the entire hydrogen market in Germany and Europe.”

The private companies Air Products and Mabanaft are participating in the project. The green ammonia received from Saudi Arabia will be converted into hydrogen and delivered to end customers. The Oiltanking Deutschland company will run the terminal.
