TransHyDE – Helgoland - FKZ: 03HY208H

The Helgoland project is researching a transport chain based on the LOHC benzyltoluene between Helgoland and the port of Hamburg. The German island is considered as the site of hydrogen storage (hydrogenation) and the destination port of Hamburg as the site of hydrogen release (dehydrogenation). The researchers are also investigating how the waste heat from the hydrogenation process could be used to supply heat to the island. Material and safety aspects during transport as well as questions of classification and standardisation also play an important role in the partners' work. The goal is to create a blueprint that will enable the establishment of a LOHC-based hydrogen transport chain at comparable locations worldwide.
