Slovak gas transmission system operator Eustream should transport, in addition to natural gas, hydrogen, local media reported.
On Thursday, Eustream joined the international industry partnership on the production and supply of green hydrogen 'H2EU+Store', reported news portal Slovak Spectator. Hydrogen derived from solar and wind energy will be produced in Ukraine, transported via Eusteam's network to Austria and Germany, and stored for seasonal demand in central Europe in the future, the operator said on its website.
"Among other initiatives, we plan to dedicate one of the main lines of our transmission network to the transport of 100-percent hydrogen", said Rastislav Ňukovič, director-general of Eusteam, as cited on the website.
In order to accelerate and ramp up the production of green hydrogen for Europe, which is vital for a climate-neutral future energy supply, the international industry partnership consisting of Bayerngas GmbH, Bayernets GmbH, Eco-Optima LLC, Open Grid Europe GmbH and RAG Austria AGhas designed the H2EU+Store project. By signing the letter of intent (LoI), Eustream has now become another participant.
