Fruitful hydrogen mission during ADIPEC

Parallel to the ADIPEC (October 31 to November 3), a three-day hydrogen mission was organised by the Dutch embassies from the GCC region in collaboration with RVO and IRO.

About 12 Dutch companies and organizations took part in the missions, including TNO, the Port of Rotterdam , EBN, OCI, Vopak, SoluForce and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate.

A very successful mission, which was also a follow-up to the MoU signed in March 2022 between the UAE and the Netherlands.

Program components of the hydrogen mission included:

  • Roundtable with Ministry of Energy UAE
  • Roundtable with Masdar City
  • Site visit Port Khalifa
  • Roundtable Oman
  • Site visit TAQA Energy

Mutual ambitions from governments were shared during the various sessions and site visits, and there was also a transfer of knowledge about Dutch technology and products based on hydrogen.

A follow-up has already been defined from this interesting and instructive mission:

  • Stimulate incoming delegations GCC to Offshore Energy A’dam 29-30 November 2022
  • Visit Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in January 2023
  • Incoming delegations to World Hydrogen Summit Rotterdam 9-11 May 2023
