August 23, 2022

The Belledune Port Authority (BPA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Niedersachsen Ports Wilhelmshaven to collaborate on the transportation of goods between Canada and Germany by focusing on the use clean fuels and green products. The MoU supports the agreement between the two nations for an energy partnership aimed at achieving net-zero emission targets by 2050.

"We are proud to support Canada's efforts to bring sustainable energy to the world, while achieving our own goals of diversification, encouraging new investment and developing green energy solutions," Denis Caron, President and CEO of the Port of Belledune, said.

The new agreement between the port authorities launches a collaborative process to support the emerging needs of the energy and manufacturing sectors in both countries. The exchanges will focus on the production, storage and transportation of cleaner fuels, such as green ammonia and hydrogen.

The MoU’s announcement follows the recent agreement between the Port of Belledune and Cross River Infrastructure Partners to develop a green hydrogen production facility at the port.
