Suape Port and UK partner on green hydrogen project

The Port of Suape announced a collaboration with the UK for a project to advance green hydrogen development and manufacturing in the industrial complex.

At the “Hydrogen Possibilities in Brazil” conference in London, which was attended by business owners in the renewable energy industry and researchers from the area, support for the port of Suape was revealed. The event, which was promoted by the Brazilian Embassy in the UK in cooperation with the host government, concentrated on four national ports, including the Suape complex. Power and output.

The management of the port of Suape, according to Márcio Guiot, CEO of Suape, demonstrated the strategic potential of the complex and the ongoing and upcoming H2V initiatives. We will create an ad hoc committee to review our approach based on the items on this agenda. He said, “We need to look at opportunities in the H2V value chain and form alliances with research institutions studying renewable energy, like Aberdeen (Scotland) and Sheffield Field (England).

To support initiatives aiming at the development and production of green hydrogen, the alliance also envisions a direct connection between the Suape complex and the ports of the United Kingdom. Carlos Cavalcanti, Suape’s Director of Environment and Sustainability, emphasized how vital this ongoing exchange of knowledge and technology is for both nations.

Between January and December 2022, the Port of Supe handled 24.7 million tons, a 12.0% increase over 2021, placing it second in the Northeast and fourth in Brazil.

Crude oil, which increased by 41% from the prior year to 9.5 million tons, was the principal commodity handled by the Pernambuco port division. The amount of cargo handled in ports in 2022 will be 84.6 million tons, up 4.71% from the year before.
