Belgian gas grid operator Fluxys and its German counterpart Gascade plan to build a 400-kilometre pipeline for green hydrogen in the North Sea.

The pipeline, named AquaDuctus, will transport green hydrogen produced by offshore wind farms in the North Sea to the German coast, where it will then be injected into the hydrogen network on the mainland.

The pipeline should become a cornerstone and backbone for future hydrogen infrastructure in the North Sea, the company states. The first hydrogen is expected to flow through the pipeline by 2030.

Both gas network managers have applied for the status of "Project of Common Interest" with the European Commission, which would allow the project to benefit from accelerated procedures and European funding.
