From 13-15 May you can meet us at the World Hydrogen Summit. Having been part of the hydrogen hype since its inception, we have seen this event grow to more than 15,000 participants. We look forward to meeting hydrogen stakeholders and discussing the latest developments.

Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that can help address several critical energy challenges. Our Benelux Hydrogen team is dedicated to supporting and unlocking the opportunities that arise in this constantly evolving landscape. From the 'design, build and operate phase' of new infrastructure, to the development of new trading and certification models, to the evaluation of hydrogen supply chains and strategies.

Meet us at the world Hydrogen Summit 2024 in Rotterdam to discuss the latest developments, opportunities and challenges in the hydrogen energy sector.
