Study into shipping hydrogen begins
The Global Energy share price is taking off on the back of a new study into transporting green hydrogen.
Hydrogen is labelled 'green' when it's processed using renewable energy.
The feasibility study will look into the possibility of transporting hydrogen from Province Resources Ltd's (ASX: PRL) HyEnergy Zero Carbon Hydrogen Project using Global Energy Ventures' compressed hydrogen shipping solution.
The study recently received up to $300,000 of funding from the Western Australian government.
It will integrate the HyEnergy Project's proposed green hydrogen production facility, an onshore compression facility, and an offshore mooring and loading system.
Global Energy Ventures proposes to build the onshore compression facility and offshore terminal.
The study will also integrate a fleet of compressed hydrogen ships, like those owned by Global Energy Ventures, for marine transport. It will assess the potential to transport the green hydrogen to markets in the Asia Pacific region.
The study is expected to be finished in the June quarter of 2022.
