Rosatom to Supply Hydrogen from Sakhalin to China

  • Rusatom Overseas, part of Rosatom State Corporation, and China Energy International Group, part of China Energy Engineering Group Co., Ltd. (CEEC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that lays the foundation for further cooperation on the pilot project of constructing a hydrogen plant on the island of Sakhalin and sets the main conditions for new export supplies of hydrogen from Russia to China.

    The document was signed during the 7th Eastern Economic Forum recently held in Vladivostok by Evgeny Pakermanov, President of Rusatom Overseas, and Song Liang, General Director of China Energy Rus LLC and Gezhouba (CGGC, Subgroups of CEEC) Rus LLC , CEEC’s head office in Russia.

    Under the agreement, the parties will consider implementing the project jointly, including organising low-carbon hydrogen export from the island of Sakhalin to China as soon as in 2025, Rosatom said in a statement.

    “Russia and China have a lasting and successful track record of cooperation in the nuclear and advanced technology areas; we are happy that by signing the memorandum today with our Chinese partners, we lay the foundation for cooperation in the hydrogen area. We plan to start building the plant as early as next year and commission it for industrial operation in 2025. For hydrogen export to China, we are considering the scenario of shipping hydrogen in its liquid state by sea in tank containers. China is implementing its own large-scale programme for hydrogen technology, production and use project development; our cooperation is yet another step towards fulfilling our national plans to develop hydrogen economies of our countries,” Evgeny Pakermanov commmented.
