As the first port that joined the Hydrogen Council, the Port of Rotterdam is preparing to accommodate green hydrogen from Chile, which signed a similar MoU with Singapore in February. The Port of Rotterdam's distribution network is expected to enhance the access of major European industrial zones to green hydrogen. Chile's growing base of customers signifies South America's rising role as a green hydrogen exporter. Such agreements set the stage for international hydrogen trade, an essential component of the global hydrogen economy. Clients looking to enter the hydrogen market, either as a user or as a supplier, should plan the logistics ahead and identify the potential supply chain partners.
