Lubmin to get a new hydrogen terminal

First LNG, now hydrogen: Deutsche ReGas and the shipping company Höegh-LNG want to jointly develop the “world’s first floating import terminal for hydrogen”.

Deutsche ReGas is the operator of the LNG terminal in Germany in Mukran (and previously in Lubmin) and has now signed an agreement in principle with Höegh-LNG to realise the “Lubmin H2 import terminal”.

The terminal is to be “the world’s first floating import terminal for the large-scale conversion of green ammonia to green hydrogen”, the partners have now announced. It could go into operation at the beginning of 2026. The aim is to produce around 30,000 tons of hydrogen per year, which will be fed into the hydrogen core network via the existing feed-in point at the German ReGas Terminal in the port of Lubmin. The green ammonia cracker technology embedded in the barge solution was developed by Höegh LNG and serves as an industrial pilot project for the conversion and decarbonisation of FSRUs in Germany.

Lubmin is important for decarbanisation

Deutsche ReGas will provide the onshore infrastructure of the terminal, take over the overall coordination of the project, including the approval procedures and carry out the marketing of the import capacities at the terminal. Ingo Wagner, Managing Director of Deutsche ReGas, said: “Our agreement with Höegh LNG opens a significant new chapter in Germany’s energy transition strategy and in the development of our company. Our H2 import terminal Lubmin is thus an important building block for the decarbonisation of the industrial regions in eastern and southern Germany. The Lubmin H2 import terminal strengthens Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s position as a green energy powerhouse.”
