“AquaVentus is one of the most ambitious hydrogen initiatives in Germany. With its sub-projects, it takes a look at the entire value chain – from the generation of green electricity in offshore wind farms to the production of hydrogen at sea and its transport to customers on land. As a founding member of the initiative, RWE brings a broad range of expertise to help make the AquaVentus vision a reality: We are one of the world’s leading operators of offshore wind farms with a strong presence on Helgoland and have expertise at all stages of the hydrogen value chain.”

“I’m on the board of AquaVentus because we, as Shell Germany, are going to be the leading supplier of green hydrogen by 2030. This is an important part of our blueprint for the future and our path to net zero emissions. In doing so, we are looking at developing the entire value chain; from entering electricity production using renewables, to expanding capacity for hydrogen production, to distribution for mobility/transportation applications and other industries.”

“I am on the board of AquaVentus because the sea and wind have been of special importance to us Helgolanders for centuries. They form the basis of our island life and are now also becoming more and more important worldwide in terms of energy supply and climate protection. With AquaVentus, we can succeed in carrying the spark created on the island of Helgoland into the world to harness the unlimited power of the sun, wind and sea to enable future generations to live on this planet.”
