Developer aims to develop Point Tupper storage terminal into regional hydrogen and ammonia hub


Canadian developer Everwind Fuels has acquired the Point Tupper energy storage terminal in Novia Scotia from Texas-based Nustar Energy for $60mn, with the aim of developing the site into a green hydrogen hub for eastern Canada.

Green hydrogen production at the site on the Strait of Canso, near Port Hawkesbury, could start as early as 2025, with a potential electrolyser capacity of 200MW. Privately owned Everwind has chosen Norwegian electrolyser manufacturer Nel as the technology provider for the Feed stage of the project. The development is also expected to include ammonia production, with US company KBR providing the ammonia conversion technology.

Everwind says the 1,400-acre Point Tupper site is well placed to export to Europe and Asia. The site includes a deepwater port as well rail-loading facilities, pipeline networks, 7.8mn bl of storage capacity, freshwater supplies and electricity transmission.

“Onshore facilities like Point Tupper will be key to unlocking this important industry, and we are excited to play our part,” says Trent Vichie, CEO of Everwind. “We are confident that this is both the right place and the right time to pursue this development.”

Development funding for the facility has been secured along with federal support for the first phase of the project, according to Everwind, which says the project could potentially attract investment of $5-10bn.

“Governments across Canada are embracing green hydrogen and green ammonia as key parts of Canada's clean energy future and, with this investment, we are excited to support the development of a regional hydrogen hub in eastern Canada,” says Vichie.
