Kawasaki Heavy Industries, ADNOC Collaborating on Liquefied Hydrogen Supply Chain

Published on: 

Kawaski and ADNOC will explore how to create a commercially viable hydrogen supply chain.

The announcement of a Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) was made by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, pairing with ADNOC, an Abu Dhabi-based firm known for its lower-carbon intensity energy offerings. The primary focus of the agreement is to probe the possibilities for the companies in setting up international liquefied hydrogen supply chains.

Given the growing global thrust towards decarbonization, hydrogen is increasingly perceived as a promising energy source for the future, as its combustion process releases zero carbon dioxide. Through the SCA, Kawasaki and ADNOC will jointly explore opportunities in large-scale hydrogen production, liquefaction, infrastructure development, and maritime transportation of hydrogen to potential receivers. The end goal is the creation of a commercially viable international hydrogen supply chain.


In line with Kawasaki's Group Vision 2030, which emphasizes "Energy and Environmental Solutions" as a crucial area for future growth, Kawasaki through the SCA, intends to contribute to global decarbonization initiatives by endorsing and employing clean hydrogen energy.
