Russia – Rusatom Overseas, Air Liquide and the Government of the Sakhalin region will cooperate on a feasibility study to explore the development of low carbon hydrogen production in the Sakhalin region.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the parties is a first step in fostering the development of a hydrogen economy targeting applications in both the domestic and overseas markets.
Marilene Turcotte, General Director of Air Liquide in Russia, said: “We are delighted to explore this energy transition opportunity in cooperation with Rusatom Overseas and the Sakhalin region. This cooperation for decarbonised growth contributes to the objectives of the Sakhalin region to reach carbon neutrality by 2025.”
“In the future, the creation of a complex for the production of low-carbon hydrogen on the island of Sakhalin opens up opportunities for its export to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region,” added Evgeny Pakermanov, President of JSC Rusatom Overseas.
