Sweco and Gasunie transform infrastructure for renewable energy transport


The Netherlands – Sweco has embarked on a transformative journey with Dutch energy operator Gasunie to revolutionize the energy landscape.

Gasunie, a key player in the Netherlands and northern Germany, is transitioning from natural gas to renewable alternatives like hydrogen, CO2, and heat. With a substantial investment of EUR 280 million over the next decade, Gasunie aims to overhaul its infrastructure, marking a significant step towards a sustainable energy future.

Gasunie’s initiative seeks to realign its operations with the growing demand for renewable gas. By investing in the adaptation of existing pipelines and the development of new infrastructure, Gasunie aims to create a robust network capable of transporting hydrogen and other renewable gases. The ultimate goal is to facilitate the transition to a cleaner, greener energy ecosystem, aligning with broader European efforts towards sustainability.

Unlocking new opportunities

Central to Gasunie’s strategy is the utilization of advanced technology to enable the seamless integration of renewable energy sources. Sweco, with its expertise in consultancy and engineering, will play a pivotal role in designing and implementing innovative solutions. From hydrogen transport systems to district heating networks, Sweco and Gasunie are at the forefront of leveraging cutting-edge technology to drive the energy transition forward.

The collaboration between Sweco and Gasunie holds immense potential to reshape the energy landscape in the Netherlands and beyond. By preparing existing pipelines and infrastructure for hydrogen, Gasunie aims to unlock new opportunities for renewable energy utilization.
