SCI signs MOU to deliver decarbonised hydrogen locally
Earlier this week, SCI subsidiary Sembcorp Utilities signed a strategic collaboration Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Japan’s Chiyoda Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation, to explore the feasibility and implementation of a commercial-scale supply chain to deliver decarbonised hydrogen into Singapore.
The delivery will utilise Chiyoda’s proven hydrogen storage and transportation technology “SPERA Hydrogen”, which is able to release hydrogen from Methylcyclohexane (MCH1) safely for commercial use.
This MOU represents a strategically important step in the potential creation of a commercial-scale global supply chain for decarbonised hydrogen into Singapore.
The parties intend to undertake joint efforts to explore the most cost-effective hydrogen production in offshore locations for subsequent hydrogenation in these selected locations, and to ultimately ship MCH to Singapore for use.
