Hydrogen transport on the high seas

How the energy carrier can be produced in domestic waters and brought ashore was discussed by Dennis Wehmeyer, Head of Hydrogen & Sustainability at GASCADE, and Werner Diwald, Chairman of the Board of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (DWV) e.V., on the occasion of the Hydrogen Week 2023 in Berlin. 

Sitting on the Blue Sofa between the Bundestag and the Chancellor's Office, they discussed not only hydrogen infrastructure and storage, but also the links between renewable energies, hydrogen production, the opportunities for German and European supply security, and maintaining the economy and value creation in Germany and Europe.

EUGAL documentary: The film about the project

Planning and building EUGAL were a challenge for everyone involved. Key planning and construction steps were filmed for the EUGAL documentary film. The story is told by those actively involved in the project. Impressive scenes were produced with strong images and personal impressions. Enjoy watching it!

“EUGAL on site” Film 7: Anne Theimer and renaturation

EUGAL is in the ground and completed - but our work is far from over. Now it's about restoring and preserving a diverse ecosystem. Our colleague Anne Theimer and reporter Norman Baumgartner are on the pipeline route and in the forest to discover measures for renaturation and compensation. (in German)

“EUGAL on site” Film 6: Uta Kull and safety tests

Pipeline construction also includes material specimens, welding seam inspections, monitoring safety standards – in short, safety has top priority. A water pressure test is carried out when there is a connected pipeline string in the pipe trench. But what exactly happens in a test like this? Our colleague Uta Kull was there in person at a water pressure test on the EUGAL construction site in southern Brandenburg. (in German)

“EUGAL on site” Film 5: Martin Vogts and the pigs

The fully welded first string of EUGAL is now in the ground. All the welds have been checked, the water pressure tests have been completed, and the pipe trenches backfilled. What still has to happen so that EUGAL can be put into operation with the first string? Our colleague Martin Vogts and route reporter Norman Baumgartner meet experts who answer this question. (in German)

“EUGAL on site” Film 4: David Winkler and procedures for tunneling

“How is it possible for EUGAL to cross a conservation area, bodies of water or other forms of infrastructure?” Our colleague David Winkler addresses this question in the fourth episode of “EUGAL on site”. He travels to the state of Brandenburg to examine special construction sites, where various processes are used to conduct closed tunneling. (in German)

“EUGAL on site” Film 3: Olga Schott and the pipes

“Where exactly did the ‘I-Day’ pipe get to?” Olga Schott wonders, a year after the event in Kassel. We accompany the colleague from Controlling to Brandenburg, where she sets out in search of the signed pipe. Her journey of discovery focuses on the path taken by the EUGAL pipes from the loading station, via the storage point and then to final delivery to the pipeline route. (in German)

"EUGAL on site" Film 1: Dominik Leifer and the nature conservation along the route

Our colleague Dominik Leifer from Facility Planning goes on a journey of discovery along the EUGAL route – focusing on the environment and nature conservation. Together with route reporter Norman Baumgartner, he meets two ecological construction supervisors who tell them about their work. (in German)
