Egbert Vrijen leads the realisation of the ACE Terminal, a joint project of Gasunie, HES International and Royal Vopak, in which they combine forces and knowledge to develop a terminal in the port of Rotterdam for the import of ammonia as a green hydrogen carrier.
Vrijen has 20 years of experience in capital-intensive industry, especially in the energy sector. He mostly led large-scale projects. In his previous role, he was project director of Athos, focused on capture, transport, storage and reuse of CO2 in the North Sea Canal region. Previously, he headed the Tender Management & Estimating department at Bluewater Energy Services and before that he was project manager for energy transition at Stadsverwarming Purmerend.
Hydrogen will play an important role in the energy transition. ACE Terminal wants to facilitate the large-scale import of ammonia as a green hydrogen carrier for customers in Northwest Europe.
