Provaris signs MOU with Total Eren for co-operation on green hydrogen projects


Total Eren is specialised in the development, financing, construction, operation and maintenance over the long-term of renewable energy power plants (mainly solar and wind) worldwide. In particular, Total Eren is working on several large-scale green hydrogen projects globally, including in Latin America (Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia), in Australia, and in Africa (Morocco, Egypt and Mauritania).

The MOU provides a framework for Provaris and Total Eren to work together on the identification and assessment of green hydrogen projects currently developed by Total Eren that can utilize Provaris’ GH2 Carriers for bulk transport of compressed hydrogen in markets that require imported volumes of pure gaseous green hydrogen.

“Total Eren is an ambitious renewable energy company with a global portfolio of green hydrogen projects under development for import into markets that include Europe and Asia. Provaris managing director and chief executive Martin Carolan said. “Our discussions with Total Eren over time have identified a strong alignment on the commercial and technical benefits of compression for the storage and transport of hydrogen, and we look forward to a closer relationship to facilitate and accelerate the delivery of the first fleet of GH2 Carriers.”

  • The scope of the co-operation agreement will include the identification and assessment of:
  • Opportunities for the import of hydrogen into Europe using Provaris’ GH2 carriers.
  • Opportunities for the import of hydrogen into Asia using Provaris’ GH2 carriers.
  • Opportunities for a bulk compressed hydrogen storage solution, utilising design concepts developed by Provaris for a floating storage.

Total Eren and Provaris have identified project opportunities for further technical and commercial feasibility to be progressed. Subject to the outcomes of each project feasibility key terms would be agreed on the participation and role of each party.
