Europe: Stanlow Terminals Ltd has unveiled plans to build a major open access import terminal for green Ammonia in the Port of Liverpool. The terminal, an expansion on their existing operations, will provide the necessary infrastructure to facilitate increased imports of green Ammonia into the UK. This milestone marks Essar's goal of becoming a leader in low Carbon energy innovation and production worldwide.

Green Ammonia is an incredibly versatile liquid carrier of green Hydrogen, enabling it to be transported at scale in a safe and cost-efficient manner. With the recent launch of its new terminal, the UK is now capable of importing and storing up to one million tonnes of green Ammonia every year, which can be either supplied to North West industrial customers or converted back into hydrogen for other uses.

For the UK to reach its net zero ambitions, green Hydrogen will be used to fuel marine shipping and decarbonise energy consumption across a range of industries. This shift in energy source is aimed at significantly reducing both emissions and Carbon footprint.

Stanlow Terminals is taking a major step in furthering the progress of green Ammonia production and usage. The terminal will serve as a link between international green Ammonia sources and the global hydrogen energy market, giving businesses easy access to sustainable energy commodities. Green Ammonia has already been identified as an essential component in the development of Hydrogen-powered economies, with the new terminal making this goal much more achievable.

Stanlow Terminal is now home to a new terminal, giving it a strategic edge. The terminal’s location offers an unbeatable combination of deep-water access, competitive geography and powerful infrastructure that can accommodate the largest gas carrier ships. Additionally, with direct Hynet connectivity, Stanlow Terminal can tap into the UK’s biggest and fastest low Carbon Hydrogen project.

Stanlow Terminal recently announced the launch of their latest project - the development of a green Ammonia terminal. Feasibility studies are currently underway, with operations scheduled to begin in 2027. This terminal marks an exciting new chapter in their long-term plan to become the UK’s biggest bulk liquid storage and energy infrastructure solutions provider.

Michael Gaynon, Chief Executive, Stanlow Terminals, stated, “This new terminal is the latest milestone in Stanlow Terminal’s and Essar’s ongoing commitment to leading the UK’s low carbon transformation. By investing in new energies infrastructure and building a secure supply chain of green Ammonia into the UK, we are building on our expertise in storing and blending of bulk liquids to put the North West economy at the forefront of the UK’s energy transition to net zero.”

Prashant Ruia, Director Essar Capital, stated, “Essar Energy Transition is putting the UK at the forefront of the low Carbon energy transition.  We’re excited to be sharing more detail of our investment plans.  The new terminal, provides the connecting infrastructure to enable Essar’ ambition to be a major hub of low Carbon energy innovation and a leader in production globally.”

“The Port of Liverpool is one of the world’s leading ports and we welcome Stanlow Terminals’ investment in its exciting future. Liverpool’s strategic location means it’s perfectly placed to support energy transition with exciting projects like this major new open access import terminal for green ammonia,” Claudio Veritiero, of Chief Executive Officer Peel Ports, stated.

Chris Shirling-Rooke, Chief Executive Officer of Mersey Maritime, said, “As the fastest growing maritime region in the UK, the Mersey is once again at the forefront of global maritime innovation. We welcome this announcement from Stanlow Terminals and welcome the commitment to support our environmental goals, and to see a positive impact on jobs and growth in our coastal communities.”
