A group of five leading European gas transmission system operators (TSOs) – Snam, TAG, Eustream, NET4GAS, OGE – have signed today a Collaboration Agreement with the aim of working together to enable development of cross-border infrastructure project, SunsHyne Corridor, that would allow for green hydrogen transportation from North Africa to supply German hydrogen demand, crossing and supplying Italy, Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

SunsHyne Corridor could significantly contribute to achievement of RePowerEU 10Mt green hydrogen import target as well as development of one of three RepowerEU priority import routes, namely Adriatic. It represents a fundamental energy bridge for Europe between Mediterranean shores, making available to the Union abundant, cost-competitive hydrogen resources from North Africa and exploiting for the most part existing infrastructure. The signed strategic agreement will leverage partner-TSOs technical and project-management experience to accelerate this import route development.
