DNV has been awarded four frame contracts with Energinet TSO for “green deal” work on the Danish transmission gas grid in relation to PtX (Power to X). Projects supporting PtX in Denmark follow the European Green Deal strategy for decarbonization. A key part of this will be the ability of gas networks to transport low-carbon energy carriers such as hydrogen and other PtX gases, which require new or re-purposed infrastructure. PtX will be essential to tackle the hard-to-abate sectors in Europe, that cannot be electrified, by converting green power to hydrogen, ammonia, E-Fuels, for example.
DNV was selected as the preferred supplier on one frame agreement and will lead the work scopes with authorities, regulations and standards. The green deal contract award on PtX will deliver further insights from the industry and reinforce DNV and Energinet TSO’s long-standing collaboration for sharing critical knowledge and managing major risks.
DNV already provides advisory services with multiple engagements under the green deal preferred supplier framework contract, and has extensive experience running and/or advising on successful projects on hydrogen infrastructure and regulation.
