Bureau Veritas becomes part of the Hydrogen Initiative AquaVentus
Feb 28 2022
With AquaVentus membership, Bureau Veritas underlines its commitment to sustainability
The AquaVentus association is pursuing a visionary project: Up to 1 million tonnes of green hydrogen are to be produced between Helgoland and Doggerbank from 2035. The initiative is supported by highly innovative organisations and research institutions as well as national and international companies. The project family around the AquaVentus initiative includes numerous projects along the value chain - from the production of hydrogen in the North Sea to its transport to customers on the mainland. These coordinated consortia synchronise demand and production and thus enable a rapid market ramp-up. Currently, the AquaVentus Support Association has 92 members.
Within an energy transition context, compliance with and assurance of sustainable new energy production, storage and distribution is a particular challenge. Bureau Veritas is a key player in the energy transition, present at main stages of the renewable and alternative energy production chain. The AquaVentus-membership is in line with Bureau Veritas` commitment to provide services and solutions dedicated to sustainability, notably in resources and production, through the BV Green Line.

By developing comprehensive expertise across the hydrogen value chain, Bureau Veritas is ready to support the decarbonization of all sectors of the economy for the benefit of people and the planet. We are therefore very pleased that we can now contribute our expertise to the AquaVentus initiative to jointly achieve the goal of producing and utilizing green hydrogen from offshore wind turbines in the North Sea. Only with the help of bundled competence we can shape a sustainable future and master the energy turnaround.
