TE H2 partners with VERBUND in Tunisia

TE H2, a joint venture between TotalEnergies and EREN Groupe, together with VERBUND, Austria’s leading electricity company, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Republic of Tunisia to study the implementation of a large green hydrogen project named ‘H2 Notos’ for export to Central Europe through pipelines.

H2 Notos aims to produce green hydrogen using electrolysers powered by large onshore wind and solar projects and supplied with desalinated sea water. The project aims to produce 200 000 tpy of green hydrogen during its initial phase, with the potential to scale up production to 1 million tpy in South Tunisia. The project will have access to the European market through the ‘SoutH2 Corridor’, a hydrogen pipeline project connecting North Africa to Italy, Austria, and Germany, which is expected to be commissioned around 2030.

TE H2, together with VERBUND, will be leading the development, financing, construction, and operation of the integrated project from the production of green electricity to the production of green hydrogen. In addition, VERBUND will coordinate the transport of the produced hydrogen towards Central Europe.
