Green hydrogen has become a familiar term to most of us. But what green ammonia is all about is explained on the following pages. The focus of this issue is on the safe storage, efficient transport and carbon-neutral application of these 'green gases'. Because they make an important contribution to the success of the energy transition.
The energy transition, low-carbon business and climate change are now central aspects of numerous projects, if not the very reason for them. On the Dogger Bank, for example, the world's largest offshore wind farm in the British North Sea. And at Volkswagen in Wolfsburg, where the energy supply of the future has been launched for the mobility of tomorrow. The future of mobility is also on the agenda in Baden-Württemberg, where climate-friendly road freight transport is being studied in an 18 km long real-life laboratory on the B 462 highway.
Municipal utilities and regional suppliers are also looking closely at the effects of global warming. In the reports on Franconia's arid plain and the Vendée, a department in the west of France, you can find out how different the approaches to solving the impending problems in the water supply sector can be.
What all projects and their participants and clients have in common is the will to address the issues associated with climate change and the energy transition. In all this, it is our aim to support our customers and assist them in word and deed. Like the innovative Spanish engineers at Nabrawind, who have practically turned the erection of onshore wind turbines on its head – with HFI-welded tubes from Mannesmann Line Pipe.
I wish you an inspiring and enjoyable read.
