Creating the infrastructure to enable efficient transmission and distribution of renewable energy is as critical as the energy itself. In the case of hydrogen, ports will play a crucial role in accelerating its deployment. According to a report co-funded by the EU, up to 42% (22 Mt, or 730 TWh) of total hydrogen demand in the EU in 2050 could be in port areas.  

In the UK, the proposed Immingham Green Energy Import Terminal will be the first of its generation, equipped with cutting-edge facilities to process imported renewable (green) ammonia and convert it into green hydrogen to fuel heavy transport. 


The proposed Immingham Green Energy Import Terminal (IGET) will be situated at one of the busiest ports in the UK. Classified as a nationally significant infrastructure project, it will play a pivotal role in the UK’s transition to a low-carbon economy. The project team, which includes Ramboll, is supporting the design of this state-of-the-art facility, encompassing a new liquid bulk terminal and associated processing and storage facilities. The team is navigating through various environmental, logistical, and navigational challenges to ensure optimal functionality while minimizing ecological impact. 

Working for Associated British Ports (ABP), Ramboll serves as the project’s Lead Designer, responsible for designing the jetty head and platform, access road, drainage, landscaping, jetty, and control buildings. Additionally, Ramboll provided mechanical, electrical, and power (MEP) services, along with fire safety and CDM Principal Designer services. 

Furthermore, Ramboll has supported the application for Development Consent and the development of documents for a design and build contract


Situated in a key location for maritime trade, the terminal will leverage Immingham’s logistical advantages to become a central hub for green energy and decarbonisation.  

As a first of its generation, it sets a precedent for future green energy import terminals and supports the critical infrastructure required in the UK for hydrogen deployment at scale.
