Hanseatic Energy Hub announces Partners Group as a new shareholder

Hanseatic Energy Hub (HEH) is pleased to announce that Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, has taken a shareholding in the company on behalf of its clients.

Partners Group will support HEH towards the construction and operation of its state-of-the-art LNG terminal in an industrial area near the city of Stade, Germany, in the vicinity of the Port of Hamburg.

The LNG terminal is planned to have a regasification capacity of 12 bcm/a and will offer send-out to the German gas grid and for local consumption. It will also enable reloading to LNG tankers, river barges for bunkering, trucks and on-site rail.

The terminal will be built in an existing industrial park, allowing the terminal to use waste heat from an industrial partner onsite. This synergy will further improve the environmental footprint of the site.

The industrial park has one of the largest electrical substations in Germany, which distributes a large volume of electricity from offshore wind farms in the North Sea. This makes Stade a good location for future energies – particularly hydrogen and bio-LNG. These can be produced or imported to the site and further processed.

Hanseatic Energy Hub launched its Open Season 9. December 2020. Danielle Stoves, Commercial & Regulatory Director of Hanseatic Energy Hub, comments: “We have already signed letters of intent with nine global market players earlier this year and market interest continues to grow. With Partners Group onboard, we can now concentrate further on engaging with the market to develop and sign terminal user agreements.”
