EverWind announces partnership with Eastward Energy for domestic transportation and supply of Green Hydrogen in Nova Scotia


Halifax – EverWind Fuels Company, a pioneering developer of green hydrogen and ammonia production in Atlantic Canada, has announcedthe signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Nova Scotia-based energy distribution company Eastward Energy, marking a significant initial step towards making green hydrogen available in Nova Scotia.

The partnership between EverWind and Eastward Energy signifies a mutual commitment to sustainable energy solutions that reduce carbon emissions and promote environmental stewardship in Nova Scotia.

The MOU includes joint collaboration opportunities to develop and scale up the hydrogen value chain in Nova Scotia including building demand by blending hydrogen with natural gas to reduce emissions. Eastward Energy and EverWind will also collaborate to explore opportunities for the storage, transportation, and distribution of green hydrogen.

John Hawkins, President of Eastward Energy stated: “The future of energy is changing and we’re changing with it. Our sights are set on developing sustainable energy solutions like green hydrogen that will support Nova Scotia’s transition to net-zero emissions and lead to an energy future that’s clean. Eastward Energy’s hydrogen-ready gas distribution system, supported by large-scale green hydrogen projects like EverWind’s, will enable an accelerated energy transition in Nova Scotia.”

Commented Trent Vichie, CEO of EverWind Fuels: “We are excited to partner with Eastward Energy in our mission to accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen in Nova Scotia. This is a first step toward setting up the supply chains necessary to transition Nova Scotia’s energy sectors from imported fossil fuels to locally produced clean fuels.”

EverWind has received the first Environmental Approval in North America for a large-scale green hydrogen project, and is well progressed in design, engineering, and development for the first phase of both its green energy generation projects and the production facility costing an estimated $6 billion at Point Tupper which will convert this energy into green hydrogen and green ammonia. EverWind owns and operates the deepest ice-free berth on the East Coast of North America at Point Tupper.
