Today, German LNG Terminal organised its fourth “Klönschnack” event at the Hotel Hamburger Hof in Brunsbüttel. The format has established itself as a fixed point of contact where neighbours can ask their questions about the project. We particularly appreciate the regular, direct dialogue on site.

The past few days were characterised by good discussions with domestic and foreign guests, experts and interested parties. It began with an intensive exchange of ideas on the hydrogen economy with the Schleswig-Holstein Economic Development and Technology Transfer Agency (WTSH) in Kiel.

And the next morning, we received a visit from Berlin: the energy and infrastructure specialists from the Dutch embassy came to find out about the current status of this European project.

Excellent, forward-looking discussions with our partner team from ConocoPhillips from Norway, London and the USA to bring them up to date.

Beyond the day, the focus was also on the prospects at the site in order to systematically advance the low-fossil and fossil-free future through mutual learnings.
