The Polish company Hynfra, Japan’s Tsubame BHB Corporation and the Ukrainian company UTEM have signed letters of intent to construct a Green Industrial Zone introduced by the city of Bucha in Ukraine. The aim of this zone is to ensure energy independence through the use of renewable sources of energy, hydrogen and ammonia.

The Green Industrial Zone will cover 3,000 hectares. The project in Bucha will be implemented in partnership with the Ukrainian engineering company UTEM and technology suppliers from Japan, in particular Tsubame BHB.

The Green Industrial Zone project provides for the production of energy for local consumption. Hydrogen and ammonia will be produced from renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, and used further as electricity, fuel and fertilizers. The project assumptions are currently being prepared, a feasability study will follow.

Hynfra is an integrator of hydrogen technologies and will be responsible for the concept and project, Tsubame will provide the technology for the construction of green safe ammonia energy storage, and Ukrainian UTEM will carry out the development and construction process locally.

“This will be one of the most important cooperation projects involving private companies from the three countries – Ukraine, Poland and Japan. We hope that this will be an incentive for Polish and Japanese companies to cooperate in the reconstruction of Ukraine,” said advisor to the Minister of the Embassy of Japan in Ukraine Yasumasa IIjima.

Akio Miyajima, Ambassador of Japan to Poland, stressed that Poland played a central role in the reconstruction of Ukraine. “I am convinced that the first project of cooperation between Japan and Poland in Ukraine will be a symbolic example for others. I would like to express my sincere respect for the Ukrainian people, who are fighting for an international order based on freedom, democracy and international law, as well as for the future of Europe and the world,” the Ambassador said.
