The energy concern RWE and the company VTG, which specializes in wagon leasing and the provision of transport and logistics services, have signed an agreement of intent to organize the transportation of imported “green” ammonia from the future port terminal in Brunsbüttel (Schleswig-Holstein) to consumers in Germany and neighboring countries. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to zdmira.


The option of delivering this material by rail in tank cars is more convenient for industrial enterprises, since it does not require connection to pipelines or access to inland waterways.

The use of ammonia is promising in terms of the decarbonization of many industrial processes. RWE plans to build a terminal at Brunsbüttel in anticipation of growing imports of ammonia as a feedstock for hydrogen energy. Within the framework of the signed agreement, RWE and VTG will develop a logistics concept for supplying consumers with this material, using VTG’s experience in the field of transporting liquid ammonia in tank cars.
