to launch towards future options.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority is looking to investigate the potential for some additional shipping movements through port facilities, recently putting forward a Request for Proposals towards an assessment on Hydrogen Market Opportunities through the Prince Rupert Gateway.
The RFP posted to the BC Bid website earlier this month puts the Port's focus on the Hydrogen industry and potential service through the PRPA.
A supply chain centric market opportunity assessment covering both production and supply in North America and connecting that to demand in Asia and globally for hydrogen and hydrogen carriers including competitive context such as transportation costs, terminal capabilities and capacities for handling ammonia and potentially other 'hydrogen carriers'.
This work is intended to give PRPA an in depth understanding of the overall hydrogen market and inform decisions on the Port’s potential role in the near to long term with respect to energy transition and hydrogen regionally and globally.
