The head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexei Chekunkov, said that Korea is interested in the Far East as a supplier of hydrogen. The republic expresses great interest in the transition to this type of fuel.

As the TASSChekunkov is confident that the Far East has the necessary resources and can become an exporter.

“We will study this topic and use the industrial competences of Korean partners, technological competencies to create new industrial production, including within the industrial park in Primorye,” the minister said.

The industrial park is planned to be created jointly with the Korean company LH Corporation. 30 Korean companies have already expressed their interest in obtaining the status of a park resident. Chekunkov said that he also considers tidal energy to be a promising area. Speaking about the project of the Tugurskaya tidal power plant in the Khabarovsk Territory, he noted that this project requires detailed study and detailed calculations.

In his opinion, this project requires international cooperation.

“Such a project can be launched only if we have guaranteed sales markets for our products. Because there is nowhere to sell electricity from there, it will need to be processed. By processing it, for example, into hydrogen, or into computing, into large data centers, or into chemical energy-intensive products, ”he said.

The construction of a tidal power plant in the Tugursky Bay is a Soviet project that has not been developed due to the capital intensity of construction and the unresolved issue of exports. Combining the plant with hydrogen production can have a synergistic effect. The produced hydrogen could replace the traditional hydrocarbon feedstock for redundant CHPPs, and such "green" hydrogen can be a demanded product for export.
