Eni, and Ferrovie Nord Milano (FNM), Italian public transport company, signed a letter of intent to accelerate the energy transition and to promote the decarbonization of transport in Lombardy through the new energy sources, according to Eni’s press release.
Both partners will focus on introducing fuels and energy vectors which can reduce CO2 emissions in transport vehicles, working on capture, storage, and using of CO2 produced during hydrogen production processes. This in addition to introducing hydrogen distribution points for private road mobility.
The collaboration is also part of the H2iseO project of FNM and Trenord, a company owned by FNM. The project targets making Sebino and Valcamonica the first Italian ‘Hydrogen Valley’ to achieve decarbonization targets for the transport sector.
About the agreement, FNM President, Andrea Gibelli, said: “The agreement with Eni is very much in line with the pathway towards zero environmental impact mobility that FNM promotes. The Group’s new mission, enshrined in the guidelines of the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, sees us commit to developing an integrated mobility services platform based on certain environmental and economic sustainability criteria.”
For his part, Eni’s Chief Operating Officer Energy Evolution, Giuseppe Ricci, said that “the collaboration with FNM is an important step in the pathway to decarbonizing transport in Lombardy.”
