By no means is it a question of renting an entire island for this. The issue of using only part of the land for the implementation of the project is being considered. It is also planned to create a museum on Shumshu, “she stressed.
The press secretary of the head of Sakhalin added that the parties are now discussing a hydrogen project. “To proceed to any specific actions, it is necessary to go through a number of procedures on the possibilities of using the land plot, to obtain data on wind characteristics, the availability of the required volume of water,” she explained.
Earlier, the Governor of Sakhalin Valery Limarenko said on the plans of the Danish company to lease an island in the Kuril Islands. Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners is investing in renewable energy and is looking to produce hydrogen on the island using wind power. “This does not mean that the project will definitely take place, but serious negotiations are underway, and I am reporting this to the country's leadership,” Limarenko stressed.
