Russia, China prepare to cooperate on Snezhinka hydrogen-powered station
Russia and China plan to sign an agreement on cooperation at the Snezhinka Arctic station. Powered by hydrogen, Snezhinka will be located in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area, according to Russian Ambassador-at-Large Nikolai Korchunov.
“Cooperation was discussed extensively at the recent round of Russian-Chinese consultations on the Arctic on September 7 in Moscow. The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology designated Harbin Engineering University as a partner for Russia’s coordinator in the development of the Snezhinka station. A draft cooperation agreement has been agreed upon with China. The date and place of signing the agreement are being discussed. Any interested research and education organizations, as well as Chinese companies, are welcome to join the project,” he said.
He added that Russia is open to developing mutually beneficial research cooperation in the Arctic and is ready to explore potential proposals from other countries who are willing to cooperate on the Snezhinka project.
