EverWind Fuels Company (EverWind) is a private developer of green hydrogen and ammonia production, storage facilities, and associated transportation assets. EverWind's initial green hydrogen and ammonia facility is situated on an ideal site in Port Hawkesbury, benefiting from over $600 million of world-class infrastructure, including an existing ice-free deep-water port with two berths that are capable of accommodating the largest vessels in the world.

The Facility will produce green hydrogen and convert it into green ammonia using a mix of certified green power from the Nova Scotia grid and onshore wind power. Further phases of the facility will be powered by offshore wind, which enables the production of over ten million tonnes per annum of green ammonia and will be serviced by EverWind's existing marine infrastructure. To support the development of the Facility, EverWind has engaged a world-class group of partners including leading financial advisors, equipment suppliers, public and community engagement firms, and engineering firms.
