Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Meyer calls for more investment in energy projects from the federal government

Schwerin (dpa/mv) - In order to ensure energy security in East Germany, the Economics Minister of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is calling for more investment and support from the federal government. "In the course of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, the supply of crude oil to eastern Germany in particular has gotten into a critical situation. It must not stay that way," said SPD politician Reinhard Meyer on Monday. In Schwedt, Brandenburg, a federal-state group had exchanged views on the future of the local refinery. Meyer campaigned again for the Rostock location in order to land crude oil there, process it and pump it to Schwedt via an existing pipeline.

In addition, Meyer sees potential for the port of Rostock in particular. In addition to a terminal for importing liquefied natural gas and the already planned settlement of plants for the production and processing of hydrogen, the seaport and the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis have applied to the federal government for the construction and operation of a development platform for fuels that are produced with electricity . If the minister has his way, a test field for offshore wind power technologies should also be built off Warnemünde.

"The upcoming tasks are of national importance and in the national interest. Here we need the support of the federal government in order to be able to successfully implement the project as quickly as possible," said Meyer. The extent to which the federal government is willing to invest in the north-east remains to be seen. When it comes to LNG terminals, Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbüttel on the North Sea have so far come into their own.
