Storage specialist develops solid energy

The South Holland made (medio 2015) 2,1 million euro subsidy available for companies who outshine in innovative durability projects.

Proton Ventures, based in Schiedam, sent in 3 project ideas and got rewarded by three subsidies. Proton targeted as storage specialist previously mainly on storage of ammonia, hydrochloric acid and lpg. Director Hans Vrijenhoef wants to make the harbor of Schiedam, and preferably whole Schiedam, durable with among other things ‘liquid’ electric energy.


Proton Ventures sponsor of the Roparun

The Roparun is a relay race of approximately 520 kilometres from Paris and 560 kilometres from Hamburg to Rotterdam, in which people work as a team to give a combined sports performance in order to raise money for people who suffer from cancer. You could also call it an adventure for life. This is also clear from the motto, which has been the same for many years: “Add life to the days, where often days can no longer be added to the life”.

Just like last year Proton Ventures is sponsor of one of the Roparun teams, team De Challengers (teamnr. 254). The Roparun takes place on May 14, 15 and 16.
