iberdrola Introduced in the presence of King Felipe VI, its green hydrogen production plant that will supply fertiberia for the manufacture of ammonia, the first stone of a project with which horizon to 2027 And it predicts an investment of 2,000 million euros that will be extended to the Palos de la Frontera plant (Huelva).
In order to achieve the stated objectives, as explained in the presentation, it will be necessary that 200 identical plants in Puertolano in 2030,
The plant will produce 360 kg of green hydrogen up to 3,000 tonnes per hour, avoiding the emission of 48,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere and covering an area of 7 hectares which is a reality after 15 months of construction.
It has a building that receives energy produced at a photovoltaic plant located a few kilometers away, from where it travels to the electrolyser building, the heart of the plant.
From there, the hydrogen is stored until stable conditions are achieved for its transport and can finally be sent to Ferriberia to be used in the manufacture of ammonia. In addition, a dozen wind turbines serve to cool the water in the process and allow construction.
Iberdrola has selected the European company Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser – a division of Nel ASA – as its preferred supplier. Manufacture of hydrogen production system by electrolysisWhich will be based on its proton PEM solution.
For its part, the Basque company Elecnor has taken over the electrical assembly of the Puertollano plant and will supply materials such as electrical panels and cabinets, supports, conduits and lighting; While Construcciones Electromecánicas Consonni will manufacture medium voltage equipment at its plant in Bilbao.
Objective, “not dependent on third parties”
company president, Ignacio Sanchez GalanIt has been in charge of introducing the act to value the country’s “need” for indigenous energy sources “so as not to rely on third parties.”
A strategy that demonstrates, in his words, how Iberdrola “invests in decarbonization” when it comes to producing energy for hydrogen, “one of the technologies that makes it possible to eliminate emissions in high-temperature industrial processes.” manufactures” as well as in transportation, production of fossil-free raw materials.
A plant designed by the hands of “a multitude of Spanish companies” who contributed electronics, along with the Rigid Photovoltaic Plant or Fertiberia, is now committed to hydrogen as an energy source for its manufacturing process.
This new factory would not have been possible without the work of Cummings, a Norwegian company supplying electrolysers. Largest factory in Europe is introduced in Guadalajara,
All are used to create “the first phase of a more ambitious project” with an investment of 2,000 million euros to “replace natural gas with the Sun”, for example, the production of ammonia.
At this point, he has become convinced that the public administration considers a “virtuous cycle of clean energy” to be “self-sustaining” and to generate “quality training and employment” with “the development of these projects”.
“Let us continue to make Spain a leader in future areas such as renewable energy, green hydrogen or the ammonia it will produce,” he concluded.
