Naturgy, Repsol and Reganosa will create a 200 MW inexperienced hydrogen plant in A Coruña

The mission estimates on this preliminary part the creation of greater than 400 jobs The Meirama plant may have an preliminary energy of 30 MW and can be capable to generate 30,000 tons of renewable hydrogen per yr The Xunta urges the Ministry for Ecological Transition to undertake “as quickly as attainable” electrical planning evaluation

The first vp of the Xunta, Francisco Conde, met this Friday with representatives of Reganosa, Repsol and Naturgy to research the mission for the inexperienced hydrogen plant in Meirama (A Coruña), which in its first part may have a capability of 30 MW and will attain as much as 200 MW. In addition, it’s anticipated to supply 400 jobs on this preliminary part.

The renewable hydrogen plant may have an preliminary energy of 30 MW, scalable in numerous phases as much as a complete potential of 200 MW. It will produce greater than 4,000 tons of renewable hydrogen per yr in a primary part and can attain a complete manufacturing of 30,000 tons per yr.

Conde defined in statements to the media this Friday after the assembly that the Xunta “goes to expedite the method from an administrative standpoint, as soon as the request to declare the mission as a precedence enterprise initiative is submitted.”

decarbonization plan

Likewise, he pressured “the mission will enable the decarbonization of the financial system and consolidate the event of commercial initiatives in Galicia”. In addition, he has indicated that he hopes that the group will likely be “a benchmark from the standpoint of inexperienced hydrogen in Spain”.

Along these traces, he has indicated that it’s “yet another step within the power transition” and that, on this case, “it’s linked to a simply transition zone comparable to Meirama.”

The assembly was attended by the CEO of Reganosa, Emilio Bruquetas, and Repsol’s director of hydrogen, Tomás Malango, who defined that the renewable hydrogen generated will likely be used for industrial use to exchange the traditional hydrogen presently utilized by the Reganosa refinery. Repsol in A Coruña, amongst different makes use of.

In addition, Naturgy’s director of recent companies, Silvia Sanjoaquín, defined that with the primary part of the plant, it’s estimated {that a} whole of 400 jobs will likely be created, between direct and oblique positions. Thus, she has indicated that the mission is scalable “with which extra employment alternatives are anticipated.”

Regarding the deadlines, he identified that the preliminary part of the mission “is estimated that the mission will likely be underway all through 2025 and 30 MW of energy will likely be reached.”

Accelerate electrification

Conde defined that the Xunta has urged the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (Miteco) to undertake “as quickly as attainable” the evaluation {of electrical} planning, “in order that these initiatives can change into a actuality.”

In this line, he has indicated that initiatives comparable to hydrogen crops “want reinforcement and funding throughout the infrastructure of the electrical energy community in Spain.” In addition, he has identified the significance of the modifications within the distribution and transport networks.

The first vp has indicated that it’s “a precedence” and that the Xuunta has despatched a report back to the Miteco “during which the funding wants are detailed.”

Thus, he has insisted that “the earlier this variation is made, the earlier we will accompany these initiatives, not solely from the executive standpoint however from that of wants”.

Green Hydrogen Industry Alliance

On the opposite hand, the primary vp has indicated that through the assembly held this Friday the structure of the Green Hydrogen Industrial Alliance has additionally been mentioned, a mission that’s being promoted by the Xunta.

Thus, he recalled that his goal is to place Galicia from the standpoint of the technology of inexperienced hydrogen, in addition to its attainable industrial makes use of.

Conde has insisted that the completely different firms which are growing initiatives in the neighborhood, technological and analysis facilities, amongst others, will kind a part of this future alliance. In this manner, he has indicated that Naturgy, Reganosa and Repsol “might also be part of this mission”.
