Repsol to develop Spanish hydrogen facility


Repsol to develop Spanish hydrogen facility

Repsol, Naturgy and Reganosa will jointly develop a renewable hydrogen production centre in Galicia. - ReNews

The project involves the installation of an electrolysis plant powered by 100% renewable energy on the grounds of the former Meirama thermal power plant in the municipality of Cerceda.

The renewable hydrogen plant will have an initial capacity of 30MW, scalable in different phases up to a total potential of 200MW.

It will produce more than 4000 tonnes of renewable hydrogen per year in the first phase and reach a total production of 30,000 tonnes per year.

The renewable hydrogen generated will be destined for industrial use to replace the conventional hydrogen currently used by the Repsol refinery in A Coruna. Other industries, such as mobility will use the renewable hydrogen, and it will be injected into the gas grid to be mixed with natural gas.

This project is part of Repsol's renewable hydrogen strategy in Galicia and is a milestone in the transformation of the A Coruna refinery into a multienergy hub that provides decarbonized products to society.

All these uses will reduce the area’s carbon footprint and demonstrate the feasibility of mass production of renewable hydrogen and its distribution to the end consumer.

Renewable hydrogen is one of the pillars of Repsol's strategy to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

This project will accelerate the introduction of hydrogen in sectors such as energy, industry and transport, in addition to having a great impact on the local economy, in a fair transition site such as Meirama.
