ACCIONA Energía and Plug Power have presented to the Government of Navarra their €87m Valle H2V Navarra joint project to build an industrial-scale, green hydrogen production plant in Rocaforte, Sangüesa.
The project, currently in the development stage, plans to start generating green hydrogen by the end of 2024.
It involves the construction of a 25MW electrolyser on the land plots adjacent to the Sangüesa biomass plant. The electrolyser will be powered by hybrid renewable energy produced at a photovoltaic plant (25MW) and a wind farm (24MW), both newly built facilities that are currently under development.
Once built, the plant will reach a total production of 3,880 tonnes of green hydrogen per year. The aim is to use 90% of the green hydrogen production for consumption by the main energy-intensive industries in the area, such as paper, glass, steel, food and automotive, contributing to their decarbonisation and the reduction of their CO2 emissions, including Plug Power’s customers in material handling, stationary power, and on-road mobility applications. The remaining 10% will be used for the transport sector through the installation of a hydrogen station at the same location.
