Engás Renovable and Naturgy have unveiled plans for a 280MW renewable hydrogen production plant on the site of Naturgy’s former thermal power plant in La Robla, Spain.
Set to be operational in 2026, the plant demands an investment of €485m and aims to avoid more than 430,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere.
Maximum capacity of the plant was initially set at 60MW, but with demands from potential industry consumers in the area, and its proximity to the future hydrogen pipeline backbone, its output could be increased to 280MW. The companies claim an increased capacity will help reduce the costs of renewable hydrogen production, which will be a competitive advantage for local and regional companies.
Antón Martínez, Engás Renovable CEO, said, “This project reinforces our commitment to the energy transition and will support the decarbonisation of industries in the area, which will also be able to benefit from the efficiencies generated by the increase in production capacity.”
