A forward-thinking group of private companies, municipalities and research organisations from across Europe have launched a new hydrogen initiative that is set to make Mallorca’s energy supply greener and help revive the local economy that has been affected by the Covid-crisis.
The project, which has been baptised “GREEN HYSLAND”, is in line with the new EU Hydrogen Strategy and will be the first Southern European Flagship project that creates an integrated ‘green hydrogen ecosystem’ in the Balearic Islands.
The project will include deployment of green hydrogen across the entire value chain in the island of Mallorca, spanning green hydrogen supply, local distribution by pipelines and road trailers and multiple end-user applications, including the fuel supply to a fleet of municipal buses and fuel cell rental vehicles, the generation of heat and power for commercial and public buildings, the supply of auxiliary power for port operations and the creation of a hydrogen refuelling station for cars and buses. The project also includes green hydrogen injection into the island’s gas pipeline network to decarbonise the local gas supply.
Enercy B.V., an expert consultancy in green hydrogen, had been invited to undertake the project application by Enagás, a Transmission System Operator (TSO) with 50 years’ experience in the development, operation and maintenance of energy infrastructures.
