Plans revealed for green hydrogen plant in Chile

Enel Green Power (EGP) Chile has revealed plans for a first-of-its-kind green hydrogen production plant in Chile.

Working in partnership with Chilean power company AME and prospective partners ENAP, Siemens Energy and Porsche, the project will comprise the installation of a pilot plant for green hydrogen production through an electrolyser fuelled by wind energy in Cabo Negro, north of Punta Arenas, in the Magallanes Region.

The facility is expected to be commissioned in 2022, making it the first plant of its kind to produce green hydrogen in Chile as well as one of the largest in Latin America, EGP Chile said.
