Iberdrola has signed an settlement with fertiliser firm Fertiberia to assemble the biggest inexperienced hydrogen plant for industrial use in Europe.
Iberdrola and Fertiberia might be investing €50 million ($58.5 million) within the development of the plant in Puertollano. The plant might be operational in 2021.
Iberdrola might be accountable for the manufacturing of inexperienced hydrogen from 100% renewable sources. The utility will assemble 100MW photo voltaic PV, 20MWh battery power storage and one of many largest electrolytic hydrogen manufacturing programs on the earth (20MW).
The inexperienced hydrogen produced might be used at Fertiberia’s ammonia plant in Puertollano. This plant is already probably the most environment friendly within the European Union, with a manufacturing capability of greater than 200,000 t/12 months. Fertiberia will replace and modify the plant to have the ability to use the inexperienced hydrogen produced to fabricate inexperienced fertilisers.

The mission will create as much as 700 jobs and keep away from emissions of 39,000 tCO2/12 months.
The fertiliser firm will leverage the mission to cut back pure gasoline necessities on the plant by over 10% and would be the first European firm within the sector to develop experience in large-scale inexperienced ammonia era.
Iberdrola chairman Ignacio Galán, mentioned: “Today we’re launching the primary main inexperienced hydrogen mission in Europe, demonstrating that due to renewables and technological innovation, it’s attainable to proceed to satisfy the wants of the electrification and decarbonisation of our business. The initiative exhibits the trail and alternatives provided by the power transition to develop modern initiatives as the main focus for industrialisation and employment in our nation.”
