Energy corporations Total and ENGIE have partnered to design, construct and function the biggest inexperienced hydrogen manufacturing facility in France.
The Masshylia venture can be inbuilt Châteauneuf-les-Martigues within the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur South area. The web site can be constructed at Total’s La Mède biorefinery facility and can be powered by a 100MW photo voltaic PV plant.
The facility could have a complete electrolyser capability of 40MW to provide 5 tonnes of inexperienced hydrogen per day. The inexperienced hydrogen can be used to energy Total’s La Mède biorefinery, avoiding 15,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per 12 months.

Five progressive applied sciences can be built-in with the venture particularly:
- A digital piloting system for the continual provide of hydrogen with real-time administration of photo voltaic electrical energy manufacturing,
- Optimising the combination of a number of photovoltaic farms supplying the electrolyser to minimise vitality losses and restrict grid congestion,
- Large-scale hydrogen storage to stability intermittent electrical energy manufacturing and steady hydrogen consumption,
- A direct present connection between a photovoltaic farm and the electrolyser to enhance the vitality stability,
- Enhanced industrial security due to the usage of 3D digital fashions for every part of the set up.
Beyond this primary part, new renewable farms could also be developed by the companions for the electrolyser, which has the capability to provide as much as 15 tonnes of inexperienced hydrogen per day.
The development of the hydrogen facility is about to start in 2022 for manufacturing to begin in 2024.
Philippe Sauquet, president fuel, renewables & energy at Total, mentioned: “Innovation and sustainability are on the coronary heart of this joint venture. As demonstrated by our dedication to the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, we consider in the way forward for renewable hydrogen, and we’re working with our associate Engie to make it occur. This renewable hydrogen manufacturing facility, mixed with our experience in photo voltaic vitality, is an extra step in our dedication to get to net-zero by 2050.

“The Masshylia venture demonstrates the capability of Engie to fulfill the challenges of the vitality transition by creating progressive carbon-neutral options. The partnership between Engie and Total, by its scale and its very bold built-in strategy, embodies Engie’s renewable hydrogen improvement technique to cut back our purchasers CO2 footprint. It additionally paves the best way for a multi-usage renewable hydrogen hub within the close to future, strongly rooted within the area and with a global outreach,” provides Gwenaëlle Avice-Huet, Engie’s EVP in control of renewable energies.
