bp, Iberdrola and Enagás to study large-scale green hydrogen facility in Valencia

April 28, 2021 |

In Spain, bp, Iberdrola and Enagás have reached an agreement to study the development of the first phase of the largest green hydrogen production project in the Valencian Community, which would be developed at the bp plant in Castellón.

The purpose of this agreement is to evaluate the installation of a 20 megawatt (MW) electrolyzer for the generation of green hydrogen on land owned by bp in the El Serrallo industrial estate. The electrolyzer would work with renewable energy produced, among other generation sources, by a 40 MW photovoltaic plant.

The bp refinery in Castellón is the largest producer and consumer of hydrogen in the Valencian Community. This new project would allow the replacement of gray hydrogen, which the refinery uses in its processes to produce biofuels, with green hydrogen. In this way, CO 2 emissions would be reduced by up to 24,000 tons per year, thus contributing to their decarbonization.

The project also contemplates exploring additional value-added uses for the green hydrogen produced, such as supplying it to the heavy transport sector and contributing to the decarbonization of other energy-intensive industries in the area.
