Group led by CIP to construct the first phase of a 2-GW green Hydrogen project in Spain

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

In the northern Spanish area of Aragon, a partnership led by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) is developing the first stage of a 2-GW green hydrogen and green ammonia project.

 

CIP announced on Tuesday that it has formed a partnership with Enagas SA, Naturgy, Fertiberia, and Vestas Wind Systems A/S, a Danish wind turbine manufacturer, to complete the first phase of Project Catalina. These businesses have now signed a letter of intent outlining their willingness to collaborate. Each partner's specific participation is still to be defined.

 

Catalina Phase I is now in advanced development and is expected to be fully built and permitted in less than two years, with construction beginning in late 2023. With 1.7 GW of wind and solar power, it plans to develop a 500-MW electrolyzer that will produce more than 40,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year. At the same time, a pipeline connecting Aragon and Valencia will transmit green hydrogen to a newly constructed 200,000-tonne-per-year green ammonia plant.

 

“The green ammonia generated by this consortium will be used as feedstock to produce green fertilizers at the Grupo Fertiberia’s plant in Sagunto, next to industrial uses of this highly efficient carbon-free molecule. Sagunto will thus become the Group’s third plant to use a renewable feedstock, after Puertollano and Palos de la Frontera, and will be 100% decarbonized, demonstrating our company’s firm commitment to the ecological transition in the agricultural sector,” said Javier Goni, CEO of Grupo Fertiberia.
