Alpiq, Campillo Palmera, and Ecoinversol have joined forces to spearhead a green hydrogen initiative that promises to revolutionize transportation and industry in Molina de Segura, Murcia. Known as “Almolina H2 SL,” this ambitious project is currently in the early engineering and permitting phases, with a target to commence construction by the end of 2024.
At the heart of this visionary initiative lies a 10 MW electrolyzer, fueled by dedicated solar photovoltaic energy. To ensure alignment with the European taxonomy of green hydrogen, Alpiq Energía España will supply additional energy through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) sourced from 100% renewable resources.
The Almolina H2 SL project is expected to yield approximately 1,200 tons of green hydrogen annually. This substantial production will play a pivotal role in reducing CO2 emissions, offsetting around 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. It’s a significant step towards environmental sustainability.
A key goal of this initiative is to revolutionize freight transportation in the region. Molina de Segura, strategically positioned in the Mediterranean Corridor, plays a critical role in national and international goods transportation. The project’s success could lead to a sustainable logistics center powered by green hydrogen.
Campillo Palmera, as part of its commitment to this green vision, plans to establish a green hydrogen refueling station within its logistics facilities. This station will serve not only its own fleet but also other interested entities. Moreover, the company has set its sights on introducing fuel cell-powered trucks by 2026, marking a significant shift towards hydrogen mobility.
The Almolina H2 SL initiative aims to set a new standard in clean energy and establish Molina de Segura as a hub for sustainable logistics in Europe. By harnessing the power of green hydrogen, it aspires to fuel a future where transportation is environmentally friendly, economically viable, and socially responsible.
As the project advances towards its construction phase, it symbolizes Spain’s commitment to embracing innovative solutions to reduce carbon emissions and drive sustainable development. The Almolina H2 SL project is not just a local endeavor; it’s a testament to the potential of green hydrogen to transform industries and transportation on a global scale.
