Iberdrola is leading a project in Aragón to produce green hydrogen by building a hydrogenerator at the PLAZA Logistics Platform in Zaragoza.
It wil have 10 MW of electrolysers capable of producing and supplying green hydrogen to heavy road transport vehicles.
This facility, which will be open to the public, represents an investment of more than €36 million and will include building a photovoltaic power plant for self consumption which, as well as supplying renewable energy to Iberdrola, will allow the plant to use only zero-emissions electricity.
The aim of this project is to generate and supply green hydrogen to heavy road transport vehicle fleets, buses, light private and industrial vehicles, and the railway sector and projected airport use. It also includes renewable hydrogen storage and dispensing stations in nearby areas with potential for consumption in Zaragoza and Valle del Aragón.
Iberdrola is leading the initiative – which it has submitted to the EU’s Next Generation programme – that will be carried out in association with Aragon’s institutions and companies that have shown interest in the project. These include the regional government, Zaragoza and Jaca City Councils, the Aragón Hydrogen Foundation, the University of Zaragoza, the Aragón Automobile Cluster, the Zaragoza Area Transport Consortium and companies Zoilo Ríos, Carreras Grupo Logístico, Calvera, Inycom (Instrumentación y Componentes), Arpa and CAF, as well as PLAZA, the site on which the facility will be built.
