In Meirama, Naturgy, Repsol, and Reganosa will produce green hydrogen.
A project that would result in 400 direct and indirect jobs throughout the development and operation phase will require an expenditure of 46.4 million euros. The Institute for Diversity and Energy Saving, or IDAE, a central government-dependent organization, will provide 15 million euros of the total.
On the site of the former Meirama thermal power station, a 100% renewable energy electrolysis facility will be built as part of the project schedule. The future renewable hydrogen plant will start out with 30 megawatts of power and increase in capacity over time to a maximum of 200 megawatts. In its initial phase, it will produce 30,000 tons of renewable hydrogen annually, which is more than 4,000 tons per year.
The Repsol refinery in A Corua now uses conventional hydrogen, which will be replaced by the renewable hydrogen produced for industrial use. Also, it will be helpful for mobility, gas network injection to mix with natural gas, and other businesses.
