The first renewable hydrogen plant in the Region of Murcia will be built by Repsol, Enagás Renovable, and Engie in Valle de Escombreras, in Cartagena.
The plant, which will cost about 215 million euros, will be built next to the Repsol industrial site in Cartagena. It is intended to make it possible to inject renewable hydrogen into the current natural gas network by building a collector to the Enagás liquefied natural gas port. Engie will utilise it for heat purposes in its industrial processes, on the other hand.
In Spain right now, Repsol is both a major producer and user of hydrogen. With investments totaling more than 2,500 million euros in projects across the full hydrogen value chain through 2030, it published its roadmap to dominate the renewable hydrogen industry in the Iberian Peninsula last year.
