Provaris Energy progresses hydrogen project in Australia
Cost estimates and solar farm design for Provaris Energy (PV1Tiwi )’s H2 hydrogen project in Australia are scheduled for April.
In Norway, pre-feasibility studies are accelerating project definition for a Nordic hydrogen plant. PV1 is preparing an EIS, social impact assessment, greenhouse gas abatement strategy, and noise evaluations for its Tiwi H2 project.
The EIS for territory and federal approval is expected in the early fourth quarter. The Northern Territory Environmental Protection Authority will complete the project’s EIS evaluation of terms of reference (ToR) next month. As the solar farm neared completion of design, capacity generation, and cost estimations, PV1 announced it would deliver its solar precinct early works program by April 2023. Draft land agreements for the Tiwi Land Council and Munupi Clan are due in the next quarter, while Solar Monitoring equipment agreements are due in the mid-2023 dry season.
In Norway, the business will fast-track project definition with Norwegian Hydrogen for a chosen Nordic site to transport hydrogen to Europe by 2027. As part of its RePowerEu Plan, Europe has set a 10-million-metric-tonne-per-annum renewable hydrogen import market objective by 2030. Few projects of scale are on the fast track to make a final investment decision (FID). Provaris stated it could meet this need across Europe to meet demand.

HHLA, a Hamburg container terminal operator, took part in hydrogen port promotion initiatives that the Hamburg Port Authority had initiated.
Wanju-gun boosts sales by 10 trillion won with hydrogen-specialized national industrial complex
The national industrial complex with a focus on hydrogen will serve as the cornerstone for regional growth in Wanju-gun, Jeonbuk.
Using the hydrogen-specialized national industrial complex, Wanju-gun conducted a press conference on the 16th, presided over by County Governor Yoo Hee-tae, and laid out a plan to draw in 100 firms and generate 10 trillion won in sales.
By 2027, Bongdong-eup will have the national industrial complex focused on hydrogen thanks to an investment of 256.2 billion won. With the help of this industrial complex, the county hopes to meet its “10-100-10,000 performance objective,” which calls for generating 10 trillion won in revenue, luring 100 hydrogen enterprises, and adding 10,000 employment.
When hydrogen firms and other investors invest in this industrial complex, the military anticipates that direct investment will total 3.84 trillion won and production inducement will total 5.9274 trillion won. 7,380 direct employment factors are also anticipated to materialize.
Germany sees first hydrogen truck registered
HyLane is leading the decarbonization of heavy goods traffic on German highways with the acceptance of the first H2 truck. The HyLane rental fleet, which will initially consist of 44 trucks and 150 are anticipated by 2024, will launch with the “XCIENT Fuel Cell” from Hyundai, the manufacturer.
Range of the Hyundai XCIENT Fuel Cell car is about 400 kilometers. Seven tanks are used to hold the hydrogen, and depending on the temperature, they can be entirely refilled in anywhere between eight and twenty minutes. A case and a tail lift are included in the vehicle’s equipment.
Spain and Portugal ratify commitment to green hydrogen
The Iberian Peninsula will work to realize the H2MED renewable hydrogen project and, specifically, the CelZa infrastructure (Celourico da Beira and Zamora) between both countries, according to the Declaration of the XXXIV Spanish-Portuguese Summit, which took place yesterday and today in Lanzarote. The goal is to make the Iberian Peninsula a net exporter of renewable hydrogen. They also concur on the need to enhance the two states’ road systems.
In particular, the 66-point language of the declaration, which Iocal consulted, states that Spain and Portugal commit to continuing to strengthen their electrical interconnections. 6522 222
The two nations also state their willingness to encourage the growth of cross-border areas by fostering population establishment and the attraction of new demographics, as well as by enhancing road accessibility. The connections between Bragança and Puebla de Sanabria, Zamora-Quintanilha, Miranda do Douro-Zamora, through Sagayo, as well as the Castelo Branco-Monfortinho-Moraleja and the international bridges Nisa-Cedillo and Alcoutim-Sanlcar de Guadiana, are cited as evidence for this.

Palma’s EMT buses use peninsula hydrogen
The plant in the Mallorcan town of Lloseta has closed due to a lack of demand, forcing the EMT of Palma to import green hydrogen for its buses from the peninsula. This situation is unaffected by the Palma City Council’s purchase of five of these vehicles from public transportation for almost five million euros under the leadership of the socialist mayor José Hila.
Earlier this year, the PSOE leadership, led by Teresa Ribera, the third vice president of the Government and minister for the ecological transition and the demographic challenge, Francina Armengol, the president of the Government, and Juan Pedro Yllanes, her vice president of Podemos, inaugurated a hydrogen plant amid much fanfare.
Chile and Peru team up to promote green hydrogen in mining
The top two copper producers in the world, Chile and Peru, joined together to create a roadmap for promoting green hydrogen (H2V) in the mining sector.
The goal is to capitalize on what is viewed as the fuel of the future to become the primary carbon-neutral mining centre in the world.
The two nations have “very favorable conditions for the generation of non-conventional renewable energy, making them a potential leader in the production of H2V,” as Peruvian minister of mining and energy Ricardo Vera stated during the online document’s debut.
Pnrr financed 36 refueling stations approved
The list of projects approved for public finance for the building of hydrogen refueling stations has been made public by the Ministry of Transportation. These 36 programs will receive governmental funding totaling more than 103.5 million euros from the National Rehabilitation and Resilience Plan (Pnrr).
Eni’s development of a station in Mestre (Venice), with contributions of 5.75 million euros, is the top project in the ranking with 88.59 points. Autostrada del Brennero, with various projects between Vipiteno, Verona, Lavis East and West, for a total of 15 million, or Milano Serravale, with proposals worth almost 10 million euros for the Carugate East and West service areas and another for almost 5.3 million for Tortona (Alessandria), are some of the other proponents.
Eni has also been able to access funds for Taranto and San Donato Milanese, but Snam, the manager of the gas pipeline, is the main proponent, with eight projects worth almost $17 million between Torrazza Piemonte (Turin), Arquata Scrivia (Alessandria), Belforte Ovada (Alessandria), Avezzano (L’Aquila), Limena (Padua), Torre d’ (Padua). Energy and oil firms like Italgas, Q8 Petroleum, and Edison stand out among the rest, as do firms involved in technical gases like Sapio (jointly with Keropetrol) and Sol.
Geographically speaking, the majority of the projects are in Northern Italy, specifically between Veneto and Trentino Alto Adige. However, other regions of Italy are also affected, including Rome, the aforementioned Bari, Taranto, and Avezzano, Tuscany’s Fosse (Arezzo), Calabria’s Lamezia Terme (Catanzaro), and Sardinia’s Sestu (Cagliari).
