The three companies sign an agreement for the joint development of a green hydrogen plant and an associated 200 MW photovoltaic energy project in Huelva.

Cepsa, a global energy company committed to sustainable mobility and energy, Enagás Renovable, one of Europe’s largest developers of renewable gas projects, and Alter Enersun, a company dedicated to the promotion of renewable electricity generation facilities, have signed an agreement to jointly develop a green hydrogen plant in Huelva, connected to a solar power plant, as part of the Andalusian Green Hydrogen Valley. 

The new green hydrogen plant, whose electrolysis capacity will reach 200 MW, will be operational in 2026 and its production will be used to supply Cepsa’s own industrial consumption and will enable the manufacture of advanced biofuels. The photovoltaic facility will also have a capacity of 200 MW.

The synergies of the three energy companies will promote the decarbonisation of Huelva’s industry and heavy land, air and sea transport.

Alter Enersun will be responsible for developing the photovoltaic plant, which will be located on land belonging to the Port Authority of Huelva in the capital city, and Cepsa and Enagás Renovable will be responsible for the construction and commissioning of the hydrogen plant at the Cepsa Energy Park facilities in Palos de la Frontera.

The production of renewable energy next to the place where it is going to be consumed means an important optimisation of the projects and a greater use of synergies between the companies.
