Smartenergy has actually received grant develop a 200MWe green hydrogen plant in Sardinia, Italy.

The Swiss investment firm has gotten authorization from the Sassari Provincial Industrial Consortium for the construction of a 3-phase project, which will certainly be finished by 2030.

The plant will certainly be located in the Porto Torres industrial complicated.

Smartenergy nation supervisor for Italy Massimo Poli said: "This enthusiastic project is in line with Smartenergy's financial investment approach.

" We are especially pleased to have the opportunity to redevelop a large area such as Porto Torres, which has actually been harmed by years of intensive exploitation by the petrochemical market for refining hydrocarbons.

" We will certainly contribute to restore the location by bringing new value and also green technology for the benefit of the Sardinian community."

The H2 Porto Torres project will certainly develop a Solar + Wind + Green H2 energy ecosystem in the commercial area of Porto Torres, taking advantage of existing and also under-development renewable resource sources with an overall capacity of as much as 500MWp.

When completely developed, H2 Porto Torres production is anticipated to provide "a blend of green Hydrogen" to hard-to-abate industries, a facility to generate green methanol for export and also e-fuels for the aeronautics as well as shipping field.

The project, according to the 2030 targets for decarbonisation and also mixing of green hydrogen into the gas grid, will certainly be created in 3 phases (target capacity between 20MWe approximately 200MWe), with approximated shipment dates between 2026 and 2030.

Smartenergy will certainly begin allowing activities in the initial fifty percent of 2023.
