Naturgy and Enagas Plan $521 Million Green Hydrogen Project in Spain

(Reuters) — Spanish utility Naturgy and gas grid operator Enagas on Tuesday unveiled a project to build a $521.47 million renewable hydrogen plant in northern Spain.

The project, scheduled to start production in 2026, will have a capacity of around 280 megawatts and will be located in La Robla, on the site of a Naturgy's thermal power plant, which closed in 2020, the two companies said in a joint statement.

Green hydrogen — hydrogen isolated from water or natural gas molecules with renewable energy — is seen as a long-term solution to decarbonizing heavy transport, including commercial shipping and airlines. Spain has signaled its ambition to become a major player, with its plentiful solar and wind power and proximity to the sea providing renewable energy options.
