Enerfin, a wind power subsidiary of Elecnor, plans to build a green hydrogen production plant in the Outer Port of A Coruña, in Punta Langosteira, Spain.
Enerfin has submitted an application to the Port Authority of A Coruna for an administrative concession to build and operate a green hydrogen production plant called ‘Green H2 Langosteira’. The company expect that the plant will become operational by the end of 2023, producing green hydrogen through electrolysis using water and renewable power. The plan also includes building a refuelling station for hydrogen vehicles.
The hydrogen will be used across various applications, such as the transport of heavy vehicles and port machinery with a fuel cell or industrial processes. These end-use applications will help achieve a significant reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
The Green H2 Langosteira project is part of the “A Coruna Green Port” initiative with the goal to become a decarbonisation hub and a reference point for the supply of green hydrogen in the region.
If successful, the plant will make the Outer Port of A Coruna one of the first European ports to integrate a generation plant and a renewable hydrogen refuelling station into its facilities.
Enerfín has over 20 years of experience in promoting, developing, constructing, and exploiting renewable energy projects globally. It operates 1,227 MW of wind energy in total spreading over Spain (495 MW), Brazil (632 MW) and Canada (100 MW) with a production of 3,500 GWh /year.
