A Spanish port authority with a consortium of 13 companies has submitted a proposal under ‘Digital H2 Green’ project to the European Green Deal call under the Horizon 2020 Programme.
The Port of Malaga plans to use its infrastructure to produce green hydrogen and ammonia to be supplied locally for fuelling hydrogen-powered vehicles and ships. The pilot project will be built at the Buran Terminal and will use artificial intelligence to manage the project’s efficiency.
Carlos Rubio, the President of the Port Authority, said that the port is committed to promoting sustainable activity and has been working since 2019 on the Green Port initiative.
Ramón Carrasco, the President of Buran Energy, said that the use of artificial intelligence would make the project innovative.
The Digital H2 Green (DH2Green) is joined by 13 national and international companies and led by the Port Authority of Malaga and Buran Energy.
The project’s technical management will be handled by French companies Azcatec and Emdelen and the Netherlands McValnera and Riverlake Solutions. H2B2 will supply the electrolysers. The final end-users would be Valoriza Servicios Medioambientales and Oil Distribution Terminals (ODT).
The other companies include RQuantech, Málagaport, Hispano Aeronáutica, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (the Agustín Betancourt Foundation).
