HyDeal Spain, the first industrial implementation of the HyDeal Ambition platform VINCI Construction (in collaboration with its Cobra unit), Técnicas Reunidasand Power China Guizhou Engineering to produce the technical design, architecture and supply chain of the first plants of HyDeal España. The three companies will work to develop the highest performing and most cost-effective solar-to-hydrogen systems to produce HyDeal España’s renewable hydrogen based on ambitious, pre-agreed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) cost targets. HyDeal España and the EPC companies are supported by TSK as the owner’s engineer.
Announced in February 2022, HyDeal España is an industrial joint venture founded by ArcelorMittal, Enagás, Grupo Fertiberia and DH2 Energy. HyDeal España will supply competitive renewable hydrogen from plants in northern Spain to an industrial complex in Asturias. The total installed capacity is expected to reach 9.5 GW of solar power and 7.4 GW of electrolyzers. Production is scheduled to start by the end of 2025, producing about 150,000 tons of renewable hydrogen per year from 2026 and reaching 330,000 tons in 2030. ArcelorMittal and Group Fertiberia announced their intention to join with other major buyers to agree to supply 6.6 million tons of renewable hydrogen over 20 years.
VINCI Construction (together with its Cobra division), Técnicas Reunidas and PowerChina Guizhou Engineering will present their first technical and economic proposals later this year. After this basic design phase, HyDeal España will validate the final EPC companies responsible for the execution of the Design Engineering Project (FEED) and the Subsequent Project Execution (EPC). During the subsequent design engineering and project execution phases, the selected EPC companies will work closely with TSK to complete the development and construction of HyDeal’s renewable hydrogen production facilities in España, forming the largest integrated renewable and competitive hydrogen hub in Europe will. They will work with OEMsalong the supply chain, in particular manufacturers of electrolysers, to ensure competitive GW-scale equipment supply and promote a Europe-based industry.
Thierry Lepercq, Executive Chairman of the joint venture and spokesman for HyDeal Ambition, states: “We are proud to be backed by four world-class EPC companies who share our goal of delivering competitive, mass-produced green hydrogen in record time. This is a clear vote of confidence in the HyDeal model and excellent news for all energy consumers in Spain and beyond looking for safe and competitive alternatives to fossil fuels at a critical time in energy markets“.
Hugues Seutin, Head of Hydrogen Business at VINCI Construction Grands Projets: “We are honored to have been selected by HyDeal Espana to carry out the first phase of this major green hydrogen project. This project is key to decarbonizing industry and creating a green hydrogen economy in Spain. We are more determined than ever to find the innovations and solutions that will enable HyDeal España to achieve green hydrogen cost leadership.”
Arturo Crossley, Deputy CEO and Commercial and Strategic Director of Técnicas Reunidas, explains “The world needs more energy and fewer emissions. Green hydrogen is a key energy carrier that will drive a change of course to reduce global emissions and achieve carbon neutrality. For Técnicas Reunidas, it is an honor to have been selected to participate in HyDeal España, an initiative that will help position Spain and its industry as a relevant player in decarbonization and sustainable energy production worldwide.”
Power China Guizhou Engineering
Mr. Wang Yuanhui, General Manager of PowerChina Guizhou stated: “The era of green hydrogen begins. PowerChina Guizhou Engineering Co.Ltd. is honored to be a pioneer in this promising “green hydrogen era” by participating in HyDeal España, a world-leading and demonstrative green hydrogen project. We will wholeheartedly contribute Chinese wisdom and power to the success of the project“.
Joaquín García, CEO of TSK, explains: “We are proud to be part of this great and innovative project that is advancing clean hydrogen as a fuel and feedstock supporting the path to a lower-carbon energy future. TSK is committed to supporting our customers and partners in navigating the energy transition and meeting their decarbonization goals. This integrated renewable hydrogen hub is a footprint and transformative project in the development of green hydrogen, long-term energy storage and large-scale decarbonization. Based on our extensive experience in building complex energy infrastructure projects, TSK for 35 years has played key roles in design, engineering and construction projects spanning various technologies from renewable energy or hybrid systems to energy storage.”
