Enel Green Power and Sapio subscribe an agreement to supply green hydrogen produced by NextHy in Sicily
Cranking a force of green hydrogen produced using renewable energy from the Carlentini wind ranch in eastern Sicily is the focus of the agreement inked by Enel Green Power and Sapio. The agreement provides for the trade to Sapio of the green hydrogen that will be produced, stored and made available from 2023 at the Carlentini and Sortino product spots, home to Enel Green Power’s futuristic NextHy innitiative. Sapio will be responsible for developing the request and handling the distribution of renewable hydrogen to the end client.
“ In surrounds where electrification isn’t fluently attainable, green hydrogen is the crucial result for decarbonization as it’s emigration-free and offers promising development prospects,” reflected Salvatore Bernabei, CEO of Enel Green Power. “ For this reason we’re agitated about the agreement with Sapio. It’s an agreement that looks to the future by combining technological invention and sustainable product”.
“ Sapio is explosively committed to contributing to the EU’s achievement of the UN SDGs,” reflected Alberto Dossi, President of the Sapio Group, “ and with this design we’re taking a firm step towards sustainable development in our country. The agreement with EGP also gives us the occasion to integrate green hydrogen into our business model, which is grounded on our strong technological moxie in hydrogen and its distribution over 100 times in business. In this way we will also be suitable to give farther support to the artificial conditioning we’re formerly carrying out in Sicily”.
The estimated 200 tons of product capacity of the Sicilian mecca is the subject of the periodic force previsioned in the agreement. Once completely functional, the green hydrogen will be produced substantially by a 4 MW electrolyzer, which is powered simply by the renewable energy of the being wind ranch, and to a lower extent by the state-of-the- art electrolysis systems tested in the platform. Launched by Enel Green Power in September 2021, NextHy’s Hydrogen Industrial Lab is a unique illustration of an artificial laboratory in which product exertion is constantly accompanied by technological exploration. In addition to the sectors reserved for full-scale product, there are also areas devoted to testing new electrolyzers, factors similar as faucets and compressors, and innovative liquid and solid storehouse systems grounded on liquid and solid means of storehouse in line with Enel’s open-concluded approach, this exertion will be open to the collaboration of further than 25 realities including mates, stakeholders and innovative startups. The entire complex is presently witnessing an environmental impact assessment at the Sicily Region’s Department of Land and Environment.
It’s an ambitious design with a sustainable energy source at its heart that will be developed at every link in the chain thanks to the agreement with Sapio, in fact, at NextHy green hydrogen will now not only be produced, stored and moved on an artificial scale, but also bought and used by companies that have understood that green hydrogen is the result for decarbonizing their product processes. In this environment, this experimental approach that’s open to external benefactions will allow the Enel Green Power laboratory platoon to test the design on an artificial scale, so as to produce the stylish conditions for a marketable terrain that can make the utmost of all present and unborn technologies for the generation, storehouse and transport of green hydrogen. It’s an action harmonious with Enel’s Open Innovability ® spirit meeting the challenges of the energy transition by fastening on invention, ideas and their metamorphosis into reality.
