    Cas Tresorer, the injection point for Spain's first green hydroproduct

    May 31, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The hydroproduct, which is currently being processed and is expected to be completed by the end of the year, will allow all the green hydrogen produced at the Lloseta plant to be injected directly into the Cas Tresorer position, the starting point of Mallorca's gas transport and distribution networks, and will be prepared to transport the entire production capacity of the Lloseta plant, which will initially be 300 tons (2.5 megawatts of electrolysis power to produce hydrogen). This project, reportsthe Balearic Government, brings together all the central elements of the hydrogen value chain through production, transport and distribution infrastructure, and the final use of renewable hydrogen.

      According to the insular Executive, the project includes hydrogen production capacity by electrolysis connected to local photovoltaic plants, the development of the hydrogen product, as well as the different end-user applications: buses and automobiles, cogeneration applications with fuel cell and thermal applications in buildings. In this way -explained from the Govern-, a consumer will be able to purchase green hydrogen produced in the electrolysis plant of Lloseta buying the guarantee of origin and, with it, all the capacity of emission reduction of the acquired hydrogen.

      The initial investment of this infrastructure will be 1.5 million euros and will consist of a 4" diameter pipeline, designed to operate at a relative pressure of 85 bar to transport hydrogen for its subsequent injection into the gas pipeline network on the island of Mallorca from the Cas Tresorer (Sanson01) position of the Sanson Sant Joan de Déu Cas Tresorer Son Reus gas pipeline, which belongs to the infrastructure network of the company Redexis in Mallorca and which is part of the 1.200 kilometers of networks that the company has in operation on the island and that will serve to distribute hydrogen to all consumers who want to purchase it.

      In it -reports the Govern- it will be possible to inject up to the maximum of green hydrogen allowed by the current Spanish legislation, which is 574 tons, that is to say, 2 % of the gas flow currently used in Mallorca.

      Juan Pedro Yllanes, Vice President and Minister of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory of the Government of the Balearic Islands: "We continue to move forward and fulfill what we say. Balearic Islands is a reference in the generation of green hydrogen and we continue taking steps to distribute this clean fuel that will help us to decarbonize our islands. I want to remind that we are taking steps to stop consuming fossil fuels, not only at the level of thermal power plants, but also in terms of mobility. Thanks to the hydrogen that is already being generated in the Lloseta plant, several public buses will be able to circulate before the end of the year without emitting polluting gases. We are pioneers in the production of green hydrogen throughout the State and we want to be an example so that this model is imitated in other territories of Spain, but also in the EU".

      Fidel López Soria, executive director of Redexis: "in our firm commitment to the promotion and real progress of the energy transition, Redexis wants to make available to the citizens of Majorca the most fundamental and sustainable infrastructures for the distribution of green hydrogen, pioneering a necessary infrastructure that will allow the residential, tertiary and industrial sector of the island to use a 100% renewable energy, in a project aimed at a more efficient and sustainable society".

      The construction of the hydro-product is part of the European grant project Green Hysland, made up of more than 30 organizations, companies and technology centers, including Enagás, Acciona and Cemex. The European Union, through the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, has committed 10 million euros to support the deployment of the necessary infrastructure to make Mallorca's renewable hydrogen ecosystem a reality in the period 2021-2025, and brings together all the core elements of the hydrogen value chain through production, transport and distribution infrastructure, and the end use of renewable hydrogen.
