    Neoenergia (Iberdrola) to develop green hydrogen and offshore wind projects in Rio de Janeiro

    September 30, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras



      The memorandum signed with Prumo, the conglomerate responsible for the construction of the Port of Açu controlled by the US fund EIG, is part of Neoenergia's strategy to promote green hydrogen in the South American country, where it has already signed memorandums of understanding with the states of Pernambuco, Ceará and Rio Grande do Norte; and with the State of Rio Grande do Sul for the development of green hydrogen plants and studies for offshore wind power generation off the coast of Rio Grande do Sul, in the Águas Claras marine park.

      This new partnership, presented on the occasion of the 20th edition of Rio Oil & Gas, the largest oil and gas event in Latin America, provides for cooperation in conducting studies to promote the two technologies for the generation of 'green' energy.

      In addition to the port and logistic relevance, Porto do Açu's capacity to gather several industrial segments in the Southeast region, which concentrates great demand for energy consumption in the country, stands out.


      Porto do Açu is also projected as an area of the Brazilian coast that presents one of the best wind conditions for the installation of offshore wind farms, with major global players interested in installing projects on its coast.

      The Iberdrola subsidiary highlighted that the initiative can contribute to the promotion of offshore wind energy, fostering socioeconomic and environmental development, infrastructure, and value and supply chains in the Southeast Region. In addition, future green hydrogen plants will be able to meet the demand of the country's industries.

      According to the agreement, the projects can have synergy with the port infrastructure both in the installation phase, as it serves as a support area for the manufacturing and storage of materials, and in the operation phase, allowing the docking of special vessels.

      Neoenergia's CEO, Eduardo Capelastegui, pointed out that the expansion of the renewable portfolio reinforces the group's commitment to decarbonization, innovation and the development of renewable technologies." "Brazil will continue to demand strong investments in the energy sector in the coming years. We are fully capable of generating value for the Brazilian market," he added.

      For her part, Neoenergia's executive director of Renewables, Laura Porto, assured that the company "is focused on developing a portfolio of renewable wind and photovoltaic projects," in addition to team building and strategic alliances for the development of offshore wind generation and green hydrogen pilot projects.
