“There is no one in the world producing green hydrogen using the concentration of solar radiation. Our technology is highly innovative and pioneering”, as “it is the first project in the world on a production scale”, said João Wahnon, from Fusion Fuel.
This Portuguese company is developing the H2 Évora project, which includes the installation of two parks for the production of green hydrogen, one next to the city’s industrial park and the other near the town of Nossa Senhora da Tourega.
Fusion Fuel’s hydrogen will be “mostly” for “injection into the natural gas network and supply to consumer industries, such as refineries, ceramics and cement” and “hydrogen vehicle service stations”, he added.
In addition to the two parks in Évora and businesses all over the world, the company is also building an industrial unit in Benavente (Santarém), representing an investment of €35 million, to manufacture technology for projects to be developed in Portugal and for export.
The company has already selected “more than 800 hectares” for the installation of parks in Sines and Santiago do Cacém, in the district of Setúbal, in Ota, in the municipality of Alenquer (Lisbon), and in Portalegre.
