September 2 (Renewables Now) - Brazil’s Ceara state governor Camilo Santana announced on Wednesday that a 3-MW green hydrogen project will be developed by EDP Energias do Brasil SA (BVMF:ENBR3).

To be located at the Pecem Port and Industrial complex (CIPP), the pilot project will require an investment of BRL 41.9 million (USD 8.1m/EUR 6.8m). The scheme is the first of its kind not only in the state but also in the whole country as well as EDP’s local debut in this segment.

The modular unit on the site will be able to produce 250 normal cubic metres per hour (Nm3/h) of gas and is seen to commence power generation as early as December 2022.

The scheme is part of EDP’s research and development (R&D) initiative in which the local unit of Portuguese utility EDP - Energias de Portugal SA (ELI:EDP) will develop a roadmap with analysis of scalability scenarios, considering all downstream and upstream links of hydrogen production, the government noted.
