September 7 (Renewables Now) - The Julio Verne green hydrogen pilot project that several entities are seeking to realise at the Port of Vigo in the Spanish region of Galicia will be commissioned in 2024, Spanish-Japanese renewables group Univergy Solar said on Wednesday.

The goal of the project is to produce green hydrogen and distribute it through a publicly accessible filling station for use in industrial applications, logistics operations and land and sea mobility at the port area.

Univergy Solar is the project coordinator and development partner alongside engineering firm Soltec Ingenieros, renewables plant builder Quantum Group and Galicia-based fisheries association Anfaco-Cecopesca.

According to the regional government of Galicia, the Julio Verne project will involve an investment of EUR 6 million (USD 5.9m).

Univergy, which set up a green hydrogen division in early 2021, further said that it had been working for over two years on a portfolio of hybrid projects that feature hydrogen production. According to the group, green hydrogen represents 7.2% of its total portfolio of projects under development, or around 1.3 GW of electrolysis capacity. These projects are sited in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Chile, Uruguay , Argentina, Japan and Australia, Univergy Solar stated.
