Total Eren to build a mega-scale green hydrogen plant in Chile



French renewable power company Total Eren is building a mega-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia plant in Chile.


The company has already commissioned an initial engineering study for the giant green hydrogen plant.


The project is located in the Magallanes region of southern Chile. To be noted, Chile's different northern and southern climates have some of the best solar-power and wind resources.


According to the company, Wood energy engineering consultancy will provide a conceptual engineering study for Total Eren's H2 Magallanes Project.


It informed that the project is a part of the plan for "development of 10 GW of onshore wind power capacity, a desalination plant to make clean water to feed electrolyzers, 8 GW of electrolysis capacity, and an ammonia plant to turn the hydrogen product into green ammonia."


Total Eren informed that it secured the land for the project last year.


Total Eren has been working in Chile since 2019. The project would contribute in achieving Chile's national goal of building out 25 GW of green hydrogen capacity by 2030 upon completion.


"This highly pioneering and innovative project represents the significant investment needed to realize not only the future of green hydrogen production but the potential of green ammonia, which is vital for ensuring sustainable food production, and an alternative clean fuel source in accelerating the energy transition," Thomas Grell, President of Renewable Energy & Power at Wood, commented.
