empresa britanica lidera proyecto catalina

The British company Wood has been selected to lead the engineering of the ambitious Catalina project in Teruel, which seeks to establish a benchmark in the production of green hydrogen. Developed by a consortium led by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, together with Enagás and Fertiberia, the project will fuse 1.5 GW of renewable energy from wind and solar sources to power a 500 MW electrolyzer, generating green hydrogen.

Recently highlighted for its relevance, the Catalina project in Andorra (Teruel) places Wood in a position of technical authority. The firm will be in charge of making crucial decisions, such as technology selection, preliminary studies, basic and detailed engineering (FEED), as well as support in the construction bidding process (EPC).

The Catalina project and its commitment to green hydrogen

This project aims to cover 15% of Spain’s current hydrogen demand, thus enhancing Spain’s position as a global hub for green hydrogen. This effort will contribute significantly to the decarbonization of critical industrial sectors, such as fertilizers and petrochemicals, aligning with national and European renewable hydrogen targets.

The Catalina project’s hydrogen production will address the needs of local, regional and national industries, playing a vital role in reducing carbon emissions. This initiative is part of the efforts to achieve the renewable hydrogen targets set by Spain and the European Union.

Giuseppe Zuccaro, president of Process Projects and Chemicals at Wood, expressed his pride in the trust placed in the company to lead a project of Catalina’s size and complexity. He highlighted the importance of Catalina as a pioneering project worldwide in the production of green hydrogen and its contribution to Spain’s energy transition.

Zuccaro also highlighted the combination of Wood’s deep hydrogen expertise and ability to execute highly complex projects, along with a strong engineering base in the region. Wood’s involvement with Catalina will not only expand its hydrogen portfolio, but also reaffirm its reputation as a partner of choice for hydrogen production and industrial decarbonization projects.

The Catalina project will be carried out by Wood’s consulting and project teams in both Spain and the UK, ensuring expert and coordinated execution. This project not only represents a significant advance in renewable energy production, but also signals Wood’s commitment to innovation and sustainability in the energy sector.
