BP Launches Plans For Low-Carbon Green Hydrogen Cluster In Spain’s Valencia Region

The title of this post is the same as that of this press release from BP.

These are the four bullet points.

  • Aims to make Valencia region a leader in green hydrogen production
  • Cluster to include world-scale green hydrogen production at bp’s Castellón refinery of up to 2GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030
  • Supports transformation and decarbonization of the refinery, together with tripling biofuel production
  • Transformation of Castellón could see bp invest up to €2 billion

This is the first paragraph.

bp today launched the green hydrogen cluster of the Valencia region (HyVal) at its Castellón refinery. Led by bp, this public-private collaborative initiative is intended to be based around the phased development of up to 2GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030 for producing green hydrogen at bp’s refinery.

It certainly is a big hydrogen-friendly project and is a roadmap of how to decarbonise an oil refinery.

This massive commitment to hydrogen makes me more certain, that bp’s offshore 50 MW wind farm twenty miles from Aberdeen, is designed to produce hydrogen for the granite city.

Are bp putting together a strategy to bring hydrogen to the world?

After all hydrogen is the only zero-carbon fuel, that can directly replace fuels like natural gas, diesel and many hydrocarbon fuels in a large number of applications.
