Redexis has begun construction of the first hydrogen pipeline in Spain to inject 100% green hydrogen into the natural gas transport network, located on the island of Mallorca, as part of the Green Hysland project.
Redexis is the first company in Spain to obtain administrative and execution authorisation from the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge to install a green hydrogen injection system for one of its primary transport pipelines, specifically the one located in San Juan-Cas Tresorer-Son Reus, on the island of Majorca.
This project represents a historic milestone for the sector, given that it is the first renewable hydrogen injection facility authorised in the Spanish gas system and will allow this vector to be injected into the natural gas network that supplies the entire island of Mallorca, which in turn comprises more than 160 kilometres of gas pipelines and 1,150 kilometres of distribution networks.
The hydrogen pipeline will be 3.2 kilometres long between the unloading point where the tubetrailers leaving Lloseta will arrive, and the injection point. The hydrogen pipeline will transport renewable hydrogen and is expected to inject up to 190 Tn/year of hydrogen (6,327 MWh/year) in its initial stage, with the possibility of reaching up to 575 Tn/year (19,147 MWh/year). This will positively affect more than 115,000 households and 2,000 tertiary and industrial consumers, who will be able to enjoy a sustainable and 100% renewable fuel.
This hydrogen pipeline will represent an important step forward in national and European decarbonisation projects, as well as bringing hydrogen closer to segments such as industrial and domestic. For us, it is an unprecedented milestone that responds to the development of decarbonisation in Spain.Fidel López Soria, CEO of Redexis
With an investment of more than 3 million euros, the hydrogen pipeline will lead to a reduction in emissions of between 1,265 and 3,829 Tn CO2.
This infrastructure is part of the EU project Green Hysland, made up of more than 30 organisations, which brings together all the core elements of the hydrogen value chain through production, transport and distribution infrastructure and the end use of renewable hydrogen.
