Iberdrola will establish Turkey’s first factory green ammonia It has yet to detail its country of residence, the company reported, which will be viable thanks to European funds and will require an investment of 750 million euros.
The operation is part of the framework agreement signed with the energy company. to lengthenThe world’s largest marine marketer and distributor of anhydrous ammonia, representing Europe’s largest ever green ammonia framework agreement for sales of up to 100,000 tons of green ammonia per year from 2026.
Iberdrola is currently developing ammonia plants and green methanol In Europe, the United States, Australia and other countries, this first facility means consolidating a global growth strategy in green hydrogen and derivatives products.
Construction of the first green ammonia plant, 3,500 jobsmostly occupied by local workers. Also, during the operation and maintenance phase, the project will create more than 50 jobs.
It will be linked to the construction of the green ammonia plant. 500 megawatts (MW) As green ammonia will meet all the requirements demanded by Europe, new renewable energies
It will also contribute creation of industrial opportunities and innovation in a growing market with a high export component, explains Iberdrola.
The plant’s green ammonia production will be traded by Trammo for the decarbonisation of various heavy energy-intensive industries across the continent. Netherlands, Germany or France.
European green hydrogen corridor
This project aims to launch the European green hydrogen corridor. Southern Europe has great renewable potential, which allows it to supply competitive green energy. decarbonize heavy industry High energy consumption, which is difficult to reduce by its European partners.
“Innovative projects like this can quickly become viable when you combine one of the world’s largest renewable energy developers with the world’s largest anhydrous ammonia maritime trader. For a year, we’ve been operating Europe’s largest green hydrogen plant. experience and understanding of processes and technology to scale quickly that’s to larger scale projects,” he says. Millan Garcia-Tola Global Director of Green Hydrogen at Iberdrola.
“Reducing industry emissions from green ammonia is a challenge that Iberdrola seeks to do in the years to come. get involved in real projects to develop a more sustainable production chain and achieve decarbonization goals. We are already in talks with Trammo to see similar projects in other markets,” García-Tola added.
Green ammonia can be used, for example, in the decarbonization of existing applications. fertilizer production or chemical industries.
In addition, tremendous market growth is expected in new uses of this product, for example; marine fuel or enabling the transport of green hydrogen.
Saving on water
This last use is necessary to conserve water, because it allows green hydrogen. reduce water consumption by more than 40% Worker involved in a gray ammonia plant.
With 40 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy installed worldwide, Iberdrola has the ambition to double its current portfolio. 80 GW in 2030.
The company pioneered the production of green hydrogen. Three factories in operation until 2023 and Europe’s largest electrolyzer (20 MW) at the Puertollano plant in Spain.
Iberdrola develops more than 60 hydrogen projects 8 countriesIncluding green ammonia and green methanol in geographies such as Iberia, the United States, or Australia.
As the world’s largest maritime trading company with a leading global position in the industry Commercialization and distribution of anhydrous ammonia since 1965, Trammo is playing an active role in the transition to decarbonisation of the industrial sector and is helping to have a significant amount of green ammonia on the market by 2035.
