This megaproject has planned an investment of 1,800 million euros up to 2026, with the creation of some 8,000 direct and indirect jobs.The technology for the production of Hydrogen will be through the well-known electrolytic processes of water, for which the installation of electrolyzers with an estimated power of 112MW is planned.
Petronor will develop with said Hydrogen, a plant for the manufacture of synthetic fuels for multiple applications respectful with the environment.
