Green hidrogene Basque Y

Torraval collaborates on the green hydrogen Basque Y project powered by Iberdrola. The initiative has an investment of 37 million Euros for the construction of three  hydrogens that will  represent 10 MW of electrolysts for a total production of 4,000 kg/day of green hydrogen.     In addition to the  installation of self-consumption ‘on-site’  photovoltaic plants which, together with the renewable energy supplied by Iberdrola,  will make possible the supply of 100% renewable and emissions-free energy for these new facilities.

Green hydrogen generation plants will be located in the logistics centers of Vitoria/Júndiz, Bilbao and San Sebastián/Pasajes. The aim is to promote the decarbonization of heavy ground transport, buses and industrial light vehicles,  as well as port and airport uses,as well as the chemical industry.

The project calls for the creation of energy storage equipment, intelligent batteries that will accumulate the surplus photovoltaic energy produced that will be poured into grid or intended for hydrogen production at optimal times.

The initiative will lead to the creation of 1,700  jobs,  as well as the purchase and contracting of service of more than 30 local  collaborating  companies.



30 Basque companies will participate through their expertise field. The supplier value chain consists of the following companies:  ABC Compressors, Ampo, Arteche, Babcock Valves, Bético, Boslan, Calderería Mañez, Consonni, EIA Ingeniería Soluciones, Elecnor, Emica, Goizea, Hydroambiente (Elecnor group), Idom, Indar, Inecosa, Ingeteam, Iointek, Jema, Ksb, Mesa, Ormazabal, Pine, Schneider Electric, Tambora, Tamoin, TMC, Torraval, Tubos Reunidos.


The project, part of the EU Next Generation program, has the support of the Basque Government  and the provincial councils, as well as the Council of Vitoria  and Ports of Bilbao and Pasajes. Moreover, Basque companies or operating in this territory, support  the project such as Acotral, Aena, Alsa, Avanza, CAF, Disfrimur, Irizar, Lascaray, MFS, PepsiCo, Primafrío, Solaris, Tecniruta, Transportes Mazo, 686 Transportes Logísticos y Portuarios y Transportes Saavedra.

“These developments would contribute to the creation of a cross-cutting project to drive a sustainable industrial model, based on green hydrogen. It would also allow the reduction of energy dependence from renewable energy produced with indigenous resources and enhance synergies between the logistics, energy and industrial sectors”, explains  Millán García-Tola, global director of Hydrogen of Iberdrola. In addition, it encourages progress towards greater airport-port-city integration, boosting mobility promoted by green hydrogen and creating technical/scientific knowledge.
