Rio Grande do Norte state government has held talks with two European investors interested in adding green hydrogen production to a project for a 1,043.5-MW wind and solar hybrid complex in the northeastern state.
The hybrid complex is being developed by local company Maturati. It will feature a 231-MW wind park and an 812.5-MW solar plant. The investors are looking to add green hydrogen production to cater to demand in the domestic and international markets.
Rio Grande do Norte’s governor Fatima Bezerra signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Enerfin do Brasil, the Brazil-based renewables subsidiary of Spanish infrastructure builder Elecnor SA, to collaborate on a green hydrogen pilot project. On the same day, Bezerra also presented the state’s green hydrogen programme to EDP Renovaveis SA.
