First green hydrogen projects emerge in Chile

Two green hydrogen generation projects in northern and southern Chile appear to be on the brink of takeoff. The two projects are Engie and Enaex’s HyEx initiative in the Antofagasta region and the Andes Mining and Energy led ‘Highly Innovative Fuels’ (HIF) venture in Magallanes. The HyEx project targets a 2,000MW solar farm which would power a 1,600MW hydrogen electrolysis plant to produce 124,000 tons of green hydrogen per year.  Meanwhile, the HIF´s pilot is projected for commissioning in 2022 – subject to local approval. The initial production targeted is 350 tons per year of green methanol and 250 tons per year of carbon neutral fuel.
