Enel, Maire Tecnimont Subsidiaries to Build Green Hydrogen Plant in US
By Joshua Kirby
Enel SpA said Wednesday that its United States subsidiary has
agreed with a subsidiary of Maire Tecnimont SpA to build a
green-hydrogen production plant in the country.
Enel Green Power North America Inc. and NextChem signed a
memorandum of understanding to build the plant, which is expected
to be operational in 2023, Enel said. The plant will use energy
produced by one of EGPNA's solar plants to produce green hydrogen,
which will be supplied to a biorefinery.
NextChem will serve as an engineering, procurement and
construction contractor, Enel said. The agreement represents the
first application of a framework cooperation agreement between the
two partners, which has a scope for joint projects including the
testing of advanced technologies to increase the efficiency of
producing green hydrogen with renewable energy.
