December 2 (Renewables Now) - Paris-based independent power producer Total Eren has initiated studies for the development of a large-scale green hydrogen project in Chile that will be supported by up to 10 GW of installed wind power generating capacity.

The project, to be known as H2 Magallanes, is planned to be realised near the borough of San Gregorio, in the Magallanes region of southern Chile. It involves the addition of 10 GW of wind capacity to power 8 GW of electrolysers and the construction of a desalination plant, an ammonia production facility and port facilities to transport the green ammonia to national and international markets.

Total Eren said in a statement that it has already secured large private lands for the project and also signed a collaboration agreement with the University of Magallanes. Their public-private partnership will focus efforts on three main pillars: environmental and social studies, education, and research and development (R&D), the announcement says.

The company’s goal is to launch the project in 2025 and have the first hydrogen be produced by 2027.
