Marseille, France (PortSEurope) January 19, 2022 – The Grand Port Maritime de Marseille (GPMM) and H2V Fos have signed an agreement to develop a renewable hydrogen production project with a capacity of 600 MW. The facility will be located in the Caban area of Fos-sur-Mer and constructed over six phases from 2026 to 2031 over 36 hectares and associated with the CSF NSE (Strategic Committee
for New Energy Systems) South Basin project. GPMM’s investment is around €750 million ($850.1 million). The installation will produce 84,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually by the electrolysis of water and renewable energy. According to a joint press release from the Port of Marseille and H2V Fos, it will “enable the creation of 165 direct jobs and 100 indirect jobs”. The objective is to decarbonise the activities of the industrial port zone of Fos-sur-Mer and thus avoid the discharge of 750 000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere annually. About H2V Launched in 2016, H2V builds renewable hydrogen production plants of 100 MW. Its first two units are scheduled to be commissioned in 2022 (Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque in Hauts-de-France and the Port-Jérôme industrial zone in Normandy). H2V is part of the french industrial group Air Liquide. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2022.
