Being developed by a joint venture of Galp (75 percent) and Mitsui & Co. Ltd (25 percent), the Advanced Biofuels Unit will have a 270,000 tonnes per annum capacity and will produce renewable diesel (HVO) and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from bio-feedstock and waste residues.
For this unit, Technip Energies will work in consortium with Technoedif Engenharia, a large engineering firm in Portugal, to complete the EPsCm project.
The Green Hydrogen Unit, composed of a 100 MW electrolysis plant, will produce up to 15,000 tonnes per annum of renewable hydrogen, using proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers which will be supplied by Plug Power.
This unit will allow the replacement of approximately 20 percent of the existing grey hydrogen consumption of the Sines refinery and will lead to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of an estimated 110,000 tonnes annually.
Both units represent a gross investment estimated at EUR 650 million and will transform the Sines refinery into one of the most important low-carbon platforms in Portugal.
The Final Investment Decision for these two important projects is a major step taken by Galp to transform the refining industry in Portugal. Technip Energies, who has been supporting Galp strategy since the early phases of those two projects, is now delighted to be selected as a partner for the execution phase of both. This investment is another example of how Technip Energies enables the decarbonization of the energy industry through collaboration, innovation, and technology integration, commented Marco Villa, Chief Operating Officer of Technip Energies.
