A 500-megawatt green hydrogen facility is to be built at the Portuguese port of Sines by 2025, its developers have announced.

Danish fund manager and offshore wind developer Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has joined forces with Portuguese developer Madoqua Renewables and Dutch consultancy Power2X to build a €1 billion ($1.08 billion) project which will use 500 MW of electrolysers to produce 50,000 tonnes per annum of green hydrogen and 500,000 tpa of green ammonia.

It is the second large-scale green hydrogen project announced in Iberia by CIP this year, following the unveiling of the 2 gigawatt Project Catalina in Spain in February.
