Wood Selected As Owner's Engineer for World-leading Green Hydrogen Project in Spain

  • Spain's Catalina Project will produce up to 84,000 tons of green hydrogen per year
  • Wood will provide engineering services throughout the project's development phase
  • The Catalina Project will avoid at least 3 million tons of CO2 in the first ten years of operation

Wood, a leading global consulting and engineering company, has been selected as owner’s engineer on a major green hydrogen production project in Teruel, Spain. The first-of-a-kind Catalina Project, developed by a consortium led by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners through its Copenhagen Infrastructure Energy Transition Fund I K/S, will combine 1.5GW of wind and solar energy to power a 500-MW electrolyser producing green hydrogen.

As the owner’s engineer, Wood will lead as a technical authority of Catalina’s green hydrogen generation plant including technology selection, preliminary studies, front end engineering and design (FEED) and EPC tendering support.

Set to produce enough green hydrogen to satisfy 15% of Spain’s current hydrogen demand, the Catalina project will position Spain as a world-class green hydrogen hub. The hydrogen produced by the facility will supply the demand of the local, regional and national industries, helping to decarbonise hard-to-abate fertilizer and petrochemical sectors, as well as contributing to Spanish and European renewable hydrogen targets.
