Ferrere Uruguay has counselled Enertrag in the development of the renewable energy plant project “Tambor Green Hydrogen Hub”
Ferrere has assisted the German renewable energy company Enertrag in the planning and development of the Tambor Green Hydrogen Hub project, which will include renewable energy plants (wind and photovoltaic) with a capacity of 350 megawatts (MW) as well as an on-site electrolyser and other facilities necessary for the generation of hydrogen from renewable sources.
The project will be developed in the department of Tacuarembó in northern Uruguay in cooperation with the Uruguayan company SEG Ingeniería. Only renewable resources will be used, which makes the final product a renewable e-methanol, whose production emits no greenhouse gases.
The German company aims to produce 15,000 tonnes of green H2 per year. According to the company, Uruguay’s potential is very high, with the capacity to meet Germany’s entire methanol demand.
Aram Sander, head of Enertrag’s PtX International Project Development Department, stated: “We want to support Uruguay’s role as a pioneer in Latin America in the implementation of a green energy transition. Uruguay is an ideal partner for Europe and for us with its high-quality energy resources, its stable regulatory policy framework, as well as its vast experience in enabling and implementing large-scale renewable energy installations.”
Enertrag has more than 10 years of experience in green hydrogen production and is currently developing large-scale international green hydrogen projects in Germany, South Africa and Namibia.
