The use will mainly be industrial with industries such as refining, petrochemicals, steelworks, e-fuels and others.

The other use being considered is mobility (road, river and air).

First stages

Next stages

  • S2 2023: Basic engineering studies initiated in co-financing with industrialists in the basin.
  • 2025: Investment decision.
  • 2028: Forecast commissioning date for first stage of project.

Grid sizing

  • Length: About 150 km in total.
  • Capacity: 25 GWh/day.

Project’s environmental impact

According to an initial assessment, this project could contribute to averting approximately 4 Mt CO2eq/year in emissions in key industrial sectors.
