Fos port-industry zone to become site for renewable energy project

The Marseille Fos port authority’s Fos port-industry zone will become the site of France’s first demonstration plant for a ‘Power to Gas’ project.

   Ths Fos port-industry zone, which is managed by the Marseille Fos port authority, will become the site of France’s first demonstration plant for a ‘Power to Gas’ project, the port said.
   The concept, which is currently being studied in several other European countries, offers a carbon-free solution for storing surplus electricity from renewable sources and converting it into gas for pipeline transmission.
   The Power to Gas project at the Fos port-industry zone has been dubbed the ‘Jupiter 1000’ and will cost 30 million euros (U.S. $32.79 million).
   Gas pipeline operator GRTgaz selected hydrogen-based solutions developer McPhy Energy as the suppler for the project.
   “McPhy Energy will supply GRTgaz with hydrogen production equipment with a total power of 1 MW,” McPhy said. “As key components of this project, McPhy Energy electrolysers transform surplus energy originating from renewable sources into hydrogen. This green hydrogen will be injected into the natural gas network either directly or after transformation into methane, the principal constituent of natural gas.”
   The project will be commissioned in 2018, McPhy said.
