Fuel Cells Works, Turkey: Enerjisa Üretim Started Green Hydrogen Production at Bandırma Energy Base

The green hydrogen produced within the scope of the pilot project, which was implemented with a total investment of 200 thousand Euros, will be used in the cooling processes of Enerjisa Üretim AŞ’ Bandırma 2 Natural Gas Cycle Power Plant.

At the Bandrma Energy Base, Enerjisa Üretim has launched the production of green hydrogen. As part of the project, which was initiated with a 200k euro investment, green hydrogen will be used to cool the Bandrma 2 Natural Gas Cycle Power Plant.

Emre Erdoan, Deputy General Manager for Operations and Techniques for Enerjisa Production, provided details on the investment, and stated that green hydrogen that uses renewable energy sources will play a large role in global energy supply by 2025.

According to Erdoan, many investments have been made in this area, and many sectors, particularly the energy sector, use sustainable energy sources for decarbonization.

“We have invested €200,000 in establishing a green hydrogen production and storage facility in our own facility,” Erdoan said. Aspilsan Energy, Enerjisa Üretim, Eti Maden, TÜBTAK MAM, and South Marmara Development Agency signed the collaboration protocol for a green hydrogen facility in our city. Globally, hydrogen demand and usage will increase in order to decarbonize businesses and combat climate change.  According to projections, Turkey will be able to export 1.9 million tons of hydrogen by 2050.

Priority is given to exports

Erdoan said: “There are green hydrogen exports to the EU, and there is a quest for collaboration in the business. The ‘Hydrogen Coast Platform’ activities are ongoing in the Southern Marmara Region, and the Bandrma Region offers numerous advantages for producing green hydrogen. The Hydrogen Valley Projects are becoming more significant in the context of the Green Deal. Bandrma, the Northern Aegean, and the entire Aegean Region are rich in renewable energy. Our decision to produce green hydrogen in the Bandrma region was influenced by the presence of running renewable energy facilities there as well as the area’s accessibility to water resources. We picked this area because we can produce big amounts of hydrogen in the future and because we are close to enterprises that will need it. The modest to medium-sized iron and steel sector and fertilizer companies that utilize ammonia and hydrogen are additional advantages of the area. We are surrounded by several OIZs, and Marmara OIZ is beginning its construction. Once more, when higher hydrogen capacity is attained, the fact that the petrochemical plants are confined to a 200-kilometer radius will work in our favor. The presence of port infrastructure in this area is advantageous for exporting hydrogen. At Enerjisa Production Bandrma Energy Base, we furthermore hold a port operating license. Additionally, our plant is crossed by the natural gas pipeline from Greece. These are a few of the solutions we are looking into for the future in order to swiftly and efficiently export green hydrogen to Europe.

According to Erdoan, the primary purpose of the pilot project they conducted for the generation of green hydrogen was to gather comprehensive data regarding the company’s sustainability objectives as well as the process’s feasibility studies.
