Hy2gen to Build a Renewable Ammonia Plant in Mexico

18.07.2023 - Hy2gen, a global producer of renewable hydrogen and hydrogen derivative plants, has announced plans to construct a 200 MW renewable ammonia production plant in Campeche, Mexico. The project, named Marengo, is expected to initially produce 180,000 t/y of renewable ammonia for customers in the European Union.

The renewable commodity, made from nitrogen and hydrogen, has great potential to decarbonize industry and transport sectors such as shipping.

“Marengo will play an important role in the production of renewable ammonia for the European Union,” says Hy2gen CEO Cyril Dufau-Sansot. “This is mainly due to the ideal conditions at the site location, such as constant wind and many hours of sunshine. Marengo's electricity needs will therefore be secured by a 415 MW wind farm and a 230 MW solar farm,” he added.

Following the signing of the agreement, feasibility and front-end engineering design (FEED) studies are now planned to gather essential design data and information on the operation of the production facility. These studies are expected to be completed after 24-36 months. Then, the construction phase of the plant will begin, which is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2028.
