German hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer Proton Motor Fuel Cell has received an order for a stand-alone fuel cell system based on its 50 kW container solution for use in Mallorca, Spain. The HyShelter® system, which will be deployed at a hotel in Palma de Mallorca as part of the Green Hysland project, is being commissioned by a Spanish gas, energy and infrastructure utility and is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2024.
Green Hysland for hydrogen ecosystem
The Green-Hysland project aims to establish a hydrogen ecosystem in Mallorca so that the island becomes the first H2 hub in Southern Europe. This will be achieved by producing green hydrogen from solar energy and delivering it to end users such as the island’s tourism, transportation, industrial and energy sectors, including gas grid injection for on-site green heat and electricity.
First southern European showcase project
Proton Motor CEO Dr. Faiz Nahab issued the statement on the new order, saying that it is the first order for Proton Motor from Spain and thus represents an expansion of the company’s market presence. The launch of the Green Hysland initiative was announced in February 2011. It is in line with the new EU hydrogen strategy and will be the first southern European flagship project to create an integrated “green hydrogen ecosystem” in the Balearic Islands.
