Fusion Fuel and Duferco developing hydrogen market in Italy


Italy – Fusion Fuel has signed a commercial agreement with Duferco Energia to develop the green hydrogen ecosystem in Italy and select MENA markets.

Duferco Energia, a subsidiary of the multinational steel and commodity trading company Duferco Group, is focused on the management of energy production assets and the marketing of energy services. The companies expect to develop a pipeline of development opportunities and turnkey technology-sale projects by leveraging Duferco’s local sales network, knowledge of local markets, and deep shipping and logistics expertise.

Unique aspect

The agreement’s first project is a 1.25 MW green hydrogen pilot project that will be developed at Duferco’s industrial site in Giammoro, Sicily. Fusion Fuel is expected to supply 50 of its HEVO-Solar trackers for the proposed project, which is set to begin construction in 2024. The facility would generate approximately 46 tonnes of green hydrogen per year, which would be used to power a molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) system, giving the project a unique and innovative aspect.
