Coordinated by the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN), the project will receive EUR 10.7 million for demonstrating the full value chain of green hydrogen.

The project will utilise renewable energy from a 6 MW offshore wind facility to produce green hydrogen using a marinized high-efficiency electrolysis unit.

A 1 MW Gateway series electrolyser from Stargate will be installed in the onshore hydrogen production plant at the PLOCAN site on Gran Canaria. The generated green hydrogen and oxygen will be used at the local hospital complex.

The EUR 3 million grant awarded to Stargate will include the delivery and installation of the company’s 1 MW electrolyser system including Stargate Stellar series stacks as well as H2/O2 compression and storage equipment.

“Stargate looks forward to delivering our Gateway series electrolyser specifically developed for maritime applications.  Being part of this important demonstration project brings Stargate to the technological forefront of the rapidly developing field of maritime electrolysis, paving the way for future on-shore and off-shore installations,” said Rainer Küngas, Stargate CTO.


In addition to Stargate, the project consortium includes the following partners: ESTEYCO, NeoDyne, 2G Solutions, ICoRSA, CMC, SCS, GOBCAN, SPLP, and EMEC as an associated partner.

This project is part of the Zer0 Net Emissions 2030 Health Strategy, specifically focusing on sustainable projects of strategic importance.

The project will start on 1 September and will last for five years, The total budget is EUR 13 million out of which EUR 10.7 million will be covered by the European Union.
