The project will also have colocated battery storage to “guarantee the continuity of the operation” and the companies are exploring possible use of wind energy to keep production of green hydrogen.

Vahid Kharidar, director of Solinoor, said: “We believe that there is always a solution for our industry to move to 100% green energy, even when we have challenges with limited transport capacity on the grid.
