Renewable hydrogen is one of the Primafrio Group's projects in its strategy to achieve emissions neutralisation by 2050. Therefore, in line with its ESG strategy, the leading international logistics operator in temperature-controlled transport is a collaborating partner of the SHYNE (Spanish Hydrogen Network) project, the largest multi-sector consortium in Spain created to promote the decarbonisation of the economy through renewable hydrogen. Primafrio thus reinforces its commitment to the continuous improvement of all processes, prioritising R&D&I and investment in technology to continue to be a benchmark in sustainable logistics, and is positioned as the first logistics operator in the country to form part of this consortium.
Key vector of the energy transition
SHYNE brings together 22 companies and 11 associations, technology centres and universities under the leadership of Repsol with the aim of promoting renewable hydrogen projects in all areas of the Spanish economy and fostering rapid and effective decarbonisation through this energy vector, which is one of the keys to the energy transition.
In turn, it will deploy projects in ten autonomous communities and will have a total investment of 3,230 million euros that will serve to develop more competitive technologies and evolve both Spanish industry and its infrastructures towards decarbonisation, generating more than 13,000 jobs.
This project was presented at Campus Repsol and was attended by the Secretary of State for Energy, Sara Aagesen, who pointed out that "renewable hydrogen is a national project. It is the piece of the puzzle we are missing to advance towards the decarbonisation of the economy and achieve climate neutrality by 2050, and to advance in the development of knowledge, 'made in spain' technology and the consolidation of the business fabric and industrial value chains".
For his part, the Secretary General for Industry and SMEs, Raül Blanco, closed the event by stressing that "Spain has a unique opportunity and all the capacity to lead the hydrogen industrial value chain in Europe".
