Over the last 20 years, Empresarios Agrupados has been applying its extensive experience in renewable energy engineering to hydrogen production projects as part of more than 10 different national and international R&D and Innovation programs.
Renewable hydrogen is a key sustainable solution for decarbonizing the economy, since it can be considered part of the solution to achieving climate neutrality by 2050. It is also key to developing innovative value chains for industry as well as a green economy with high added value. In this context, Empresarios Agrupados has been performing for the past years engineering for renewable H2 production plants, accompanying our clients with customized advice from the technical and economic point of view at the hands of a specific section of multidisciplinary engineers with expertise in H2 technologies.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is a set of technological processes that seek to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by capturing it and storing it safely for future use. CCS technology is essential to achieving global reduction in CO2 as long as fossil fuels are used to meet energy demand. In addition to the electric power sector, CCS is a strategic technology for decarbonzing energy-intensive industries. Lastly, CCS technology can also be used in hydrocarbon recovery processes and other future uses currently under development.
During the last 20 years, Empresarios Agrupados has been characterized for being a technological leader not only in all the fields that make up the Natural Gas value chain in gaseous state (Distribution and Power Generation in Combined Cycles), but also for participating in Liquefied Natural Gas projects. That is why we develop engineering and technological innovation capabilities in all types of natural gas infrastructures extending this value chain (Storage, Liquefaction and Regasification).
Because production and demand of electric power varies greatly, technologies are needed that can ensure a steady yet flexible supply.
This is why Empresarios Agrupados takes part in Power Storage Projects with technologies that provide greater backup to the system, thereby ensuring that production can cover the demand for energy, i.e., to ensure the supply.
Reduction of Emissions
One of the main fronts and climate debates worrying society today is the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere to prevent the progressive warming of the Earth. In its commitment to the planet Empresarios Agrupados rises to the challenge of keeping the industry competitive while also protecting the environment by developing:
Natural Gas & LNG Facilities
Empresarios Agrupados has become regarded as a leading technological company not only in all the fields making up the value chain of natural gas in its gaseous form, such as in the distribution and production of energy in combined cycle plants, but also in participating in Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) projects. This is why Empresarios Agrupados is honing its engineering and technological innovation capacities for all types of natural gas infrastructures, increasing its value chain (storage, liquefaction, and regasification).
At present, Empresarios Agrupados participates in the basic engineering for small- and medium-scale LNG storage projects, which has given our invaluable knowledge of the equipment comprising these facilities, such as: cryogenic storage tanks, cryogenic pumps, cryogenic valves and piping, etc.
The end use of the LNG in this type of projects has varied considerably, from refueling for heavy vehicles, refueling boats with LNG (bunkering), and supplying natural gas to adjacent industries.
Sea power is energy obtained from the movement of the tides or ocean currents. The energy produced by tides as they ebb and flow is used by turbines to move the mechanical works of the alternator, thereby producing electric power.
Similarly, ocean currents can be used to generate electricity by means of marine turbine generators, with the great advantage of being a renewable energy that is also constant throughout the year, and thus able to operate as a base mode.
