Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) formed a joint venture with AustriaEnergy and Ökowind to develop CIP’s 1.7-gigawatt HNH Project, the first project for CIP in Chile.
The HNH Project is a large-scale, export-oriented green hydrogen and green ammonia project with an expected investment size of more than $3 billion. Once operational, the HNH Project will consist of a 1.7-gigawatt onshore wind farm, electrolyzers, and an ammonia plant and port facility. It is expected to produce 1 million metric tons of green ammonia per year, substantially contributing to Chile’s goal to be a global lead in green hydrogen/ammonia production.
The HNH Project will form part of CIP’s Energy Transition Fund, focused on power-to-X and other next generation-renewable technologies to facilitate the decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors such as agriculture and transportation.
“We believe that Chile has the potential to be a key global player in the production and expor
