Green Hydrogen International (GHI) has unveiled plans to develop a green hydrogen production and storage hub in South Texas. Hydrogen City, Texas, will be an integrated green hydrogen production, storage, and transport hub growing to 60 GW in size and producing more than 2.5 billion kilograms of green hydrogen per year.
The project is centered around a hydrogen storage facility in the Piedras Pintas Salt Dome located in Duval County, Texas. Pipelines will deliver the green hydrogen to Corpus Christi and Brownsville, Texas, where it will be turned into green ammonia, sustainable aviation fuel, and other products, or delivered by pipeline directly to hydrogen power plants and other users around the state.
The project will be powered by 60 GW of behind-the-meter solar and wind power with additional renewable energy drawn from the ERCOT grid during periods of low prices.
The project will be built in phases with the first phase expected to commence operations in 2026, consisting of 2 GW of production and two storage caverns at the Piedras Pintas salt dome.
