Naturgy has received a favourable Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for 18 wind and photovoltaic projects, jointly representing over 1.3 GW power. The environmental green light for these developments allows the power company to strengthen its commitment to the energy transition and continue to progress in its decarbonisation strategy.
A pan-European project officially launched on November 18th in Paris to accelerate the roll out of the next generation of floating wind technology for a competitive, more scalable and industrial deployment. The ambitious initiative is being led by a consortium of thirteen partners from eight countries including Technip Energies as project coordinator, X1Wind, Naturgy, 2B Energy, Hellenic Cables, Technical University of Denmark, Hydro, Ecole Centrale de Nantes, Schwartz Hautmont, Ocas, Tersan Shipyard, Ocean Ecostructures and Cybernetix.
Naturgy closed the third quarter of 2022 with sizeable organic investments that have boosted its EBITDA to EUR 3.5 billion to achieve a reported net income of EUR 1.06 billion, in an environment of persistently high volatility in international energy markets and high regulatory uncertainly. These results up to September incorporate the retroactive effects of the new purchase price agreement reached with Sonatrach last October. They also include the estimated impact of decoupling the final gas sales prices from their current TTF-indexed hedges.
On Wednesday, the Spanish Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, officially opened the first battery storage facility to be operated by the Naturgy power company anywhere in the world. During her visit, the minister was told about the cutting-edge technology used at this facility alongside Francisco Bustío, the Managing Director of Global Power Generation (GPG) - the international power generation subsidiary of Naturgy, and other members of the GPG team in the country.
Global Power Generation (GPG), a joint venture of Naturgy Energy Group, SA (75%) and the Kuwait Investment Authority (25%), has acquired the Cunderdin hybrid PV solar and energy storage project, with a circa 125 MWdc (100 MWac) solar PV capacity and a 55 MW / 220 MWh battery energy storage system. The Project’s construction is expected to officially start in the last quarter of 2022, while the commercial operation is anticipated to commence in the first quarter of 2024.
The accounts filed by the company include the possible impact from the recent sentence imposed on the Chilean company Metrogas (in which Naturgy holds a 55.6% stake), a ruling that will be appealed. The most cautious estimate of that impact on consolidated net profit for Naturgy stands at 126 million euros.
