The Brazilian coast has the greatest comparative advantages for the generation of wind energy and green hydrogen, and it is for what you large freighters must converge to supply. That source of sustainable and cheap energy must supply industry from now on da next decade.
At the request of Henrik Andersen, CEO of Vestas, the largest manufacturer of equipment for wind power generation for China. EITHER The group also has a business unit dedicated to o hydrogen.
Andersen Esteve in Brazil in the last few days, visiting the factory of Vestas in Aquiraz, not Ceará, and also the new president of Petrobras, Jean Paul Prates, not Rio de Janeiro. And I converted to CNN No office of Vestas in São Paulo.
“I had a conversation with Jean Paul Prates about how politics is related to wind energy and hydrogen will be formed in Brazil”, Andersen said.
“We talked about how the market could be developed not Brazil. I have a global experience and have supply input about where it works bem. I hope I can inspire you where to look for inspiration in other countries you are embarking on a similar road.”
The executive says, no entanto, that Brazil already has a better regulation attractive that, for example, in Europe, where the bureaucracy works through implantation of new wind farms. By isso, second ele, or continent is not substituting the expected rhythm or Russian gas, alvo de sanções, by wind energy.
The electricity generated by the wind will be used not only for supply residences and industries, but also to generate hydrogen energy. Electrolysis, which separates the hydrogen from oxygen, requires electricity.
If this energy is renewable, or hydrogen is considered green. This is where we enter the wind farms do Norte e Nordeste do Brasil, to supply the ships that It will generate hydrogen energy from the ocean.
“Hydrogen is one of the technologies that receive more investment in the sector of the energy transition today”, observes Andersen.
“Eletrolysis is gaining scale and it will happen in this decade. In 2030, industries such as steel, transportation and Navigation will not be a complete transformation, but it will first steps in the direction of it.”
“I am very excited about Brazil”, affirms the executive. “O North eo Northeast will potentially become an energy hub of hydrogen, which will be transported in pipelines for installations industries in other parts of Brazil, or will give rise to new Industries in places where hydrogen energy is available. The closer the consumers are to where the energy is produced, the greater the efficiency.”
He says that Latin America is one of the lowest cost regions generation of wind and hydrogen energy. “Tem advantages comparisons to offer to the rest of the world, because, it was called Observe the broken two large freighters, they will have to stop, typically on the east coast of Latin America, to supply with green energy.”
A Coreia do Sul is increasing its supply of off shore wind power, it costs 4 to 5 times more than Here, analyze the CEO of Vestas.
“So they have a lot to depend on of nuclear energy and carvão, which is highly polluting.” By iso, He says, cargoes will give preference to supply America Latina.
The sector grows double digits (10% or more) per year in Latin America in Asia, according to Andersen. Only 1% gives matrix world energy and wind
The dominant fatia is still the energy fossil. “I will not change for 50% in ten years. but we are still I haven’t started, there’s still a lot to live.”
Vestas was responsible for the installation of the first turbine of wind energy in Brazil, in 2000, says Andersen. In 2016, at company set up a factory in Aquiraz, not Ceará, which also It works as a hub for Latin America.
Vestas generates 2,000 direct jobs and about 8,000 indirect ones região, metade no Brasil. “O supply of general energy permanent employers”, orgulha-se or executive.
“Um 2019, quanwhere I became CEOI met 70 Brazilians who were sending Trained in Denmark to work in sales at Vestas in same week in which havYoWe have announced a reduction in functiontorivers in Denmark.”
He justifies the contracts in Brazil by saying that and precise ter You are near where the customers are. “No.We do not intend to export Components from Denmark or from Europe. By isso we have ftonot brica Brazil.”
Here is a veiled comparison with China, which provides for o world all solar energy equipment manufactured in the territory chinese
“I was at the sixth fair in Fortaleza and saw all those colleagues working on it is the realization of a dream”, says Andersen.
“My pai foi opertoriver of ftobrica to life all For me, see jobs permanent numa indorstria that isto here to fazer or preitherximo yesandass and A testimonial of how we work at Vestas more alsoandWhat a joy for these familiesYolias.
