Porsche, Siemens Energy build plant for climate-neutral eFuels
Together with the sports car manufacturer Porsche and international partners, Siemens Energy is developing and implementing a pilot project in Chile that is to result in the world's first integrated and commercial large-scale plant for the production of synthetic, climate-neutral fuels (eFuels). Porsche intends to use the synthetic fuels initially in racing, and possibly later in production vehicles.

In the pilot phase, around 130,000 liters of eFuels will be produced as early as 2022. In two steps, capacity is then to be increased to around 55 million liters of eFuels per year by 2024 and to 550 million liters per year by 2026. Porsche is the main purchaser of the green fuel. Other partners in the project are the energy company AME and the oil company ENAP from Chile as well as the Italian energy company Enel.

The Haru Oni pilot project in Chile's Magallanes province is taking advantage of the excellent wind conditions in the south of the country to produce climate-neutral fuel with the help of green wind power. As part of Germany's national hydrogen strategy, Siemens Energy is receiving a grant of around 8 million euros for the project from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
