Using surplus hydroelectricity for ammonia production in Paraguay
The Itaipu Dam is the world’s third largest hydroelectric dam, located on the border between Brazil and Paraguay. Paraguay uses only 30% of its share of hydropower from Itaipu, meaning the country has a huge surplus of renewable electricity. Such a surplus could be used for renewable ammonia production via electrolysis-based hydrogen - the concept behind the Villeta Project, currently being developed by ATOME Energy.

ATOME Energy PLC is a renewable hydrogen and ammonia production company with projects planned in Iceland, Paraguay, and Costa Rica. ATOME recently signed a PPA with ANDE (Paraguay’s national power company) for 120 MW, guaranteeing a continuous availability of 100% renewable power for its Villeta Project in Paraguay. ATOME will soon reach a Final Investment Decision for the Villeta Project, with operations to start by 2025.

ATOME also has a number of important project partners at Villeta. Casale is a key ammonia synthesis technology licensor globally, and will provide technology & engineering solutions. URBAS Energy-Ingeser is a Spanish engineering firm, with various projects delivered in Latin America. URBAS Energy will act as FEED consultant.

To discuss progress to date, the technologies involved and further opportunities in Paraguay, Olivier Mussat (Chief Executive Officer, ATOME), Ermanno Filippi (Chief Technology Officer, Casale) & Santiago Del Valle (Managing Director, URBAS Energy-Ingeser) will be joined in conversation by AEA Technology Manager Kevin Rouwenhorst. Join us on Tuesday 25 April @ 4 PM CET for a fascinating discussion, and be sure to submit your questions for the speakers when registering.
